Hi. This is Dave for Expert Trades, from DCB Plumbing & Heating. Today I want to talk to you about this little contraption. It is a Monument adjustable pipe slice. I found this extremely useful in many, many situations. In one in particular.
To start off, it goes everywhere from your 22 mil all the way down to your ridiculously small. You just spin the wheel clockwise for closed as in everything else. Close her up and then obviously you can have a piece of 8 mil and have the exact same situation. Holds it on nice, easy. Very easy to use.
Actually the 8 mil is the reason I really wanted to do the tutorial with you today, because I'm pretty sure if you've ever worked with small, bendable pipe like 8 mil, 10 mil, possibly even 12 mil, cutting a short piece with your hand to try and get a clean edge, to possibly put a valve on. When you're putting a valve on, obviously the olive is quite tight. You cut it wrong or it's a little bit bent because you've been handling it all the time. Forget all that. This is the tool that will solve every single one of those problems, without a shadow of a doubt.
So very simple. Very, very simple. You just hold it in place, get a little bit closer in. Hold it in place, slide it in, close it up nice and tight. Not too tight. Then just wheel it like you would a normal. Every now and again obviously you do have to tighten her up a little bit, as you're doing it. You know, it does take 30 seconds to do it. Not a problem, and there we go. That's it. Maybe a little bit longer than a normal pipe slice, but I don't even know if you can buy an 8 mil pipe slice.
So just to prove a little bit of the differences, I just cut this one in the van just to cut a short piece off of a big reel that I had. I used me hacksaw, struggled because I was cutting a small piece off, and this is genuine. That is the piece that I cut off. That is the piece that I just cut this second for you guys. When you're trying to get an olive obviously on that rounded shaft there, I mean it's just superb to work with. You don't have to worry about kinking it, you don't have to worry about the burr, you don't have to worry about any of that. It's just plain, simple, easy.
Genuinely guys, ask for Monument. It's just such a superb tool. Everything I've had that's Monument so far has been outstanding. The olive pullers and everything. You know, they're just second to none, to be honest. They're absolutely superb.
So there it is again. The adjustable pipe slice. Just wheel her in, wheel her out. Whatever size of pipe you're looking for. Dead easy, like a normal pipe slice but adjustable. Not big, not too chunky. Ask for Monument. Take care, guys.
