I have heard a lot of plumbers complain about running a cutter on thin chrome parts. 1&1/2 inch often gives the most trouble when used with sink drains. Here's a great tip. Take a piece of scrap PVC pipe, about the size of the item you are covering with chrome. Use it to keep support inside the tubing and it will not let the chrome oblong when turning the tube cutter. Works for me!
