RIDGID C-Style Close Quarters Copper Tubing Cutters
RIDGID’s C-Style Close Quarters Copper Tubing Cutters are perfect for cutting tubing in tight spaces, as they cut three sizes with only two tools. The 1/2- and 3/4-inch combined tubing cutter has a quick-change feature that allows easy switching between the two sizes, with the second cutter designed for 1-inch tubing. Each comes with a spring-loaded cutter wheel that provides constant pressure on the tubing and features the X-CEL Wheel Pin for quick wheel replacement without tools. In addition, slots were added around the outside of each cutter for a flathead screwdriver to advance and rotate the tool where access is limited. 800-769-7743;

Water Cannon wet sand blasting kit
The wet sand blasting kit from Water Cannon is designed to remove unwanted surface contamination such as rust, scale, loose paint, barnacles and debris.

The kit quick-connects to the end of a commercial pressure washer wand and works on 3,000 up to 6,000 psi systems. It automatically draws sand through a 26-foot reinforced, lightweight feed hose using an engineered self-venting pickup tube. The venturi siphon technology eliminates the need for an air feed system or other heavy and bulky equipment. 800-333-9274;
