Super Slice

Cut through plastic tubing quickly and cleanly with the SuperSlice™. A patented V-point blade pierces hard or soft plastic tubing, then slices through to give a clean, easy cut with virtually no tube deformation. Cuts up to one inch (25 mm) diameter.

More Information...

Tube Cutter

Quicker than conventional copper tubing cutters, the AutoCut™ is a great tool to have when you don’t have enough swing room to use a full size tubing cutter. You can cut copper tubing with less than one inch of clearance. Or you can easily handle close stub-out work. Just snap it on the tube, close the gate and turn. The cutter wheel automatically tightens as you turn the AutoCut - no knobs to twist.

More Information...

The ideal tool for copper preparation work, the CopperKey™ cleans copper tubing and fittings in seconds. The patented ratchet handle lets you work in really tight places where there isn't enough swing room to spin the handle. Just two or three inches of clearance are all you need to prep tubing inside and out.

Copper Key
