The AutoCut copper tubing cutter 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 one 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.

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

The AutoCut has 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

Success Stories

Plumbing runs in John Comerford Jr’s blood. His grandfather and father were plumbers. So were two brothers. Now one of his sons is, too. “Our name is on our businesses,” Comerford says. “No one in my family has disgraced it yet – and I’m not going to be the first!” The key to success, he claims, is simple: “don’t do anything you wouldn’t do in your own home – and choose the right tools for the job.” That’s why four generations of Comerford plumbing professionals have trusted tough, reliable drain cleaners from General Pipe Cleaners.

Grease clogged pipes produce problems.  But the right drain cleaning equipment, Chris Fantauzzo contends, turns those problems into profits. “Health inspectors, for instance, want restaurants to clean grease traps regularly – often every six months,” the owner of Mercer Drain Cleaning Service says.  Bar owners, municipal authorities, and homeowners, he adds, also suffer grease, sediment, sand, and ice. And every problem, he says, is a business opportunity. That’s why Fantauzzo’s company near Trenton, NJ added the popular, reliable JM-2900™ gas-powered water jet from General Pipe Cleaners to Mercer’s extensive mix of drain-cleaning and inspection solutions.

“General equipment is durable, and takes a beating,” says Michael Williams of Just Drains LLC. “We use our General tools 24/7 – 365 days a year, and they don’t fail us.” They last, too. “I bought my trusty old Sewermatic™ in 1980 – and it can still handle 30 to 40 root jobs a week!” Williams claims. “It’s got great torque, just like General’s line of Speedrooters®.” General equipment is durable, and takes a beating,” he says. “We use our General tools 24/7 – 365 days a year, and they don’t fail us. General equipment lets us power through tough problems that our competitors walk away from!
