I was asking some of the other techs in the company if they deburred, some actually asked "what for?"

If you're very careful with your tubing cutter, you might be able to get away without deburring. The main reasons for deburring are to make a nice smooth flare surface and to remove any loose pieces of copper so they don't get into the system.

I'm well aware, some techs don't seem to get it though...

I always only cut through my tube 3/4 of the way ,,, I was trained this way in 1st year & it has stuck ever since...

This way your cutting wheel is not forcing the burr inside the tubing ,, I can then just brake my tube off....

I still de-burr to get a nice edge , but I do believe it takes less off the wall too...

I would think you take a chance on flattening the pipe.

You get to know when it's easy to snap ,,, most times I pull up short & can't snap it ,,,, so a bit more cutting & it snaps like a hot knife through butter...
