Our small red pipe cutter can cut non-ferrous metal pipes between 3 and 22 mm in diameter.
To cut, gradually tighten the screw as you turn the tool around a pipe again and again. No swarfs (Späne) are generated by this neat little tool!
It only works on soft metals, please use a hacksaw or disc grinder for anything harder than copper.
