In my experience, Milwaukee power tools = good. Milwaukee hand tools= overpriced, rebranded versions of other companies offerings. Or just not that good, for example their folding utility knife.

Because of this thread, I bit.. I ordered and got the milwaukee close tubing cutter set...... they fokin sucks.. turns way too hard and you spend more time reaming the deep burr.. can't back off if you tracking .... stick with general. . You can drill holes to make it drainable..

I stick to the rigid ones but I admit the close cutting lenox worked really really good and was way faster than the rigid... the one downfall is the lifespan of the cutter and replacing those just doesn't work well so it's basically a throwaway. If you're mainly a service guy, it might be worth it because they are really fast and great for tight spots... if you mix it up in terms of work and tight, close cuts are only here and there, just go with the rigid and take the extra time and effort to cut with that..
