  • How to cut pattern to weld round end on pipe??

    Looking for method of making pattern or layout to cut end of pipe into pedal like ends that can be folded in and welded together to form a full radius on end of pipe?

    Think it is called orange peel but search didn't show method of generating the layout or pattern.

    Gary,
    It is called a Bull Nose Pipe Cap.

    Google that and one comes up from the
    pipefitters handbook. It gives dimensions
    and layout for 2" and up. Page 2-64.

    Hope this helps.

        The Pipefitters handbook shows how to do it. There should be one floating around the net somewhere.
        The shortest distance between two points is a circle of infinite diameter.
