    JUMBO Ratcheting PVC Pipe Cutter - 2 1/2"

    Hello:

    for SF Bay folks only. getting desperate so I need some help. I found one on amazon.com but it takes 3-5 weeks for delivery. I need it tomorrow. if you know any store in the south bay that might carry this jumbo cutter, please let know. I would like to drive there and pick one up right away. I already check Home Depot and OSH around my area but no luck.

    Try Fastenal. Fastenal is a company similar to Grainger. They are a nationwide company, so there should be one within driving distance. My local Fastenal carries a tool line from BOLD, INC. The specific line of tools is called Black Rhino and they have the tool you are looking for. HOWEVER, not all of the Fastenal stores stock the Black Rhino line.

    I'll cross my fingers that your local Fastenal is as cool as mine!

    Good Luck,

    Chop Saw........

    If we are doing a lot of cutting with larger pipe 1 1/2 & larger we usually set up a portable banquet table and a 10" chop saw. Makes life really sweet!

    The larger ratchet cutters sometimes cut a bit crooked and will need to be sharpened by the end of the day if you are making a pile of cuts..............But I sure like my pair. They come in handy more often than not.

    Peace,

    The Pond Digger

    I do use the table saw to cut 1.5" or larger pipes but sometimes i need to trim those that a bit too long and the jumbo cutter is much more convenience. I do agree that the jumbo cutter sometimes cut a bit crooked.

    btw, there is Fastenal store near my home. Will check it out tomorrow. thanks!!

    Hi Nguyen4,

    Thanks for the offer. I am ok. I just need to trim a couple cuts. worst case, I will use the hand saw.

    Ewing Irrigation will have one. See if one is close to you. There are two in Fremont. Great for quality fittings too.
