Anyone have a 4" pipe cutter? If not I'll just go rent one tommorow.

Go to Harbor Freight, Tool king, Tool Zone or ???? and just buy a cheapo. You will want to mark the threads so you only cut 1/4" anyway. I borrowed one last time I did it....next time I'll buy. If you plan on using it more than a couple times buy a Ridgid or similer higher quality. If it will only be used once or twice a year or every other year support Tiwanese slave labor.

I bought a cheapie, and the damn wheel was done in in one cut, and this was on scd40 pipe!

since then, unless it's a supply line, I just cut it and clean with destructive power equipment.

I saved my plumbers arse by having a dual voltage plasma cutter. He cracked a main drain in the ground, and I cut it out so he could sleeve it. Don't ask how dangerous it is to cut a sewer line with plasma...

This is for an axle Green, so I have cruder methods of cutting it but was hoping for a nice clean pipe cutter cut. I hear what you are saying about a cheapo, I think it would be throw away money. I will check the rental store.

By the way, the Guiness Drinker (its black, it must be Guiness) and the welder are way cool :fing:

...and thanks Wes!

....and there's more! Ebay 2 is like what I used before....worked great!

Edit: I just put a bid down on ebay 2. If I win it you can buy it from me for what I paid or just use it!

I have cut axles in my band saw. where are you making the cut? pumpkin side or knuckle side?

If the housing is empty, we just put it on a stand and cut it off, as long as your far enough away from the backing plate or pumpkin.

Ok I am keeping an eye on number 4.

Green - I actually want to cut the axle without cutting the inner sleeve, hence the pipe cutter.
