I saw this cutter at the supplier before Covid, I’m pretty sure the price was over $200 cdn...
I’d like to try it before I’d buy it, esp at that price.

Works great, you won't regret buying one.



The only thing you'll regret is losing it.


It's much easier to grip than the tiny knob on most mini cutters so in joist bays where you can't swing your regular pipe cutter it's a hand/wrist saver.





I bought it specifically for cutting trap piping without having to move the pedestal on pedestal sinks. It saved me from moving a couple the short time I had it. It can be a life saver as in really nice houses moving a pedestal sink can mean chipping grout from the bottom edge of the pedestal and cutting the painted silicone where the back edge of the sink meets the walls. Both of which look like ass afterwards. That and moving the whole sink usually means changing the supply lines and a couple other things that otherwise wouldn't have leaked. If their stuff isn't chrome than it's really a pita.

So this will cut the 1.25” chrome tail piece/fixture drain-!while it is still concealed by the pedestal ???
Will it cut 1/2” copper?

Yes, it will cut pretty much anything you need it to.

The largest it can cut is 2" pvc, it does this easily for a displacement style of cutter. The smallest I cut was 3/8" OD copper but I think it would do 5/16" or maybe even 1/4", not that you need it to.



I found that half the time it would save me from moving the pedestal.



I bought it specifically for those times when the 1-1/4" tail piece is cracked at only the end and I would have had to pull the pedestal to get a wrench on it to unscrew it from the pop-up assembly.


I also used it for cutting the J-arm off the trap so I could loosen the nut at the wall without tweaking the whole setup, this is handy for brass nuts on galv stub outs that often require a pipe wrench or large channellocks.

The second picture shows 1/2" ID copper pipe.

Used it twice in one day. It's in contention to be a personal favorite.

Better off to just use an oscillating tool with a metal bit on it,works like a charm

I couldn't take it anymore, I just ordered a replacement. 120$ on toolfetch with free shipping.




As for using an oscillating tool, this is much smaller and lighter to carry and doesn't sound like throwing a metal pipe into a wood chipper inside of an echoing bathroom. It also doesn't rattle all the old, thin, chrome tube.

I forgot to post this picture way back and just happened to find it. This picture emphasizes the tightest space it can fit in.


So glad I bought another one.

That's not a tight space compared to other mini's. Nice looking cutter though.

It does really open up though.
