Watch this video to see how to replace a worn cutter wheel on General Pipe Cleaners' AutoCut copper tubing cutter. Dave Dunbar shows how easy it is to replace the cutter wheel to extend the life of your AutoCut.

This is a great tool to have when you don’t have enough swing room to use a full-size tubing cutter. You can cut copper tubing with less than 1 inch of clearance. Or you can easily handle close stub-out work. And it’s quicker than conventional cutters. Just snap it on the tube, close the gate and turn. The cutter wheel automatically tightens as you turn the AutoCut – no knobs to twist. The cutter wheel is spring loaded to provide a constant cutting pressure, so you’ll never accidentally crimp the tubing.

The AutoCut has long-lasting hardened steel cutting wheels that are easy to replace when the time comes. They are available in 1/2-, 3/4- and 1-inch sizes. Keep all three in your toolbox. Watch out though, they’ll spoil you.
