00:08here you see a piece of three inch

00:10tubing laid out on a piece of paper for

00:13a ninety degree miter I'm going to walk

00:15you through how to make a template so

00:17you can lay it out on a piece of pipe or

00:19tubing as shown and transport for

00:36so I'm just going to take a quick

00:38measurement on this piece of tubing to

00:40make sure I have the exact measurements

00:41correctly and now I'm going to draw on

00:44the paper one half of this mitered joint

00:48in this pipe again you can see it's

00:50three inch I'm dropping drawing one half

00:53at the 90 degree miter so now I lay it

00:56out on a piece of paper and we'll

00:58commence to make a template using a

01:00compass I've drawn a half circle on the

01:03bottom of my pipe design to simulate

01:06half of the circle of the pipe now I'm

01:10going to divide that half circle into

01:15I'll start by going right up the middle

01:17then I'm going to continue that line

01:19straight up 90 degrees from the bottom

01:23line straight on up to intersect that

01:25whole drawing now again using my compass

01:31I'm going to divide that half circle

01:34into equal parts again you can see I'm

01:38just doing a bisecting line using my

01:42compass and from there that'll give me a

01:47points to be able to start dividing that

01:49half circle up I like to use a point

01:58five millimeter drawing pencil it gives

02:01you a nice crisp lines nicer you can

02:06keep the cleaner you can keep this whole

02:07thing to better your finished products

02:09going to be now again so now I've got

02:12four equal parts now I'm going to divide

02:13those again by swinging middle bisecting

02:16arcs off of there and they now be able

02:19to vital those and give you eight equal

02:38and now that I've got my bisecting marks

02:41laid out I'm going to finish dividing

02:43that half circle into eight equal parts

02:59now with these eight equal parts I'm

03:01going to get each line in there number 1

03:042 3 4 or 5 etc now using those equal

03:11divided points I'm going to draw a line

03:14straight up from those each one of those

03:16points where 2 intersects the circle

03:17straight up to the top of my miter joint

03:21you can see I'm locating that down there

03:24and using a piece of gridded graph paper

03:28which has all my lines parallel and

03:30perpendicular saves you a lot of work

03:32I'm transferring those lines straight up

03:35a pattern to the top of that mitre cut

03:47but all my lines is transferred up to

03:50that miter joint I'm going to give those

03:52each transfer those numbers up there one

03:54two three four five six seven eight nine

03:56just like the numbers correspond down on

03:59the half circle so here's part of the

04:03early design all completed you can see

04:05I've got a half circle there the numbers

04:08are corresponding the numbers down on

04:10the half circle I've drawn those lines

04:12straight up to start my template

04:16adjacent to my first part of my drawing

04:18I'm going to draw a line probably you

04:21know 10 12 inches long I'm going to

04:24start transferring those measurements of

04:27that segmented segmented circle over

04:30onto this line I've drawn you notice my

04:33compass is set the exact length of each

04:37one of those segments all those segments

04:39are equally divided on that circle each

04:42one is the same length

04:43what I'm doing is replicating if you

04:47took a circle and you divide it into a

04:48bunch of equal parts now I'm replicating

04:52that on a straight line as though if you

04:54took a pipe and cut it down the middle

04:56and roll it out flat that's what I'm

04:59trying to simulate here first time you

05:01see this done it's kind of confusing if

05:03you follow along and just do kind of

05:06just copy-cat what I'm doing here it

05:09will start making a lot more sense to

05:11you so I have actually have 16 equally

05:15divided segments I'm going to make 16

05:18equally divided points on this piece of

05:23paper and I'm going to transfer those

05:25numbers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2

05:301 just like it's done on that piece of

05:33paper if done correctly the length of

05:39these layout marks should equal the

05:42length of the circumference of your pipe

05:45in other words the full distance all the

05:46way around that pipe taking 3 times 3.14

05:50gives me approximately 9 and 3/8 of an

05:53inch quick recap I've taken those one of

05:57those segments from that divided circle

06:00on line this number again corresponds if

06:04this was a complete circle here we go

06:06one two three four five six seven eight

06:08nine eight seven six five four three two

06:11one and then if we took this pipe and we

06:13cut it and we roll it out flat that's

06:16what we'd have right here the same

06:17length here is the circumference of that

06:20pipe so now I need to transfer some

06:25lines I'm going to draw some lines

06:27straight up the run here they don't have

06:31to be exactly right now I'm just going

06:34to run them kind of wild all the way

06:36through I just want to make sure they're

06:41square this line here that's why this

06:44blue fade-out graph paper is fantastic

06:47because I don't need to have a square

06:50handy to draw each line I can just

06:52follow these little lines I know they're

06:54extremely hard to see when you're

07:00viewing this on the You Tube but they're

07:04there if you go down to a drafting store

07:07art supply store and office supply store

07:10they will generally almost always carry

07:16it's called fade-out line a lot of

07:21people are drafting with AutoCAD now

07:23including myself but times I still got

07:26out my pencils and rulers and graph

07:30paper for things like this pipefitter

07:35can go out and buy templates to get a

07:38template for every size you get a need

07:40you could spend hundreds of dollars on

07:42there's a couple of dude programs out

07:45now computer programs you can plug your

07:48angles in and whatnot it'll spit out a

07:50template for you but if you want to do

07:53things old-school you don't have the

07:56computer handy with the program you can

07:59do this okay so I've drawn a bunch of

08:01lines here now I'm going to transfer

08:03these lines this was a piece of pipe I'm

08:07going to start trans transferring these

08:11corresponding lines here

08:18so there's my number one there every

08:22place I have a number one here I'm going

08:25to transfer that link to it and so forth

08:37we're on this number to number three

08:51I had to order this compass online the

08:55local drafting store didn't have it the

08:59local um you know artists supply store

09:03had them but they do there was kind of

09:05small and funky this is a large one very

09:09nice I can go up to about 24 inches

09:14diameter so I'm on number five I've got

09:18a five anyway I go up really large here

09:22it's super accurate super nice one and

09:27I've stuck actual drafting pencil in

09:29here instead of a regular pencil I can

09:31keep a sharper point on it or I can just

09:33push the button and get a longer live

09:45again six and six I'm on my line number

09:53seven a couple ago I've got my pretty

09:57much my template completely made here

10:03okay and number eight and my last point

10:09which is my longest point corresponding

10:12to this template number nine so there

10:19would be the top of my plate now I need

10:22to connect all these lines a little bit

10:40this type of light template is line

10:42development and you can use it for sheet

10:45metal work in other words boots

10:47transitions um in any pipe fitter or

10:52fabricator it's a really handy thing to

10:54know I'll get into some more videos

10:58later on they're a little more

10:59complicated this if you want to do ah

11:02you know saddles for pipe like let's say

11:05you have a 12 inch pipe you want to

11:06bring a six inch saddle into it how to

11:09make those templates this is probably

11:12one of the easier to make but it's the

11:13same type of thing you layout everything

11:16on paper and I'm going to cut this out

11:20right here so I'm still feeling numbers

11:30finally anymore here I will cut out

11:36these now this template can be wrapped

11:41around your pipe and you can trace that

11:49template with a marker pen on your pipe

11:53oftentimes it's very nice to take a

11:56punch and punch a little divot in this

12:03template along it so every so often half

12:05inch or something because when you're

12:06cutting with a torch or plasma cutter

12:08your your mark from your felt pen or

12:12whatever you use and disintegrate but

12:16you like to be able to see your little

12:17punch marks okay again here's a brief

12:24recap of what we've laid out and

12:26everything except I've connected the

12:29lines on my template here and now I'm

12:32going to take my template I'm going to

12:35wrap it around if I'm going to secure it

12:37someplace with a loop piece of tape here

12:39now if everything went right this thing

12:43should meet me right

12:47secure it with a piece of tape see that

12:52it's within probably 1/32 of an inch

12:55there now you can take a felt pin trace

13:02the top of that template and transfer a

13:04mark onto your pipe and you're ready to

13:07cut so I've drawn my line all the way

13:10around my pipe remove my template act

13:16it's nice to take this template and

13:18trace it on some heavier paper and roll

13:22it up put it in your electrode rod

13:25holder carry it around the job site so

13:28there you are connect this up here now I

13:36have a complete mark for a cut as you'll

13:40see there's a 45 look like from the

13:44front and you can again you can use this

13:47layout for a pipe cutting and or sheet

13:49metal or this is tubing happens to be

13:54stainless steel tubing this was heavy

13:56wall pipe then you've really got to pay

13:58attention to what angle you're cutting

14:00making your cut on so the time you're

14:05done you're not doing a whole heck of a

14:08lot of grinding to make it fit perfectly

14:09in this procedure for laying out

14:12templates can be used on any pipe from

14:15one-inch up to 48 inches again obviously

14:18you have to have a long piece of paper

14:20layouts up to 48 inches but anyway you

14:23can use this design for any kind of

14:25wider corner whether 45 or you know a

14:29ninety or twenty-two and a half same
