Rated 5 out of 5Â by IAlz Essential kit for copper pipe
Bought this on the strength of a recommendation on the screwfix forums. At under a tenner I was sceptical, but used it solidly for 5 days straight, very good finish and essential for getting the right finish prior to fitting push-fit fittings (I used wire wool as a final prep after this to get an ever nicer finish). Needs light pressure applied towards the pipe until you will feel the friction between the two surfaces carrying out the deburring work. Cutting edges seem like they are from a hardened/carbon type steel. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Robbo1966 Use this tool all time now
Bizarrely, I don't use this for Plumbing. I am a bicycle mechanic and this tool can be used on all aluminium/steel and (with care!# Carbon fibre tubing #handle bars/seat posts etc). Great tool saw it on many pro mechanic blogs/videos and thought I better get me one. Great price and with care and caution I reckon should serve me well. also most bike tools are always blue so wont have problem locating it!

Great bit of kit, I would've bought one years ago but only heard about it by chance on a plumbers forum on-line. Only used on plastic so far - a bit of a tendency to overuse at first giving a wavy edge but easy enough to get better.
And it's bright red so easy enough to find in a sea of yellow, blue and copper!

Judging fron the other reviewers it probably gives you a nice edge when used on Plastic pipe.
However the description says "for copper pipe" and this does not remove the lip from a cut copper pipe to allow a smooth water flow through a join.
Ended up going back to using a file and my single blade swivel deburrer.
