The TECO one revolution tube cutter is designed for hand operation using a ratchet or hand wrench of proper size to fit the drive shank of the tool. The cutter bit operates on an eccentric principle. With the cutter bit in the closed position insert the cutter into the tube to be cut. Apply wrench and turn in a clockwise direction. The tool bit will move out and pierce the tube wall. Continued turning and cut the tube off in one revolution. The cutter is then turned counterclockwise slightly to close in the bit allowing the cutter to be removed from the tube.
The TECO one revolution tube cutter can also be used to puncture the tube before plugging.
This ensures that pressure cannot build up in the tube and cause the plug to become loose or blow out.
