New RIDGID (R) 15-SI Tubing Cutter Cuts Stainless Steel Tubing Cleanly and Precisely
ELYRIA, OH - May 2002 - Ridge Tool Company is introducing its RIDGID(R) Model 15-SI stainless steel tubing cutter, featuring the new E1525 cutter wheel. Together, they are designed especially for clean, accurate cutting of stainless steel tubing.
Held to exact tolerances, the new E1525 cutter wheel is highly polished for extended life and to reduce burrs on the stainless steel tubing.
The 15-SI tubing cutter features a larger knob to give the user more control over feedscrew torque. The knob also allows for faster feedscrew advancement because of an increased flywheel effect. Instead of traditional rollers, the new tubing cutter uses six individual bearings that help to decrease drag around the tubing. The bearings also create a smoother, more fluid cut, reducing the number of rotations needed to cut the tubing.
The 15-SI tubing cutter cuts tubing from 3/16" to 1-1/8" in diameter (5mm-28mm). It weighs only 1-1/2 lbs. Like all RIDGID products, the tubing cutter and cutting wheel are backed by a full lifetime warranty against defects in material and workmanship.
