Rad Resource: Tube Coping Calculator.

TubeMiterImage

Welded fabrications from tubes are awesome.  I like bicycles, but lots of other stuff gets made this way.  Make your own awesome roll cage for a race car, or a motorcycle chassis, or other stuff that’s not a vehicle, I guess.

I’ve used this website a ton to make tube mitering templates.  Put your sizes in the calculator, print out a pdf, cut out the shape with scissors and trace it onto your tube with a marker. it works great.  With some practice, you can hacksaw and file a tube miter into shape in under 5 minutes.  It’s not as fast as a hole saw, but it’s much less expensive.
