I've mistakenly bought a Rothenberg Automatic Pipe cutter for copper pipe.
Its the type that is circular and you twist it around the pipe to make a cut.

Could I use the cutter to cut a 22mm Speedfit plastic pipe, would it cause me any problems.

I read the review of the Pipe cutter and it said it was a very good item and only when I picked it up I realised its for copper pipe.

Thanks for any info you can give me.

+1 Also make sure you get a clean cut on the plastic pipe and ensure that there are no 'nicks' or scratches in the plastic on the end that you push into the fitting :thumbright:
