i wouldnt pay that for it.
it looks like it will work, but im not sure it would be any faster. i mean how long does it take to ream a small pipe.

the one for bigger pipe might be alright though.

An old-fashioned Klein reamer is a whole lot lighter and compact than a cordless with something that unweildy hanging out the business end of it.

Magnet to reduce filings in the pipe? Fine, but how do you clean it? and how often?

I sometimes keep a mostly worn out unibit in a drill when I have a lot of pipe to cut and debur. I don't worry too much about deburring the O.D. as long as it goes in the fitting.

Thanks for the feed back guys. Yea, I've heard a lot of those responses. Most electricians are skeptical of it at first, then I let them use it for a week.
So far, 90 % of the testers like it,
50% buy one, The other 50% just want to keep the one I gave them to test.

I'll try one.

I'm on a very big commercial job right now and all I do is run pipe all day long, mostly 3/4''. With the Ideal hand reamer you can pull out the reamer end and chuck it in a drill, that's what I do. I'd love to try your reamer and compare it.

I've got a lot of guys I work with and if you send me one to try I'll pass it around and get their feedback too. Let me know.

Default big comm job

OK, but you only get one big job each.
That is where it shines, on Big comm jobs, then it really shines.. you get used to it quick then you start to see how versatile it is, No packing & changing tools, (just tips) Way faster, No putting away the klien and grabing the drill to mount the pipe, its the same tool, it eliminates tools & steps, Hexagonal drive allows the body to slip right off the magnetic tip holder shank, Its smaller in your toolbox than the old Klien. No wrist wrenching, Tuff, in 2 years of testing we never broke or destroyed a blade. The future is scary...way more high tech stuff coming..
I hate change... Thats why i always challenge it.

I looked at your site twice. I think I would like to try it. Will it fit in a 1/4" quick connect?

Thanks for the feed back,
A small pipe? One? not much time difference. But if you got a pipe rack or stubs coming out of the slab, and lots of them, You would be amazed at the time difference. Remember, you are not packing several screwdrivers Just a few tips. You also do not have to change tools, As soon as you ream the pipes(1/2",3/4" & 1") you can assemble, same tool, also screw your straps down & tighten fittings.
Are Screw guns faster than wrists?
Tool slips on/off hexagonal Magnetic tip holder shank.no tools required. More versatile, just change tips if needed.
No wrist wrenching. no tool bags of screwdrivers hanging off your hip.
This tool is designed for commercial use, it shreds conduit clean, quick, in & out, ensuring a better ground also. Blade is hardened to Rockwell +60

Fair warning... if the guys who have indicated that they want to test one don't get one, this thread and any signs of anything you ever posted will evaporate.

Yes it will fit in a quick connect, It will also accept any 1/4' hex shank bits/tips.

Thanks for the input.
I clean it with a swipe of a cloth or glove.
On a commercial job (rough in) I use a cordless all day, for drilling, screwing boxes, tightening fittings, etc. This tool allows constant assembly with out changing tools. It is there when you need it, & rarely interferes with other work, or better yet, slips off if you need more clearance. More versatile, accepts any 1/4" hex tip. (less stuff hanging off your hips.)
Also, in 2 years of testing we have never broke or wore out a blade.
All tools can be dangerous. Use with care.

Ok I do want to try it then. I am not in comercial work, but being able to ream and strap the pipe with the same drill does sound usefull.

Your point is well taken, I only send out 1 tester at a time for 30 days, first come, first served. Gilbequick is first. then 5150.
That is enough testers for now,
Thank you to everyone who responded.
Minuteman I sent your part yesterday.

I think he is, and with your setup that shouldn't be a problem at all.
