We've used them in the past, they are a nice product but just like anything else another "tool" to help get the job done. Ultimately when making cuts in tubing and getting a tight joint the final fit will come down to your measurements anyway and the accuracy and style of tool to make the notch.

I get better results with an old paper towel tube, than I do with $250 worth of pipemaster tools.

Try it for one joint! And when your are done, square the end, and use it again.

Rip a roll towel tube (or toilet paper) along the seam. Roll it around the tube diameter you want. Slap a piece of tape to hold the diameter. Start trimming it to fit the joint, and mark a paralllel line on the top of the tube for reference, and on the paper tube. Once the tube fits well, then transfer it to the CM tube. Leave it +.050 or so for final fit.

Problem with Pipemaster is the rods dont conform well with tight angles.

Pretty sad when "garbage" works better than an expensive product.

Wouldn't work for shit on moly. You'd be better off marking the cope with a piece of chalk and cutting it with a torch. Lol. Maybe for a MS cage that you're going to MIG together.

Hell I bought a couple and never even got them out of the tool box. Still new, I just can't seem to change my ways...
