The purpose of welding is to create a strong bond between two pieces of metal. Notching and welding tubing of any size has always been a time-consuming process. PipeMaster eliminates all of the guesswork in tube fitting and provides you with the exact shape for a perfect cut every time. PipeMaster tools are available in sizes from 1/2-inch tubing to 12-inch-diameter pipe, and are an accurate and easy to use handtool for your welding toolbox. PipeMaster tools slide over the tube and the pins adjust to the exact shape of the area to be cut. The tool is then slid back far enough to trace the pattern onto the tube, then cut and weld. PipeMaster eliminates re-cutting, grinding, and waste of materials. Metric and SAE sizes are available. For more information, call (360) 668-3291, or check out www.pipemastertools.com.
The new Spoolmate extends Millermatic capabilities to include aluminum welding within easy reach for owners of Milleramatic 140 and Millermatic 180 MIG welders. The Spoolmate 100 Series plugs directly into any of these welders without the need for a separate control box. The Spoolmate 100 Series is designed primarily for the home hobbyist, or whoever might occasionaly use aluminum welding. The Spoolmate 100 Series features a recessed contact tip and a clear spool cover to help reduce the number of burnbacks and ruined contact tips. It also features dual V-knurled drive rolls to ensure consistent feeding of aluminum, which lacks the column strength to reliably feed through a standard MIG gun. It comes standard with a 12-foot gun cable, 2-feet longer than most spool guns, and comes in a convenient carrying case that also holds extra contact tips, nozzle, and wire spool.
