TUBE NOTCHER: How to Shape Steel Pipe Ends for Building Frames

Want to weld up some great projects using black iron pipe? It’s an excellent material for metal fabrication of all kinds. In this week’s video lesson, see how. This lesson comes from my online course MIG Welding Skills for the Home Workshop . . . Hundreds of beginners have learned to weld from this course.

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