Best Pipe Cutters Buying Guide
A pipe cutter is a cutting tool for metal pipes, especially used on copper. It is used to make cuts at right angles. Do you know how to choose a pipe cutter? Do you know the technique to use it? In this guide, we give you the keys so that you know which one to choose. Read on!
Cutting pipes is a very common task, be they PVC, aluminum, copper, iron or even plastic. The cut we get with other types of tools is not as perfect or rushed as we will get with the so-called pipe cutter.
It is that this tool, also called plumber pipe cutter, has as its fundamental part the blade: with it is what the cut is made with. The pipe cutters are manufactured by injecting the metal alloy into special molds.
Later some of its parts are painted, melting the paint in the piece so that it adheres. The pipe cutter is essential in tasks of the water and air sector and is widely used to work with air conditioners or gas installations.
Parts of the pipe cutter
We can define four basic parts of the pipe cutter and make sure you choose the cutter with these parts.
- Sliding: advances the cutting blade
- Rollers: to support the pipe we want to cut
- Blade: made of a special material called tool steel. This material stands out for its high carbon content, which is what ensures high hardness.
- Jaw grip: to hold the pipe
Types of pipe cutters
There are 3 main types of pipe cutters, here we tell you a little about each type:
Scissors: it is suitable for soft pipes. As the name implies, it has a scissor shape and one of its leaves constitutes a surface on which the turn that will allow our cut can be made.
Pipe cutter G-shaped: The pipe to be cut is inserted into this G and is thus well secured. It has two rollers on which the blade rotates. The cut is made during this rotation of the pipe through the blade. The mechanism is very simple: some measures can be adjusted to make the blade stick to the pipe.
Slicer cutter: It is used to make cuts in internal threads or outside the pipes. It has a total of three parallel blades that can be moved up. The good thing about this type of pipe cutter is that it allows you to embed it in a lathe and make the cut automatically.
The mechanism of a pipe cutter is very simple and effective: it consists of being able to adjust the pipe to be cut, turn the wheel and in this way actuate the blade, the action can be repeated until the desired cut is achieved. Its drive is completely manual. As a result, we get a clean and straight cut.
The type of pipe cutter you choose will have to do with the function you need to fulfill. Look at the dimensions of the pipes you normally need to cut. This way you may have enough with a tool of few dimensions.
