Tube Work Information

Did a bit of research on notching, and found this little gem on pirate:

You punch in the joint data (angle, tubing size, etc) and it spits out a little notch template that you can print, wrap around your tube, and trace.


Here is the thread on Pirate about notching with a chop saw:

And a script to help with figuring the angles: http://snip.awardspace.com/


Here are a couple of free tubing bend calculators:

I haven't used either, so I can't comment on how they work.
