How to use a plastic conduit pipe and hose cutter
Step 1 - Measure
To ensure that your cut is accurate, it is advisable to measure where you want to make the cut then mark it onto the pipe or hose before you begin.
Step 2 - Position pipe
Place the hose or pipe into the anvil jaw, and lineup the blade with where you want to make the cut.
Step 3 - Make the cut
Squeeze the handles together, in the same way scissors or shears are used. The blade will close against the anvil jaw and the pipe or hose should be neatly cut.
If necessary you can rotate the cutter as you cut, this should help keep a clean cut in thicker or more rigid materials.
Step 4 - Store safely
Once the cutters have been used they should be locked with the locking lever, then they can be stored safely.
