                                This is the tool needed when working with fosta pex. This workers with drill or by hand and makes the pipe work with the crimp rings. If you have al pex this is needed to terminate.

                                      Very durable tool, can also be used by hand very easily instead of connecting to your drill if you are only making a few connections.Cuts beautifully...

                                            I used this tool to help add a new sink in my basement. I had to join the existing pex-al-pex to store bought pex I purchased. This stripper made the job very easy. I removed the outer layers from the pex-al-pex and used copper crimp rings and fittings with no leaks.

                                                          I am looking to install a standard PEX water line from the box stores from an already installed FostaPex line. I tried to place the cinch ring around the FostaPex however realized they are two different diameters. Will this tool all me to install standard Pex fittings and crimp rings on a FostaPex line? I have Apollo fittings and cinch rings.
