Cutting some 2 1/2" square tubing into 4 inch pieces today and I found that the weld bead inside the tubing prevents it from being a slip fit over the two inch tubing. My pieces are only four inches long so access isn't really an issue. Does anyone have ideas better than a die grinder for taking this bead off? Can I "lay it down" with a torch? Would that take it down enough? I forgot the inside dimension of the tubing, so the bead will obviously make up the difference in the clearance, which is fine with me.
