To help making tube to form straight T or according to the desired angle of T, I have done another online tool to generate paper template. Previously I made this instructable to make angle tube cut.
In the middle of the page, url here under, you will have to enter :
- diameter of main tube in millimeter
- diameter of the inserted tube
- angle in degree of insertion
Before printing the pdf be sure that the document will not be scaled by your computer, you would loose the correct dimensions.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cut Template and Apply
The pattern cut after printing is placed around the tube with a tape.
Step 2: Marking
I mark in black the trace on the tube "receiver" by plating the inserted tube.
And let's go for the cutting, I made a test with a metal tube of 42mm and another of 20mm. My handling of the grinder did not make it possible to make something super clean, hence my illustration with cardboard rolls.
Step 3: Cut
As said above we can make T from tubes of different or equal diameters. For small tubes cutting is difficult but the next time I need a T with PVC pipes I think it will help me out.
Hoping this will be helpfull.
