BLACK IRON PIPE: See How a “Tubing Notcher” Helps Shape Pipe Ends for Welding

Black iron pipe is widely available and excellent for metalworking and welding projects. In this week’s video lesson, see how a tubing notcher makes it easy to shape pipe ends so they meet perfectly when joining to other pipes. This lesson comes from my online course MIG Welding Skills for the Home Workshop.  Hundreds of beginners have learned to weld from this course.

In the 4 minute video here, you’ll see:

  • how a simple, expensive tubing notcher cuts perfect curved profiles on the ends of pipes
  • watch how a bi-metal hole saw cuts dozens of pipe ends yet stays sharp
  • learn how cutting oil is an important part of the notching process
  • see how the shape of end profiles on pipe can be changed to suit the project
