After conducting the two tests above, the quality of Elliott’s One-Rev clearly surpassed that of other manufacturers. The initial test on ¾” x 12BWG (0.109”) carbon steel tubes, was able to create more than 110 punctures using the same blade. The blade still remained intact after the conclusion of the trial (See Picture, Page 1). Additionally, the operator reported a 20% reduction in the amount of force required to operate the One-Rev, making it easier for the operator to utilize. Overall, Elliott’s One-Rev was able to puncture significantly more tubes with less blade wear and force when compared to alternative one-revolution cutters.
The second test was conducted using 1” x 12BWG (.109”) 2205 duplex. Elliott’s One-Rev was able to create multiple punctures within the tube material, whereas other one-revolution style cutters struggle to puncture the tube at all. One of the operators commented, “after already getting two times the number of punctures out of Elliott Tool’s bit than a competing product, I inspected your bit and was really surprised that it still looked almost brand new.” Overall, this test was able to demonstrate the strength and quality of Elliott’s One-Rev blade design.
When comparing Elliott’s One-Rev to that of other manufacturers, Elliott’s cutter was able to create over 100 punctures while leading competitors only produced 4. As a result, Elliott’s One-Rev has the power to produce over 24X more tube punctures per blade when compared to other brands. On a job requiring 100 punctures, that’s an approximate savings of over $1,100 in blades. Overall, Elliott’s improved One-Rev cutter design performs significantly higher than that of other manufacturers.
