The Model TC-20 Tube Cutter assures a zero dead volume connection. Tubing is held securely in a clamp vise on the vertical swing arm, producing a square cut with a finished end when the swing arm is lowered against the abrasive cutting wheel. No lubricant or cutting fluid is required. The TC-20 produces smooth cuts, dressed without distortions, on 1/16", 1/8", and 1/4" outside diameter tubing with inside diameters as small as 0.008".
The precision-ground dressing tool for 1/16" O.D. tubing is included and is attached directly to the swing arm so it cannot be misplaced or lost. The dressing tool can be ordered and used separately from the tube cut-off machine. The tool for 1/8" and 1/4" is optional.
A dressing tool should be replaced when it gets dull and pushes rather than shaves burrs. The needle insert that deburrs the ID will break or wear out more frequently than the body that deburrs the OD. To replace the dressing tool, follow the Instructions below.
The Terry Tool cuts without deforming the tubing so nuts and ferrules slip on and no additional reaming or deburring is usually required
Operation for Terry Tool Tubing Cutter (1/16" OD Tubing)
*For use with smaller ID tubing, turn the allen head adjusting the screw approximately 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter-clockwise. This allows a deeper cut in thicker wall tubing. For use with larger ID tubing, adjust the allen screw 1/8 to 1/4 turn in the clockwise direction.
