AutoCut Copper Tubing Cutters - Plumbing Tools - General Pipe Cleaners

AutoCut copper tubing cutters from General are available in three diameter sizes - 1/2", 3/4" and 1" models.

AutoCut® copper tubing cutters are 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 one inch of clearance. Or you can easily handle close stub-out work. And it’s quicker than conventional copper tubing 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.

For extra leverage in awkward spaces, you can get a Ratchet Turning Handle. It slides over the AutoCut from either side for maximum ease of operation.

The AutoCut copper tubing cutters have long-lasting hardened steel cutting wheels that are easy to replace when the time comes. Keep all three in your toolbox. Watch out though, they’ll spoil you.


  • Cutter wheel automatically tightens as you turn the AutoCut – no knobs to turn.
  • Cuts copper tubing with less than 1 inch of clearance.
  • Quicker than conventional copper tubing cutters.
  • AutoCut copper tubing cutters are available in 1/2″, 3/4″, and 1” sizes.
  • Ratchet handles available for extra turning leverage.
  • Excellent for stub-out work.
  • The same cutter wheel is used on all sizes of AutoCut copper tubing cutters.

Tight Clearance?
The Ratchet Turning Handle is a real knuckle saver. Just Slide it over the AutoCut for extra turning leverage.

Do stub-out work closer to the wall than conventional pipe cutters because there’s no turning handle to get in your way.
