Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tool Broken on First Use I purchased this tool online and had just received it. Had a 1" older stainless steel pipe to cut. Made a score in the pipe and about 1/2 of the way through the cutting, a very important piece on the tool snapped and broke. I was unable to use it at that point and ended up completing the cut with a hacksaw. To me, it was clearly faulty manufacturing. There is nothing about using this on an older pipe so this should not have happened. I plan to return it for either a replacement or my money back, but the tool did not function to my satisfaction.

Why doesn’t it work follow directions but won’t even break the surface of a 3/8 inch copper pipe

Asked by: Frustrating
Miguel, I think you are right because I noticed the package was already opened when I bought it at Lowe’s

What is the minimum clearance radius when making a cut in close quarters?

Asked by: BobM
The clearance radius varies with pipe diameter with a smaller pipe requiring slightly more clearance. For the 1/4" minimum pipe diameter the clearance radius is 1 3/4" and for the 1 1/8" maximum pipe diameter the clearance radius is 1 5/8".

Hi, Can you kindly provide some instructions for how to remove and replace the blade for close quarters tube cutter 40617? I feel like such an idiot not being able to figure it out!

Asked by: dull
Turn a medium wide blade screwdriver sideways put it against the opening of the eclip on the blade retention shaft pop the eclip backwards. Remove the rod change the blade reinstallation is the reverse.

Will this cut chrome plated copper?

Asked by: Rich
Yes, I would judge that you can cut chrome-plated copper. There is going to be increased wear but the soft underlying tubing will be crushed causing the chrome to break perhaps rather than be cut.
