are soldered joints, or not.
I sometimes come across copper pipes that have good non-soldered
sections and some soldered sections. I would like to separate soldered
from non-soldered sections cheaply.
Bandsawing that stuff is 1) wasteful and 2) expensive due to labor
To that end, I want to make a copper pipe chopper that would be used
with my hydraulic press shown here:
So, I want to build something that would be press-powered and cut
copper only (no hard metals).
My question is what is the best design and do I need special steel for
blades or regular steel will suffice?
The diameter should be up to 4 inches capacity.
