    of course i perterred to get in before the cabinets. most cabinets didn't have a back, so this was not an issue. an estucion turned backwards cleaned the bullet in a mater of a couple seconds and my ratcheting 15/16'' angle stop wrench literally took seconds to tighten. 1.2 minutes is slow.

    15 seconds is more like it when you're on a roll. it's been years since i've done production work, but i'm sure i can get a hot and cold lav and toilet angle stop done in under a minute.

    i guess you don't remember my 66 seconds to cut, ream, and thread, and screw 1'' steel pipe by hand

    Nah, I only pay attention to what's interesting to me.

      notice you didn't mention oil. anyway, so when are we doing the milwaukee cutter vs. rick? i'm all for it. btw, so you use a escutcheon plate to clean the paint off stub outs? is that right?

        I was taught to sand it bright. Right? Wrong?

        (Yes, even on compression stops.)

          ben, you will be embarrassed after the halfway point.

          you might want to consult with adam before you end up buying me 3 ice cream cones.

          have you forgotten i own the miwaukee cutter

          is 119 cuts enough for you? 3/4'' ok? m or l copper?

          are you sure you can grip the pipe with your shoulder?

          ben trust me, unless my #15 cutter gets stolen during the competition, you'll be smoked liked a cheap cigar

              remember that this is new copper and when they texture and paint, the estucion removes the paint and texture good enough to allow for the nut and ferrule.

              in the tens of thousands of stops i've done, i can't remember a leak caused by paint. the biggest challenge was a bullet stubbed out short and i had to cut with a tiny tim and use a split estucion to trim.

              of course a cabinet that got installed prior to my stops would be an issue if they didn't fall into the open cabinet, but rather a divider or drawers.

                They spray here. And the paint they put on will NOT come off with putting on the escutcheon. Even twisting back and forth. Have to sand it.

                Especially the toilet supply. No paint allowed on any copper. My rule.

                  haven't you read my posts and threads? i have no pride. don't talk about it, let's do this. forget about 119 cuts, lets do a real challenge and do 240 cuts and call it a day . i think type l is good enough. remember the goal is to cut copper pipe the same way you do in the field. got a picture of this mythical 15 cutter?

                          A little trick.

                          I carried a 4" piece of unreamed type "L".
                          Srapes the hardest enamel.The harder the paint the better.

                          If you or your employees leave the drop of solder under the cap don't bother.Use a piece of 1" and start wiping your fittings off on the next one.

                          Installing angle stops on an open wall Rick?
                          No cabinets?
                          Union jobs,gotta luv em.
