Ideal Twist-a-Nut conduit deburring tool
By Anthony Capkun
Ideal says cutting thin-wall electrical conduit with a hacksaw leaves sharp, unfinished edges that can result in poor couplings, damaged wires and even injuries to the electrician. Its Twist-a-Nut conduit deburring tool safely deburrs 1/2-in., 3/4-in. and 1-in. thin-wall conduit tubing by reaming and smoothing both the inside and outside edges. The head of the tool can be rotated manually with its supplied cushioned grip, or it can be removed and installed in any standard drill or cordless screwdriver for added torque. In addition, there’s a universal Wire-Nut wrench moulded into the grip to tighten and loosen twist-on wire connectors. The tool also features a hooded tip to tighten EMT fitting set screws without slipping.
