    I bought this pipe cutter to cut 2-3/8" Steel pipe used for a chain link fence. I was skeptical at first, but it performed flawlessly cutting 16 gauge steel pipe. I used the default copper cutting wheel that came on the unit. The spring release is a great feature. The wheel tracked very well and when I rotated around the pipe it fell right back into the channel it had started.

    I believe the key is to not turn the knob in too much at the start. Take your time and don''t over tighten the knob. Took about 5 minutes to cut through the steel pipe. Left a nice, clean cut all the way around. There were some burrs on the inside but that''s easy to fix.

    I cut 11 steel pipes and the blade wheel looks brand new still. No dings or nicks in the blade at all. I''m confident this will give me years of good use.

    After contemplating a multitude of post cutting options, all of which would send sparks into a very dry mountain area, I decided to order this product to cut the steel chain link fence posts. I am so happy I spent the money on this tool. It cuts amazingly well even with the blade that comes on the tool. I have the replacement blade for steel posts ordered but am getting great results with the stock one. The cut surface is very clean too. I highly recommend this tool especially if you live in fire prone area such as us. Great product and worth the price !!!

    I had some 2 inch diameter emt tubing I needed to cut down, and I asked my internet friends and the top responses was this manual tube cutter, and not some sort of power tool. At 60 ish dollars I could have gotten a cheap power tool. Also I didn''t believe a manual tool whose sole power was through tightening a screw and scoring would cut through this thick metal. Pvc and copper, sure. But I gave it a go, and color me surprised, it worked.

    This Ridgid 31642 Model 152 tubing cutter was indispensable to me as I had to replace a few sections of top rail on my badly damaged chain link fence; I had to work alone, and I could not have done it without this tool. It cut through the damaged sections of 1 3/8 inch galvanized top rail very quickly, and though it is a very powerful cutting tool, it is compact enough so that I could "spin" it around the rails without having to disconnect them completely from the fence fabric thereby enabling me to install the new top rails and then re-connect the fabric to the new rails. I also have the super heavy duty Ridgid 32820 Model 2-A I/8 to 2 inch pipe cutter, but it was too big and heavy for me to try to use alone, although it is an awesome tool .

    I needed to cut through a galvanized steel pipe used for chain link fencing. The pipe was 23/8 inches in diameter and about 1.5 mm thick as measured by my digital caliper. This cut through this pipe like a champ--no problems. I made sure to not to tighten it too much for each turn around the pipe. If you take it slow, you will not have problems even though this tool does not mention cutting through steel in the description. This is a very sturdy tool--it is a great addition to my tool box.

    If you’re checking this review out, just know that this thing is ‘ol reliable’. If you’re just starting out plumbing, or fixing things around your house, you’re going to eventually need this, even just for brass tubing under a sink. It’s called a tubing cutter, it cuts multiple types of materials so I know there are different trades that use this tool as well.

    The RIGID 152 comes with a wheel that only cuts plastic. So far as I have been able to determine, there is no cutting wheel available for this tool that will cut anything harder than copper.
