Coping Templates

Below are video links to and an explanation to see how the coping templates are used. This is done so the cut tubes will easily fit together.

Cut out the template so it looks as shown. Rap the template around the tube and draw the outline on the tube using a black marker. Measure to the other end of the tube the specified distance and wrap the other template at that distance. Draw the outline of this template on the tube.

With a plasma cutter cut the tube on the marked line. Move the tube to the second mark and cut again on the marked line. Caution this will be hot!

After using the plasma cutter you are left with extremely rough ends, these need to be ground and finished.
