          Its hard finding a hole saw to the exact size,I make core-like bits out of black iron pipe...cut some teeth into the end of the appropriate sized iron ,and it'll work...Dummy boarders always breaking the stub-outs..

            YES! In the right spot it'll save an hour or two of work. I mostly use them in irrigation. Use it according to their instructions or you'll eat your way right through the side of the fitting.

              They are OK.They leave a pretty unneven surface on the inside of a socket.Since the tool is designed to cut at O.D. your reamed out fitting socket no longer has the taper it was designed with.

                those are ok for a 1 time repair.

                the real ones i have are carbide inserts and they cut instead of melt.

                can't remember the brand right off the bat tonight, but they are a nice set from 1.5''-4''

                  I've got the same set as Rick . YES ,, they work VERY WELL and can really save some A** at times .

                  The kit is quite expensive , but worth it from the first time it is needed !

                    i have the wheeler -rex set and it is awesome. big time saver , but it was pricey up front but worth it.

                    the other company that makes them is rectorseal.

                      The Wheeler Rex toll is called THE PIPE HOG.I was going to buy one but was curious as to how well it worked.Since Rick gave it the OK I guess it works pretty well.

                              you don't need any special tool for that, the fastest way is to cut that pipe 1 inch alway from the hub of the fitting, take your torch, and heat the inside of the pipe. use your channel lock, and peel the pipe right out of the fitting. trust me i have that same tool in 3", 2", and 1 1/2 and it's a waste of time.
