Does anyone know of a tool that cuts 1/2" flex ?? I have one that cuts 3/8" flex, but one would be nice that cuts 1/2" flex in cases where there are wires already in the flex. Any thoughts?? Thanks.. Steve P.S. "other than a hacksaw:)"
Tom, I found the site. Looks like just what I'm looking for. I'm thinking about getting the one that cuts from 1/2" to 1 1/2" flex. Have you ever used one of these? And I noticed it says they can also be used on sealtite flex if done right. Have you ever used it on sealtite? Thanks, Steve.
Man, looks like I know where to spend some money before tax time again. I see some great tools for saving time. The uf stripper looks like it may be worth it, especially on old uf cable. The new I know can be pretty well pulled apart with two sets of pliars, but some of the old stuff is a "bear". Thanks again for information.
The trick for sealtite is to use the tool to make the cut in the metal, then use a knife to cut the rubber/pvc jacket around the sealtite at that point.
For larger sizes, you can USUALLY do the same thing using an angle grinder .... I say 'usually' as I have encountered 4" sealtite that was not made as a spiral wrap, and I had to cut all the way around it.
My one complaint about the roto-split tools: they are gray in color, and far too easy to misplace. I have found it necessary to paint mine the brightest colors I can find.
I've always just used my sawsmost, but put the tool on the ground or a bench, on its back and pushed the flex into the blade, sort of like a bench band saw, as long as your not holding the motor and the work the wobble isnt much, but you cant use this trick if the wires are present.
