square tubing tip

removing the weld seam in square tubing

some of you might be like me and like to fabricate stuff... when making telescoping parts from square tubing you have to deal with the inside weld seam on the larger tube... found this on another forum and it works better than trying to hog it out with a file or rotary burr.

Attaching fittings to Nylon fuel line

I heard nightmare stories about attaching fittings to nylon pipe. After search the web for the correct tool I drew the line at spending $100 plus for a tool I may only use 4 or 5 times. I installed the pipe so I could get the correct length measurement. Then took the pipe back out. I keep calling the nylon fuel line pipe because it's measured like pipe (uses OD unlike hose that uses ID)

Then I came up with this. Just used a pipe flaring tool & my bench press. If you don't have a bench press you might be able to use a vice.




Pipe flaring tool and bench press



Attach the flaring tool just below where the fitting will end up after you're done



Press the nylon pipe all the way to the fittings shoulder



Complete Just like the big boys

Easy Peasy. Now install and clamp it to the frame. No more rusted fuel line.
