I have a tubing cutter with a deep blade I bought online, problem with it is seems to distort the roundness of the pipe, it does make clean straight cuts. I saw this tool online that is used to press the pipe into the fitting but I don't know how that would work in the ceiling , probably one of those things you need to use on a bench.
I had a Home Depot one that broke on one side and then cut straight. But it finally crapped out. I tried to break my other one in the same place without the same results. I only use them for up to 1 1/4. Everthing else is cut with a saw saw.
I have the Lenox R2's and they cut great. It's a spendy tool but it works good.
Has anyone else noticed issues of using a pipe cutting on cold PVC? Seems to destroy the blade.
I use the Rigid for up to 1" and it cuts fast and square. Anything bigger and a sawzall with metal blade is the way I go
I've used my DeWalt miter saw on some bigger plumbing jobs. Works great, but I don't think I want to lug it to the basement for a half dozen cuts for a vent and Combustion air piping. The tubing cutter works good, it is a different wheel and is slow. Sawzall or PVC saw and a couple twist of the reamer, deburrer works for me.
Sawzall or a porta band.
I have been using a Lowes Kobalt Brand, and so far they have cut great for the past year. Also on bigger pipe I use a sawzall, but I make sure and use a high tpi blade like a 24.
I have a klien. Works good for me. 1.5" and above I just use a sawzall a cutter would be cool thou. Maybe I'll look into the miluakee 18v
A lennox hack saw and a sharpie can get you pretty far
