How to use a soil and drain tube cutter
Step 1 - Make sure pipe is not in use
Make sure the soil or drain pipe you wish to cut is not currently in use if working on an existing piping system.
Step 2 - Set up tool
Open out the legs so that the tool is stood up on its own and is relatively stable.
Step 3 - Steady tool
Place your feet on either side of the foot stand to keep the tool steady.
Step 4 - Insert pipe
Insert the pipe so that it is in the correct position to be cut. To do this, make sure that where you wish the pipe to be cut is in line with the blade.
Step 5 - Make cut
Make the cut by turning the handle around the pipe in a clockwise motion.
Step 6 - Tighten blade
Turn the ball of the handle clockwise one turn after every full rotation around the pipe, to tighten the blade and keep the cut going.
Step 7- Remove pipe
Once the cut is complete, turn the ball handle anti-clockwise to retract the blade. Then remove the pipe from the tool.
