Thread: Cutting PVC Pipes

  1. #1

    Default Cutting PVC Pipes

    Have a personal project which requires me to cut a foot's length of 100mm PVC pipe into 2 inch rings.
    Anyone happen to know where I can get this done?
    I've been working on them with a junior hacksaw but it's slow going and rather disheartening
    Needs to be fairly accurate though I suppose I can finish with a file or emery paper

    Brought to a neighborhood hardware store this afternoon; lulled by repeated claims of 'No problem' but when the uncle whipped out his large hacksaw I knew I was in big trouble
    Stopped him after he did one ring. Let's just say I had to buy another length of pipe... haha

    Endure. In enduring grow strong.

    Looks very cool, can't imagine how it can seem so effortless! But what I have is 100mm, must be a big tool

    It depends on the size & thickness of the PVC pipe. They have heavy duty ones too.
    Not difficult to use & its cuts pretty fast if you do it right
    Take the shot!

    Go to the bigger serious looking hardware shops. They should have better range than the smaller ones. So you wun have to waste your trip. Better still, go to places where there are lots of them together & the prices will be competitive

    Aye, been googling... seems that there's a lot of hardware shops near my place in Eunos. Either Changi Road heading towards Kembangan or Ubi.
    Probably the latter, supposed to look for a shop to help cut glass in Ubi somewhere too this Sat
    Thanks thanks
