    Anybody know what a Vic Pipe Groover would be used for. Have one minus the electic motor but I don't understand the application. It's in the way and I need to do something with it.

    does it have a round cutting bit on it it might be a pipe groover used to notch the end if pipe so you can weld circle pipe to circle pipe so there is no gap that is what it sounds like

    It is for cutting/rolling a groove at the end of a pipe to accept a outer o-ring style coupler. Probably of no use unless you a pipe fiter.

    Homer, does it look like it may actually roll form a groove i a pipe for a Victaulic coupling? These are used primarily on industrial fire sprinkler piping.

    That's what it does. Man.........I forgot I put this back here.

    It "rolls" a groove without removing any material from the pipe.

    Yep it's a roll groover.......I work in their engineering lab at night.
    It forms a groove on the pipe to accept Victaulic couplings.

    Racerdave,They are used for much much more than fire sprinklers but that is the most seen application.
