Wheeler-Rex 16150 Reviews
Rated 3 out of
Design IssuePro: replaceable carbide cutting blades
Con: Guide is too long and no guide is present behind the cutting blades. This means that while the tool may work OK in straight fittings or the side fitting of TEEs, it does not work in short elbows. The guide protrudes too far out and runs into the inner wall of short elbows long before the old PVC pipe has been adequately, much less fully removed.
In this respect, the Wheeler-Rex "fitting saver" tool design, for smaller size pipe, works much better. However, even the nose on the fitting saver tools is about 1/8" too long to work optimally for many short elbows.
As with the fitting saver tools, the tip guide is a little too small for the ID of schedule 40 PVC pipe and has to be either turned down for schedule 80 pipe or shimmed up for schedule 20 PVC pipe.
