I'm using a Ridgid 44S 4 head cutter to cut a 2" galvanized pipe in a tight location. I've used single head cutters in the past with no problems, but the 4 head cutter seems to leave a raised ridge around the end of the pipe. The threader will not slip onto the pipe over this raised area. I'm assuming the rollers on the single head cutter, which the 4 head cutter does not have, keeps the ridge from forming. Is there any trick to using the 4 head cutter and avoiding the ridge? Or does the ridge need to be ground off, or otherwise fixed, after the pipe is cut. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.
