Rothenberger Plasticut Plastic Pipe Cutter 15mm
Easy to use and cuts great tool, it's makes cutting plastic pipe a lot quicker and easier cutting accurately, the pipe was in quickly and the job was done

Hardly an expert plumber and nearly 20 years since I last used a similar tool, which I borrowed from a neighbour. That had a metal body and was excellent for cutting. Sadly this plastic bodied version is possibly the worst tool I've ever bought. Rather than cutting a clean round groove it spiralled down (or up) the pipe and proved impossible to hold in a consistent position - I think the plastic body just flexed too much. Fortunately I tried (lots of times) on a pipe I hadn't fitted before abandoning and resorting to a hack saw blade (which worked fine). Clearly others have managed but I'd suggest either pay the extra for the metal bodied version or don't bother at all.

excellent pipe cutter
This cutter seems to work very well. I have only done a few cuts with it at the moment but it it leaves a nice neat cut. Will see what happens after a bit more use.

Great little tool
Great little tool, slip it over the pipe and whip it round 360 degrees and a nice clean square cut. Just be sure to keep the pipe as straight was possible during cutting.
