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.
