Plumbing made easier
Many homeowners realize the advantage to having some plumbing experience. Knowing your way around a pipe can save money and headoff emergency calls when something goes awry. Having tools on hand that make the job easier can be a doublebonus.
Now do-it-yourself plumbers can forget banged knuckles and wasted effort cutting copper tubing in really cramped areas. An innovative ratchet-action tool called AutoCutTM quickly and cleanly slices pipe in snug spots — even in sites with less than one inch of wall clearance.
The lightweight, compact device comfortably fits in the palm of a hand. Just snap it onto the tube, close the gate and turn. The hardened steel cutting wheel automatically tightens with each twist — for true “one-hand” operation. And because the spring-loaded cutting wheel provides constant pressure, crimp damage is also eliminated.
Ideal for both professional plumbers and “ weekend warriors,” the breakthrough design from General Pipe Cleaners completely eliminates the excessive swing room, awkward adjusting knobs and clumsy maneuvering of bulky, old-fashioned copper-tube cutters.
Available in 1/ 2- inch, 3/4-inch and 1-inch models, AutoCut sports a rugged casing for enhanced durability. And in spots with restricted room around pipes for normal hand operation, simply use the optional ratchet turning handle for extra leverage.
The AutoCut is available at area hardware stores and home centers. For more information, consumers can visit www.drainbrain.com.
