    Check these out.
    I have used bamboo sticks and tape. Use a rubber band first to hold the sticks in place. Put tape around the sticks, remove the rubber band. Cut the tape, then wrap around the piece to cut.

      Some thing about a MOD having to approve it first.

        You didn't say what size pipe but you might try www.pipemastertools.com and see if maybe that could help out. Just an idea

          no pipemasters didnt help for an elbow cope but they do show how to cope for a pipe to pipe on a degree connection thank you tho mine isnt for pipe to pipe connection tho mine is being used as a support under an elbow to support a vertical pipe as far as size i need a range of sizes anywhere from a 1" support to a 1 1/2" elbow to a 12" support to a 24" elbow with a connection like the one shown in the attachment in my first post

          i can buy these support prefab'd however its normally cheaper to make the supports myself i have a formula to figure this cut out if it was to be drawn in cad but i cannt figure it out

            Well I guess the Mods did not like my post and links to Summit racing.

            e.king, my answer to your question.
            Get you some bamboo sticks, enough to lay around the pipe you need to cut and weld.
            Get a rubber band that will fit snug around the same pipe.
            Put the band on the pipe.
            Slide the sticks into the band, enough to go all the around the pipe.
            Now the fun part, hold the pipe with the sticks in the position you will be welding.
            Slide the sticks up to piece you welding to. It will make a template of the angle and curve you will need.
            Very carefully wrap the sticks still on the pipe in tape, good tape, sticky tape.
            Now slide the sticks, tape and all back down your pipe, mark and cut.
            Or buy one of these.

              Pipemasters work fine on elbow supports. Just push it up under the elbow for your pattern and then measure down from the housing for the exact length of the brace. Pipemasters will conform to any surface you put them up to.

                  All you have to do is learn how to do "parallel line development" Then you will be able to make a template for any angle....... not that hard to learn

                    Do it all the time, dummy legs, pipe/90 supports, what ever name you want to hang on it. Piece of cake.

                    If you want to make up your own templates, then I'd suggest buying the "Pipe Fabricators Blue Book" by W.V. Graves,,,,,,,,, not the "Pipe Fitters Blue Book", different animal.

                    It has most of them from 1 1/2" on a 1 1/2" on up to a 24" on a 48" 90 deg. ell. It also has these same dim. if you are working on sch. 10, sch. 20, std wt. and ex. heavy wall, pipe. It has all three styles of "fit", flush with the inside of the 90, flush with the outside of the 90, or on center line, like in your example.

                    It has these same dim. on the straight saddles, 22 1/2 deg, 30 deg., 45 deg, 60 deg. laterals, and the same on all the eccentric saddles, alot of info.

                    The old man that made this book, lived right around the corner from me, interesting story behind this book, but most of the "prima donna's" on this site would call me out on it.

                    Anyway when I make a template off these dim. I also write down the "dim" or formula on the template to lay it out to length so I only have to make one cut, it's all there if you use it right.

                    Hope this helps

                          In a pinch I have used card stock like is used on the back of a notepad. Simply roll it around the pipe size you want coped and tape on a bubble level to get it verticle. then mark part of it and cut then repeat until it has a nice flowing cut that matches. Then wrap it around the piece to be coped and draw around with a marker and cut with a sawzall with a fine tooth blade. I have also used a pipe wrap and they give several good templates that help.

                          http://www.airgas.com/browse/product...rd=pipe%20wrap

                          These are the type I have used. I have 2 of the 4 sizes small and medium as I rather rarely need any bigger.
