    Did you know that Ridgid actually makes a cutter for csst? It's a piece of crap, but they do make one.

      Re: gas pipe problem

      I just wanted to assure everyone that I am a journeyman plumber licensed by the state of Oregon with lots of experience running gas lines, though mostly black pipe. I am very aware of how dangerous gas pipe can be and don't take a repair like this lightly. As for my description of "grunt" as a trade, its just a joke. I noticed that a lot of you own your own business and sometimes working for the man its easy to feel like a grunt. Thanks for all the good feedback from everyone, I think this could end up being a real pain in the a** for service plumbers in the future. Can anybody recommend a gas sniffing tool, it would beat the hell out of soapy water for situations like this.

          to standardize a proprietary fitting would be great, but wont happen because that would mean that all the little kingdoms[manufactures] would have to get together and work together for the greater good of a very important and potently dangerous and very lethal substance called natural gas, that should never be taken ligthly, and i personally feel that i will and all of my esteemed colleagues should refrain from giving advice to anyone not deemed qualified in this very serious field other than to call a licensed and insured professional, you dont often get a second chance to do it right with gas and as you all know this cant be taught on line or in a forum, and good advice can turn ugly in the hands of the wrong person!!!

            on the existing installation,to make that call!

                  True...the CSST cutter just has wider rolls to keep it even as it cuts, plus they're plastic.

                  I have one, buried, god knows where.
