Wheeler Manufacturing was born with the invention of the chain-type snap cutter for cast iron and clay tile pipes. In 1957, it was revolutionary. Today, it is considered a must-have tool for all pipe professionals.
This innovative product was followed by several other industry firsts, such as cutters for glass tube, power bevelers for PVC pipes, power torque wrenches for soil pipe couplings, shut off tools for copper and poly pipes, sewer tapping machines, hydraulic pipe cutters, and more. Today, Wheeler-Rex offers a complete line of pipe tools for the piping professional.
In 1988, Wheeler became part of the Rex Industries family. Rex Industries produces the highest quality and largest variety of pipe threading machines in the world. Rex has developed advanced threader features such as oiling through the die head, auto-open die heads, notch-type quick adjustments, and ball detent die location. The well-known Rex quality is backed up by the best warranty in the business.
