Ok, i coped a pipe. The stupid Wen drill press came in with a 1.81" column diameter. I, the king of metal, cant get that size, not even in metric. So i had to make one to make the drill press tall enough tp fit the tube notcher.

Drill press is a Wen 4208. About $80 on ebay
Tube notcher is a KAKA, $40 on ebay
Bit, dewalt bimetal 1 11/16" $10 on ebay

So an 1 1/2" pipe went on the lathe and after 3 hours i turnedvit down from 1.9" od to 1.81...ish od.

Then i put it all together

And there ya have it. Thats a full depth cut, im gonna cut it so there less point and leave a flat area to get a decent fillet weld around point

I use a big ass file to take the points off. It just takes a few strokes. You're right it's a good idea.

Tried a 45. Fell short about an inch. So i had to use the notcher with a hand drill. Then came to the conclusion hand drill works fine. Drill press = waste of time :BH:
