RIDGID Offers Tailpiece Extension Cutter

The P-TEC 2550 tailpiece extension cutter from RIDGID makes a lean, fast and straight cut with one tool on polyethylene, polypropylene and thin-walled PVC plastic used in sink drain extensions and tailpieces. The tool provides an auto-feed cutter for 1 1/2- and 1 1/4-inch outer diameters. The automatic deburring feature eliminates the need for a second tool and produces a fine strand of plastic rather than fuzz around the cut. The automatic beveling feature allows for the assembly of slip joints and kits for immediate joining to other sink drain pieces. The easy-view window ensures straight cuts on a measured and marked pipe. 800/769-7743;
