Description

It is a single handed plumbing tool that makes copper pipe cutting easy, with just a few simple twists of the wrist

One assumes that copper tube came into existence in the 1920s or 1930s as the British Standard for copper pipes first came along in 1947 as BSS 659. This is really when then demand for inventiveness and neat designs of good professional quality pipe or tube cutters came about. Steel tube of course played its part and most houses constructed in the 1920s had steel heating pipes connecting radiators and this meant that the steel tube had to be cut using adjustable pipe cutters with either one cutting wheel and 2 rollers or 3 wheels. To help prolong the life of the pipe cutters the following is recommended : Replacing the Blades on Autocuts®Patents though have a finite life – the Pipeslice patent ended in 2005 and when the opportunity arose Monument designed and Made in Britain their own version called Monument Autocut. These tools can be made to cut worldwide copper tube sizes using three die castings and machining component parts to accommodate differing sizes of copper pipe. A restricted access ratchet handle too is made to fit the 1715C MON1715 15mm and 1722Y MON1722 22mm and because of the clever outer profile of the restricted access handle also fits the 15PC MON15PC and 22PC MON22PC. The full spectrum of individual sizes, however, goes from 8mm through to 28mm and capable of cutting copper pipe in Export Catalogue. The original concept of the built in ratchet pipe cutter was Canadian, designed by Heinz Hutt and there are now a proliferation of copies of this and other fixed size pipe cutters. So originally the two most popular current designs emanate from Canada and the UK. Mini Autocut® – Launched November 2022 Pipeslice®, Monument Autocuts®, Automatic Copper Pipe Cutters like all tools are put through the mill. All need pipe cutter wheel replacement as well as regular cleaning to stop rollers from seizing. Stopping Slices from Seizing Pipeslice is the original genuine pipe cutting tool and The Corgi award winner for technical innovation

These adjustable designs ran for many years until Mr Garton from Isleworth invented the very ingenious single sized pipe cutter that became the Pipeslice ®. These slicers of Pipslice revolutionised the market and not surprisingly hit Monument’s production of adjustable pipe cutters. Monument successfully sold the Pipeslice product right up until the expiration of the patent, Kopex then refused to supply the product any longer to Monument; dozens of copies of the original Pipeslice design now exist in the marketplace. In the early 1990’s John Collier and a colleague designed and patented single size competing tools based on an entirely different method of cutting compared to the Pipeslice ®. These are the 15PC MON15PC and 22PC MON22PC Automatic Copper Pipe Cutters. #AskForMonument #MadeInBritain Available in a comprehensive range of sizes, Pipeslice provides the ultimate clean cut through copper piping in both accessable and confined spaces Spray internally with something like WD40® then carefully reassemble the pipe cutter and off you go again for hundreds more cuts. Unfortunately once rust is there it’s time to buy a new one #AskForMonument. Replacing the Wheels on Pipe Cutters Pipeslice comes corrosion resistant Electroplate Zinc Plated & Trivalent Passivate Product Specification: The Monument Mini Autocut® for Copper Pipe are an updated version of the popular aluminium machined mini-Autocuts. The new versions are zinc diecast, with an outer shape similar to the existing Monument Autocut® range.The Rothenberger 15mm pipe slice tube cutter is designed to provide a fast and simple one-handed cut of copper piping. These slices provide no deformation of the pipe and provide a clean, professional cut every time. These pipe slices are ideal for use in confined and hard-to-reach areas due to their compact and ergonomic design. Features:

Monument have also developed a semi-automatic pipe cutter the 300M MON300 – this manually adjusts from 8mm to 22mm – once tightened on the pipe the springs start their job and as you rotate the pipe cutter the pipe is automatically cut without additional tightening of the cutter.
