The RIDGID PTEC Cutter is the first cutter of its kind that provides the hassle-free ability to execute a clean, fast, and straight cut on thin-wall plastic tube. This versatile cutter can be used on Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), and Thin-Walled PVC tubes.

Features

  • Clean, Automatic Deburring - The cut produced by this cutter results in only a fine strand of plastic, as opposed to the fuzz created around the cut of a hacksaw. No need for a second tool to deburr, this cutter automatically deburrs in parallel to cutting action.
  • Automatic Beveling - Allows for immediate, easy joining to other sink drain pieces.
  • Open Bore Design - Allows cutting of double-flanged plastic drain pipe.
  • PTEC 3000 - Single-flanged 1 1/4"; Double-flanged 1 1/2"
  • PTEC 5000 - Double-flanged 50mm

I have the original PTEC 3000 tool that does not have an open end for the 1 and 1/2" pipe. Frequently the cutter will not cut all the way through thin wall plastic tubing no matter how many revolutions I make. Was the design change made to correct this problem or is the cutter dull? If so, am I entitled to a free replacement tool under your lifetime warranty? I am not a professional plumber, and this tool is infrequently used in my part time handyman business. The tool was purchased from the Home Depot. Thanks
