i am sure this is not new but i just discovered it and thought i would share it. i am more of an electrician than i am a plumber. a trick that was shown to me some yrs ago to deburr the inside of conduit after cutting is to take a pair of channellocks without the grips, open the jaws all the way and insert the tips of the handles into the end of the conduit and turn. regular size channellocks dont fit as well in 1/2 copper. i have a pair of craftsman ignition pliers (mini channellocks) that i have removed the grips from. these work great in copper. of course it is not as critical in copper to deburr, it does smooth and clean the inner edge which does help making a good joint. the blades on the back of most tubing cutters can be a pain and i have never found them to be very effective. just a little trick i thought id share
