I have done a bunch of pipe fence 2" sch40 gas pipe. I build a jig that fits in my hydraulic press, as well as an arbor adaptor and I just cut it square and squash the pipe about 2" back from the cut until it is about 1 1/8" thick. I clamp a c-clamp on the post (4" pipe) sideways to catch one end, tack the other, tack the first then weld all round in a single pass with 1/8" 6010. It looks good, is uniform and is easier than a fish mouth. The horses have not said one bad word to me about not doing the fishmouths either
No announcement yet.
