Pipe cutter is crushing the asbestoes cement pipe

Pipe cutter is crushing the wall of the asbestoes cement pipe instead of snapping it, the wall of the wall of the pipe is not "punkey" or soft. the wheels of the chain are touching the pipe evenly ( that we can tell) yet the top of the pipe where the chain hooks to cylinder , is crushing inward. the hydraulic pumped up , does make the pipe "pop" but doesn"t create a even break???

I think you are supposed to rotate the cutter around the pipe. If this is so then use a small amount of pressure and then rotate, repeat until pipe is cut.
The cutters could be blunt in which case they must be replaced.

Is there any asbestos I creda 59055B models


You will need to call the manufacturer. Don't be surprised if it does. Asbestos is still used in many products today. If you are not sure, treat it as if it does contain asbestos. The main concern is not to breath any asbestos particles. This can only happen if the asbestos is disturbed by drilling, scraping, crushing or anything that can make it air borne. So if it is broken, cracked or crumbling, do not use it. Call an asbestos hot line to find out how to dispose of it.

How to Use a Pipe Cutter?

Pipe cutters are really useful tools that can be used in the house to cut pipes that are made from metal or plastic. You could always try using a saw of some kind but pipe cutters will give you a much straighter edge.

Here are some basic instructions to help you successfully use a pipe cutter.

1. Decide exactly where on the pipe you would like to make a cut.
2. Loosen the handle on the pipe cutter and place it around the pipe.
3. Now tighten the cutter until the blade is in contact with the pipe.
4. Turn the pipe cutter a few turns around the pipe and it will score a line into the pipe.
5. Keep turning the pipe cutter around until you've cut the pipe off.
6. In order to create a nice straight edge inside the cut pipe you need to take the bottom blade out of the pipe cutter.
7. Place it into the cut end of the pipe and turn it around a few times until it's nice and smooth.

Stop crushing aluminium pipes.


Prevent crushing or distorting aluminium or thin wall pipe when clamping or using a vice, guide some pipe offcut, sockets or even large flat washers inside pipe to be cut etc. Place cut as close to inner support as possible.27e45d8.jpgc31a74c.jpg

What to do When Your Copper Piping Springs a Leak


One of the greatest improvements to come along for quite a while for the do it yourself market is a push type fitting that fits any CTS (copper tube size) tubing. It does not matter if the piping material is copper, cpvc, poly, pex, or whatever. Just so long as it is standard CTS size. These fittings come in many different forms, configurations, and name brands. A couple of the most common name brands would be Sharkbite, Tektite, Cash-Acme, and Watts. I have tried many of them and they do all work well, so do not be as concerned with the brands as the availability. In others words use whatever you can find quickly, it will probably work just fine.

Copper piping has been a great way to run the water lines in your home. But what do you do when the piping does not keep the water on the inside? The most common way a pipe will leak in copper piping is a “pin-hole” leak. This type of leak can be easily repaired very quickly and with some new innovations on the market today.

To repair a leak what you have to do is to identify the source of the leak. Sometimes it may be a very slow drizzle that can run along the pipe before dripping off of the pipe. Do not assume that where the water is dripping is the spot of the leak. Often times the leak will be a very fine spray. That can make it very difficult to identify exactly where the water is coming from. If you hold up a piece of paper or cardboard, and then watch where and how the water is hitting it, this will help you trace the spray back to the hole in the water pipe.

Another problem can be getting the pipe cut without crushing it. Copper piping that is leaking can often be so thin that it has very little structural integrity. A good sharp tubing cutter will help you to cut through the pipe with out crushing it. You need to be very patient and only crank the cutter closed a quarter turn at a time, so you do not crush the pipe as you cut it. A quarter turn of the knob on the cutter will be enough to slowly cut the pipe and not crush the pipe.

Make sure you have a good clean cut on both ends of the pipe, then carefully push the repair coupling onto one end of the pipe. Next, carefully get the other side of the pipe started into the coupling and then push them together firmly till they are seated into the coupling. This is a very simple process that will take you less time to do, then it will for you to find the fitting in the store and purchase the fitting.

Push repair fittings are a great item to have on hand “just in case”. The next time you go to the hardware or home center, look for them and grab a couple extra for that next time you may need to make that quick repair in your water lines.
