Split frames Pipe Cutting Machine EH WACHS
The split frames are named for their ability to split in half at the frame, or “break open” and bolt back together again. This allows them to open and mount around the O.D. of inline piping, or they can be slipped closed over open-ended pipe. All Wachs split frames are built to last a lifetime and engineered to apply precise, consistently square cuts and bevels the first time, every time.
