Brass Cutting Problem
Posted 30 September 2006 - 08:21 AM
When I use the pipecutter with brass it like leaves an indent. In most cases teis indent wouldn't matter, but in this case I am having 19/32 slide over 9/16.... Is sawing the second best way to handle this? When I do saw, it comes out uneven, what works best to file/sand it even?

You can use the pipe cutter, but make the cut very s-l-o-w-l-y. Or, cut it at normal speed, and bend the crimp back out afterwards. I use a needlenose pliers that I twist in the end to flare brass tubing. You'd just be stopping before it flares. (Take a look at my pump breech writeup for an example of what I mean).
But really, the best way to avoid a crimp is to not get one in the first place. I'd suggest cutting carefully and sanding if necessary.

Murphy: All right, get your stupid fucking rope.
Do you mean with an integration or what? Because size doesn't have anything to do with performance...-NerfMonkey

If I still get a cramp, then I usually take my file and spin it 'round, pushing it in as I go. This basically sands off the cramp. It'd be easier with a round file... but they're $8. Bastards.
(pun fully intended.... I don't swear)
If that still doesn't work, then I use the method Carbon discussed.

I'll first try the needlenose pliers idea. I should have thought of that..
