Next, I wanted to cut 1 1/4" PVC pipe, it says it's good for up to 1 5/8" so I figure I was good to go. I still haven't made the first cut. The blade makes about a 1" cut and gets stuck in the pipe. I can't apply enough pressure to cut like the video shows. (Notice they always cut 1/2" PVC.)
Next I'm going to try scoring the pipe by rotating the work as the blade is just at the surface.
After that I'm going to Lowe's and buy a real one.
I bought this to make nice square burr free cuts. Why can't anything be easy?
Anyone have a power miter saw they want to lend me?
UPDATE: Well, I made it cut a PVC Pipe. Not exactly like butter. 1. Open jaws as wide as possible. 2. Insert PVC and make a cut as much as possible. (about a 1" slice.) 3. Rotate the cutter and try again, this time using both hands -HARD. 4. At some point, the pipe gives up and cuts smoothly.
I've heard (online) that heating the pipe makes it easier, like laying it in the sun.
The cut is very smooth, the pipe didn't crack, and the angle is not perfect, but close. Anything short of a compound miter saw won't do better and you'll have to clean all the burrs off.
Not for weaklings. I may try gloves.
UPDATE 2: I finally made a cut in one pass. I got the device in place and clamped down. Then I placed the pipe and cutter on my work table and pressed down HARD on the handle. I used a folded towel to save my hand. I'd guess it took 100# of pressure. As the PVC cuts, it gets easier. I cut 6 pieces and had to rest. Not for pipe over 1" unless you've had your Wheaties. The jaw needs to be longer or the blade angled back so the work doesn't try to slip out. Live and learn.
The harder you press, the more the blade wanders off 90 degrees, but the cut is acceptable.
Update 3: First the jaws are super tight. You have to pry the handles apart. After about 8 cuts, the jaws have loosened up a lot. Now you need to retighten the screws because if the jaws aren't tight, the blade gets stuck in the pipe and the ratchet doesn't get to move to the next notch.
I finished my project. Hooray for me. I didn't want to spend $30 on a better cutter, and this one did the job...painfully.
It's probably great for 1/2" or 3/4" pipe.
Since this carries the Tekton name, I expected it to be well-made and it is. Two minor items: The little clip to hold the handles together was on backwards; simple matter to flip it around. Then, I couldn't get the tool to open. It turns out that I was being too gentle with it. I grasped both handles and pulled them apart with A LOT OF FORCE. The tool opened up fine and it ratchets the blade down toward the PVC pipe, just as it should.
I will update this later today, after I have actually cut some pipe.
I cut 3/4" (slightly over 1" outside diameter) schedule 40 PVC pipe. Again, it took more force than I was anticipating, but it made clean, accurate cuts in the the pipe. If I had to cut PVC pipe all day long, I would want a heavier duty tool. But for my relatively low-volume needs, this is a keeper.
They cut pipe, and they cut up to sizes 1' fairly well, as ive used them.
Thats where it ends.
These do not snap release like many of the other inexpensive cutters on the market, and it requires a manual opening of the blades after each cut. This is time consuming and frustrating while working at a customers house or in a hot and tight environment where mobility is limited.
The main pivot point is a bolt and a nut. How well this tool functions is based on the tightness of this bolt and nut, and when these two begin to loosen during use the tool stops to work almost at all. This prompts you fighting it, and then returning to your tool cart for a screw driver to re-tighten the joint.
If you need a pipe cutter for one specific project at your house, and there are no bosses to report to or deadlines to meet, this is the pipe cutter for you. It is fair to finicky to get my recommendation for professional use. seek another one.
