A new tube-cutting attachment cleans copper tubing as it cuts. Eliminating the need for sand or emery cloths, and eliminating the extra step of cleaning tubing after it is cut, the Cut-N-Clean™ attachment is designed for plumbers and hvac professionals who deal with copper tubing, says the company. The attachment works with Ridgid® #15 and #151 tube cutters, and screws into place on the tube cutter. A special cleaning pad removes dirt and oxidation from the copper tubing as the tool rotates around the tubing. The attachment can save up to 1 hr per day for contractors who deal with large quantities of tubing, the manufacturer says.
