Has anyone tried one of these power tubing cutters??
Not sure if it would be a cheap toy or a worthwhile tool.

I would think for big piping jobs where there's a lot of pipe that would work pretty darn slick... but on those jobs, usually you have a lot bigger pipe too.

Looked at one a Lowes more Chinese crap to fill our landfills with. Save you money. Hire an American helper to cut pipe.

The safe money is on it being a cheep POS, but even if it is a good high quality tool, it only cuts 1/2" and 3/4" plumbing pipe.
From the demo video, it looked like copper filings fly off the pipe while it is cutting, so wouldn't be a useful tool for refrigerant piping anyway.
