    How can I easily and quickly cut 2 inch copper pipework. What specific tool do i need? I've got 15 and 22mm pipe cutters and i doubt theres something similar for this so im hoping theres another type of unit that I haven't thought of yet. Any help would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks BathJobby but its 150m worth of 2 inch pipework needing to cut down to size. A hacksaw will take ages and wont be as neat as a pipeslice type tool.

    Go for a telescopic model. Much faster.
    A tungsten tipped chop saw makes a good job too and no burr left.
