Split Frames E.H. Wachs Split Frames are the world’s most versatile and comprehensive line of clamshell style, portable pipe cutting and beveling machine tools on the market today. Designed to cut, bevel, single point, counterbore and face flanges on pipe and tubing ranging from .5 to 120 inches O.D. (DN15-3000) on most wall thicknesses and materials, E.H.Wachs has a split frame to fit most size pipe, tube or vessels. Our 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.
