One of the other sparks in my place has said about a pipe cutter, you know the type that plumbers use? Anybody else tried these?

I normally use a disk cutter (very carfully ofcourse) unless theres no power in the place where im working or its too restricted, then its a hacksaw and stanley knife jobby.

Strange the posts on the other thread, I use a Bladerunner and I get along with it perfectly fine. Seems much easier than a hacksaw for me, used it on 4mm 3c and it was fine. Haven't gone any higher than that yet.

I've used one on 10mm 3 core ok.
Like all things, it's not perfect but as long as you dont try to rush it's easier than a hacksaw and neater.

What size cables do they go up to? My normal size is atleast 70mm 4 core. Ive got to terminate 2 4-core 120mm this week...might invest in one if they go up that big? :cool:

I've had one for while, Its Been quite effective so far, Used probably 10-15 times, Still on the first blade. It does however struggle a little when the cable CSA grows. But otherwise a handy little tool.
