  •  not cutting... (0+ / 0-)

    if you see oil gushing from the cut, rather than blade/wire directly on the pipe metal, there is no chance that it is (successfully) cutting.

    my guess is that cutting in 1.5 inches (remember that is the thickness of the pipe wall), the blade had to deal with the pressure of a spurt of oil, which is apparently holding the blade back.
