I know, I know, you are still recovering from yesterdays news about the Milwaukee organizers.  Well keep your wallets out as Milwaukee tool is bringing out some new copper cutters.  A couple months ago I had to redo my kitchen plumbing and these would have come in really handy. However I had to settle for my Menards cheap brand that ended up breaking on me.  I am not saying I am looking forward to hanging out under a sink in the near future, but it is nice to know that Milwaukee has my back with their new copper cutting tools.

I haven’t had a chance to use them, but by the looks of them, plus knowing how Milwaukee Tool operates, I am sure these are top quality cutters.  While the cutting wheel is the real magic behind these tools, a good feel and toughness is also an important aspect of these new copper cutters.  According to Milwaukee Tool, these will be the most durable swing cutters on the market.  Current mini swing cutters available on the market suffer from two common premature failures: Broken adjustment mechanisms and corrosion. Since Milwaukee is all about solving problems in the current market place, you bet they have a solution for these two problems.  Milwaukee designed its new Mini Copper Tubing Cutters with a proprietary adjustment mechanism that delivers 5X longer life. In addition, the cutters feature chrome rollers for rust protection when exposed to water. Both mini tubing cutters also feature an easy-grip knob to provide better leverage during adjustment.

The Milwaukee Constant Swing Copper Tubing Cutter was designed with four rust-resistant chrome rollers that best stabilize the material in order to deliver straighter, cleaner cuts. We all know how important a clean cut is when dealing with copper.  A smooth-adjustment knob helps users make easier adjustments throughout the job and also allows for storage of an extra cutting wheel. An on-board reamer allows easy deburring for improved productivity.

A Reaming Pen is also available for easy deburring of copper tubing and PVC. The tool is constructed with an all-metal design for durability. The blade is heat treated and black oxide coated for extended life. A slide resistant clip allows easy storage in the users pocket or tool bag for quick access.
