    You were dead on, JW.

    It only worked as advertised if you were cutting a long piece and scored it just perfectly. That was only about 25% of the cuts. I should have taken the $40.00 and invested it in a nicer hacksaw.

    Now, it'll just be a spare copper tubing cutter.

    On the bright side, I love my new Ideal EMT bender.

    Hack...saw???

    Oh yeah...I remember those things.

    I keep them to use in a pinch but generally cut everything with a sawsall these days.

    A tubing cutter woun't leave a ridge if you don't cutt all the way thru. Go about 2/3 thru and snap it of. Sawzall is much quicker though.
