  • Two blades on a pipe cutter?

    Need to pick up a new blade for my 6inch pipe cutter. I looked up the parts list to get a number and order it. the parts list mentions cutter wheel conversion parts for one of the rollers.

    Can you use two cutting wheels at the same time or is it just an optional placement for the blade. If you can run two blades is it effective?

    I use this cutter for steel well casings.

    I have no idea how old it is. It is a No. 6 patent No DES 143075. I'd expect the 6-S is the same or uses the same cutter wheel. If someone knows for sure one way or the other I'd appreciate it.

    Some of the pipe cutters, have cutting wheels on both sides so you do not have to spin the whole cutter around the pipe. Works well in tight quarters.

      if you need to thread the pipe. you want rollers to keep the ridge pushed in/down.

        I have seen a cutter that sprinkler installers use, have 4 cutter wheels. Like for the big 4 inch pipes, and above. Only plus I could see was that they didn't have to turn the tool 360 degrees to get it to cut pipe, only about 90 or so.

          Or, if you want to thread pipe, use a two or four wheel cutter that has been sprung or it out of alignment and does not track square on the pipe. In which case you can thread the pipe using the cutter.

            Not turning 360 can be a big plus but the down side is the ridge that is left on the pipe. We use to use the four blade cutters a bunch doing demolition.
