Tube and Pipe Notchers are becoming increasingly popular amongst metal workers, whether you’re in the workplace or a hobbyist. These tools are easy to use and provide accurate cuts to ensure the pipes will fit seamlessly together. Some people may be wary of purchasing one because they prefer to make precision cuts using their own handheld tools. Though it is possible to make such cuts, the results are not always consistent. Replacing ruined pipes can get expensive and often there’s a deadline to consider. We recommend investing in a tube and pipe notcher. The ease and accuracy of the cuts will make your life easier while saving you money and time!
The Best Tools to Get the Job Done
Everyone feels good about and takes pride in a job well done. As a metalworker, this means you want to use the best tools to get the best results. To help you out, we’re recommending two of the best tube and pipe Notchers in the business: the 500 “Racer” and 501 “Industrial”.
These notchers have identical specs with the exception that the 501 “Industrial” is able to perform offset notching up to 1/2 the OD of the material.
Both tube and pipe notchers have a:
- Minimum round tubing capacity of 1/2″ OD
- Maximum round tubing capacity of 2” OD
- Minimum pipe capacity of NPS 1/4
- Maximum pipe capacity of NPS 1-1/2
- Angled notching of up to 60 degrees
You might be thinking, “Okay great, but what do all those numbers mean?” To make it more palpable, the 500 “Racer” is best for those seeking something dependable that can make both straight and angled notches. The 501 “Industrial” is best for those that want all of the “Racer” Notchers’ features but whose projects require offset notching. Offset notching, or side notching, is when you work the side of a tube with a V-notch, which can be used for bending or for tee joints.
