If you need to cut PVC pipe, there are a few different options for tools. A handheld power saw will work, but it can be difficult to get a clean, straight cut. A miter box and hand saw is a good option for making small cuts in PVC pipe. For larger cuts, you'll need a power saw with a blade designed for cutting PVC. You can also use a ratcheting pipe cutter, which is easy to use and gives you a clean, even cut. Whichever tool you choose, make sure you wear safety goggles and gloves to protect yourself from the sharp edges of the PVC pipe.
