    After changing numerous manifolds and fittings because of lack of connection possibilities, I decided to look into the Rambit. I learned about it here.

    What a fantastic little tool. It will save me countless hours every year as we replumb from the "closest" fitting instead of changing the whole shebang

    I also have used rambits. Good tool except for the actual cutting disc turning on the shaft. Once it loses its key position ya just hafta tighten the nut as far as possible and use it best ya can.

    I have used it on numerous occasions but have found that a thick bodied glue works well on it to seal a new connections as the rambit leaves a rough fitting.

    Someone needs to produce a cast version like a woodworkers forstner bit.

    Hmm... your "cheap pool products" link didn't show a 1" rambit, Wet Boots. Nevertheless, you can get them from other places.

    But man oh man they sure want a pretty good penny for these things, don't they!

    If you google "rambit pvc" (without the quotes) a number of sites will show up. That one had them right up top.

    I just bought one from the first place I found on the internet under "rambit tool" search... how long should I expect it to last? I paid $32 I think
