If you’re tired of spinning that cutter all the way ’round a pipe, how does a fifth of a turn 5 times sound?  That’s the idea behind Stride’s TC-1050RH Tube Cutter; it’s a standard small tube cutter that works like a ratchet. 

The large blue handle provides extra leverage and helps to make the cut with less hand force.  The ratchet action allows the cutter to spin in the handle to make a full loop around the pipe, but if space is restricted the cutter mechanism can be removed from the handle and used separately like a standard tube cutter.

If days on the worksite or in the shop call for a great deal of tubing to be severed, this might be a wrist saver.

Street pricing starts at $19.

    I’m not sure about saving wrists, it looks like this is intended for close-quarters work, like conduit or plumbing that’s already in the wall. Cool concept, though I’m skeptical about the ratchet’s longevity, as the ratchet action appears to be in the plastic part of the tool, but the lifetime warranty assuages my hesitation. If I had a need, I’d definitely pick one of these up.

    Now that is a really cool idea.

    Like the Idea too, but I need to cut tubing up 2 1/8″ O.D. Who makes that tool?
