Anyone use ratcheted PVC cutter for soft tubing?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Was at Lowes and saw one for cutting PVC on clearance, which I thought would be good for some DIY projects around the house, compared to the hacksaw. Anyone use it to cut soft tubing? I think it would work as well as the ones that are meant to cut soft tubing, but it can do heavier as well?

Yes, I use it. They work just fine for cutting the soft tube.

That's not ratcheted, and that's the normal tool people usually suggest for cutting both PETG and soft tubing.

This is ratcheted:

When/if I do PETG, I already have a pipe cutter that I use for copper. It is nice when you already have tools to do something smile.gif

That is almost identical to the cutter that I got from harbor freight. It works fine.

Yeah, I use the Harbor Freight one as well. That was just one I knew I could find easily.

I too use a ratcheting cutter. I find the ratchet feature is really nice, as the first click usually starts to snug the tubing in place before you ratchet it the rest of the way down. It takes a little more hand movement, but you get a very nice clean cut that's repeatable.
