| Common saws cut pretty much anything smaller than a stone. Scissors (also known as Sawzall, the trade name for the Milwaukees tool) can cut wood, even if it is built with nails. It can also cut all common metal shapes: steel, aluminum, copper and cast iron.
Equipped with a metal cutting blade, the multitool offers a quick way to cut copper pipes, galvanized steel and iron pipes. The fine saw blade cuts cleanly, but also with low vibration, unlike a reciprocating saw.
The solution is to create enough empty space in the tube where you need it most, near the nozzle.
- Shut off the water supply.
- Cut the copper pipe with a pipe cutter at the chosen point.
