You need to keep adjusting the depth every couple of turns in the SF one. Okay for one off jobs but a PIA doing it all day.

Anyway I'm dubious at the £40 RRP. It's a pass for me. Many sellers on Ebay have it around the £14 mark. I'd rather pay a couple of pence more from elsewhere rather tahn give a guy trying to dupe me into thinking the RRP is £40.

£14 is about right for a decent pipe slicer, definitely not £40. Rothenberger are my go to slicers in my kit, both automatic.

Thanks for the explanation
As a general tool not specific to bahco, these are brilliant. I recently ripped out and installed a whole central heating system and used one of these (draper though) many many times. Being bahco this should be great and it's a very good price too. Hot.

You’d be able to get a similar one cheaper than this. I personally don’t thinks it’s a deal. The £2.99 one from Screwfix will be a ball ache to use if you’ve got a few cuts to do.

I’ve had one of these for years

I'm not too keen on the grip on This one tho. Much prefer it on a kopex
Go for nerrad if you’re professional. Worth every penny
I’ve got the screwfix ones and never had to adjust them :/
what about this one from screwfix which is cheaper at £9.49 and has good reviews

i have never cut a copper pipe before but would be interested to learn. any recommendation for a good value for money cutter for a novice? also do you need a lot of strength to turn the cutter? i am a woman and my hands aren't that strong.

I bought a similar one a couple of years ago from eBay. I use it once in a blue moon and although it is a PIA as someone put it, it has the advantage of tackling 22mm pipe also. Only really worth the extra investment in one of these if it would get regular use.

I just bought a set of two (15mm and 22mm) on ebay for £7.99 which are made the same as kopex and rothenburger, just with no brand name on them.

The brand is just a name added on to the product in the same factory that it was built, and that is what you pay more money for, that name being added on. The ones I have bought are no different to his, minus the brand name.

Bahco is a good brand for plumbing tools. So is momument. nerrad tools are just more superior imo. I am a plumber and i use my nerrad pipe slice on a daily basis, it beats any other pipeslices,hands down. N i own rothenberger/bahco/monument pipe slices too, so speaking from experience. If ur a DIYer or only use pipe slice once in a long time,this deal will be more than enough
Very handy these gadgets, especially for hard to get to pipes that need cutting.
A must for any DIY enthusiast.

i have always been interested to do a plumbing course but you have to pay for them. however, nowadays with youtube videos you can just learn from watching the videos

i don't find plumbing difficult to do as it is pretty simple but the hardest bit is trying to unscrew or remove old fittings which are stuck or stiff over time. i was just thinking what about 22mm pipes and whether you have a cutter for that as well. i think the usual size is 15mm and you only get 22mm for older pipes?

15mm & 22mm pipes are standard & have been since the 70s. You can use a 15mm cutter on old 1/2 inch pipes that look the same size but prior to the 70s they had an imperial measurement of 3/4 inch ie 22mm but it wont "cut it" lol.

Because 1/2 inch & 3/4 inch are internal sizes of the pipe whereas 15mm & 22mm are external measurements. So you would need a 3/4 inch cutter for the old larger pipe. The 15mm cutter does the older 1/2 inch very well because the different in less than a mm.

This is where I find plumbing confusing. The different sizes. So 15mm external measure pipe has 1/2 inch internal measure, and 22mm external has 3/4 inch internal measure?

cheers. it makes perfect sense now as i couldn't see how 15mm equates to 1/2" and 22mm equates to 3/4" as the conversion of 15mm is bigger than 1/2 inch!

15mm for both usually. I've seen 22mm used to pipe around a house (floors) and then 15mm spurs to various places, sinks toilets etc but the end section is pretty much always 15mm.

it seems to be 15mm in general and then every so often you come across 22mm from my limited experience. i thought it may be that 22mm is used for bigger taps, like the bath taps and the 15mm is used for smaller taps, like the basin taps but i am thinking it may be that 22mm are older pipes and 15mm are the newer pipes?

You're right, years ago basin and sink taps were plumbed using 15mm (or 1/2") while bath taps were plumbed using 22mm (3/4") and the reason was that back then there were no combi boilers, most people had a hot water storage tank so bigger pipes gave a faster flow and enabled you to fill the bath quicker.
However, combi boilers heat the water as needed, there is no storage tank, and they mostly have 15mm connectors anyway so there's little advantage in having 22mm pipes to the Bath taps, which is why newer pipework is mostly done in 15mm.

thanks for clearing that up

i prefer the 15mm pipes as they look smaller and neater. i find the 22mm pipes look too big and ugly. the combi boiler has a pump which pumps water around the system. having smaller pipes will help with the water flow i would think as you have a smaller tube to push the water down.

Means it's good quality. Doesn't mean they're the best though in terms of design etc. I've used both the bahco and rothenberger slicers and I've used better tbh.
