A Simple Way To Make A Saddle Cut On Pipes
Joe Germuga, Rochester, N.Y.: I came up with a simple way to make a saddle cut on pipes using a chop saw. I made a 33 degree angled jig that sits against the backstop of my saw. You place the pipe on the table against the jig and cut off the corner of the pipe. Then rotate the pipe 180 degrees and cut the other side the same way. You get a clean cut that fits nicely against another piece of pipe. It helps to practice a bit on some scrap pipe and to cut slowly because youre cutting on the end of the pipe.
