Pipe Cutters just make sure you don't accidentally cut all the way through.

If you do accidently cut the brass too far shot me a PM. I found a way to fill the small hole created if you cut too much.

Don't buy that one. It is listed at $144. You can get good ones for about $25.

Wow, didn't even notice. I just thought he meant a more general "Is this the kind of tool you use?" to which I'd answer yes. But no, if those are $144, don't get them...ever.

Wherever you can find them is fine. They don't have them that cheap at Ace. Your best cheap bet is Harbor Freight.

Well here is a link to the page of pipe cutters. The first one is 14.99 and it looks exactly the same as the one at homedepot for $145. The link to pipe cutters.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
