What is tube coping?

How do you deal with round tubing?

If you have to, you can cope tubing with a chop saw or band saw, or even with a sawzall. For perfect T-joint copes, we’ve found that you’ll use about 5/8-inch on 1.75-inch tubing. Mark the top and bottom of the tube. Cut small wedges off each side of the tubing at about 45-50 degrees, leaving a flat center.

Is there a way to specify the coping pattern for welding tubes?

If you try to join two 1″ diameter tubes and specify an offset of 1″, then the coping pattern will be completely flat, because the tubes won’t intersect. Not useful. Specifying the tube’s wall thickness makes the cut fit to the inside diameter of the tube, which makes it easier to fit, and makes a nice notch for welding.

What is the pipe pattern development program?

The program will develop patterns for pipe to flat (mitre cutting single pipes) and for single branch to mainline (one pipe to another).

What do you use to cut pipes?

For really big pipe, you might want to use a cutting torch, but most of the time I just use a chop saw to get it close and then an angle grinder to finish it up. Can you give me a stand-alone version of this so I can run it on my laptop out in the shed where there aren’t any internets?
