Hello all I am currently prototyping a new project for a customer. One part is a length of 1"dia .065 alum tubing with both ends cut to 45 degrees. I managed to keep both ends parallel by duct taping a second piece of tubing I had notched with a 1" cutter, so it fit nicely against the first tube. I cut the first end with my chop saw, then flipped it over and cut the other end. This kept the ends close enough for welding the part. The second part (2 of them) I found a simpiler method, I drill the holes required at the far ends of the tubing, taped the tubes together with a pin though the holes to align them. I then cut the chamfer, flipping it over to do the second one. If I had multiple parts of the first I could have used this method as well. Short of using a mill, a vise and a large chamfer mill, can anyone thing of some other ways of doing these cuts??
