Pipe laying taper tool. Recommended

Recommended Posts

Morning I’ve been using this tool to put the taper back on the ends of any cut drainage pipe, works a treat. 

Little bit costly but has been used in anger all week and paid for itself already. 4ABDB74A-6E05-48FE-9482-6B5D646A112C.thumb.jpeg.b3aa931ad0608225365cf2ab2a4942fa.jpeg

A lot quicker than doing it by hand using a rasp which is how I did all mine. Wish I'd known they existed a few years ago.

I do mine with the cordless angle grinder,. That's a prettier result though!

Yes I used an angle grinder with a flap wheel but that’s a lot neater, what’s the cost and where did you source it!

I wish I'd bought one before I started doing my pipework - found it a horrible job with a rasp. No point now as I've only got the rainwater pipes to do (although there's quite a bit). 

 

The guys doing the access drive used their petrol cutter, left it on the floor and turned the pipe against the blade - not the safest move I guess and stupid not to have a proper tool for the job when you do it all the time..........................

To be honest I think you could probably make one in a couple of hours. 

I was a bit underwhelmed with the design but it works very well.

I wonder if you could incorporate a couple of Stanley blades into a precise "chamferer"...

I'm eyeing up our colander. Stick some coarse sandpaper  inside it.....  could  work a treat.

Think she'll miss it ?

Could double up as a hard hat when she does miss it.

Thats how the cheap Chinese ones work - two Stanley blades in a pudding basin and a mandrel stuck on. They seem to have holes in the back to break your fingers too ...

Resist, I couldn't....

 

A 114mm Starrett:

Gives me a 100mm marine ply disc (18mm):

An old soil coupler with one perished seal:

Seals removed:

Disc fits nice:

Find something to make a shaft with:

11/16" flat bit to recess the ply, nyloc pressed in:

Bolt head zinged off:

Beer o'clock!

 

Phase 2 to secure the disc in place with some peripheral screws and mount the blades!

That giant bottle of Kingfisher has kicked in! :)

 

Thinking a 20chamfer, 10mm long? The rectangle's the ply disc, the two red lines the 110mm mm soil pipe...

 

Can't help thinking a Stanley blade(s) is maybe the WRONG thing to use...

I’m trying to build my house using the minimum number of tools. I used an old wood saw to cut the pipe and a Stanley knife to chamfer the pipe (hold it at 90 degrees to the pipe and pull the knife towards you).
