I purchased one of these last week for a (non-plumbing) PVC project I was working on using 3/4" and 1/2" schedule 40. I'd been using an "old fashioned" pipe cutter, as well as a hacksaw, and decided to check this out. It really is as easy as it seems. Measure, and squeeze. With practice I found that the best way is to place the bottom of the cutter on the floor and to use your body weight to SLOWLY cut through the PVC. This allows you some adjusting as, like with any scissor like tool, there is a tendency for the blade to twist. You also will want to hold the handles further back to get the best leverage. Be careful of your fingertips as you get to the end of the cut. I think you can figure out why, and it's something you won't do more than twice. :) It worked equally well with 3/4" and 1/2 ", but the 1/2" was easily done by hand, not needing the "floor leverage" I mentioned above. There was some slight compression on the 3/4" while cutting, but not bad, and using a sharp blade will prevent that. One other thing to note is that your results will be better if you SLOWLY squeeze the handles together. If you squeeze too hard, or too fast, you may actually fracture the PVC instead of cutting it, resulting in an uneven and possibly unuseable cut. I recommend it, and found that it really sped up my cuts.
Easy to Use, All In One, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
watch out for you finger tips when cutting.
