pointlessProbably my fault for not paying attention so this is for people like me!
Don not buy this product if you dont have a monument pipe cutter! I have 8 pipe cutters, some of different makes that have the same wheels so I thourght they were standard. The wheel size is perfect but the axle size is half a mm smaller so it wont fit!
Probable an excelent product otherwise.

Not easy to fit.Before buying this product I suggest you strip your pipe cutter. Problem one. The plastic body must be completely removed. Its secured with four No1 posi screws into the plastic body. Once the cover is off the cutter support pin must be driven out of the body of the tool - you need a very thin punch. Mine was particularly bad as the tool has been lying in the toolbox for some time - the amount of rust was amazing. Cleaned up, guide wheels freed off and reassembled the cutter no longer crushes the pipe to half its diameter - but it might have been easier to just buy a new tool.
