      Who reams anyway?

        If you ever used that reamer you'd understand why they discontinued it.

        It sucked hands down.

              actually the 127 is not bad. it's much less expensive and is more aggressive.

              the 227 is not aggressive enough and is pretty pricey.

              i hope they bring out an updated model or the 127 again.

              for propress, we need a good outside reamer.

                Exactly anyone using one of those on copper either only puts in a couple of pieces at a time(service),or they don't ream at all.The pencil reamers,the thinner the better for me,work the best.Titanium step drill when it gets kicked into high gear,1/2,3/4 and 1" pipe for production housing.

                  Rick,
                  I remember us talking about this before but for some reason we got sidetracked.
                  If the tubing cutters decrease the outside diameter of the pipe substatially why are you adding the step already completed.If anything that tool has the potential of leaving a burr on the outside of the copper and cutting a ring on a propress fitting.

                  The fire sprinkler guys running plastic use the heck out of them though,they're going to be hard pressed to find something to replace it.

                    emergeny call was fine. 30 minutes there and back.

                    lined up an sewer inspection for wednesday afternoon.

                    the purpose of the outside deburring is to knock off the leading edge and allow for a taper type insertion into the propress fitting.

                    although a tubing cutter does a great job in deburring the od. you still want to debur for propress.

                    adam, i hope it's not our doing that jinxed this reamer

                      I assume you guys are talking about plastic reaming tools. I usually just file the edge if I'm using Sch 80 PVC (Xirtec) Or CPVC (Corzan).

                      For reaming Copper I use a NOGA Deburring tool. Works very well.

                        years ago when doing 8" PVC RWL's, we had an adjustable outside beveller, with a handle that worked around the pipe...Not sure if it would work on copper, but it did a fantastic job beveling. I'm gonna look into this

                            Well... we didnt discountinue our reamers. Just this model its now the 227S which will do up to 2 inch. 223 for smaller stuff. And get this the price is less with the same quailty.

                            http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/223S-227...s/EN/index.htm

                            Just wanted to clear up the confusion.

                              i noticed that discontinued inner outer reamer months ago when searching for one online, i worked on an assembly line right out of high school building display fridges for tropicana orange juice, "they looked like large orange juice cartons" the reamer worked wonders on the small diameter tubbing we used. is there anything similar available ? i found it worked so much better than the reamer on my tubbing cutter. timmy
