Wachs SDSF Split Frame Cutting Machines

The Wachs SDSF Small Diameter Split Frames are the smallest and most compact member of the Wachs split frame family of pipe cutters, and are designed for cutting, beveling and counterboring pipe and tubing from .5 inch – 6 inch O.D. (DN15-150). Like all the split frame, clamshell style machines the SDSF Small Diameter Split Frame is designed to “split” in half to fit over inline pipe, or can be slipped closed over open ended pipe. Six models are available in 1 inch (25.4mm) increments, with additional sizes available by special order.
