The Arc-Fit Angular tool produces a consistent accurate notch in pipe. Because this tool stamps out the notch, each tool is dedicated to a specific tube or pipe size at a specific angle.

The Arc-Fit Angular notching tool is the way to quickly and easily notch the end of pipe so it can be joined to the side of another pipe at a specific angle.  The notch is ideally suited to welding with a rod or heavy wire. The resulting “V” at all contact points allows for full weld penetration without having weld buildup which must be ground down later. You’ll need a Arc-Fit Angular Housing, an Arc-Fit Angular Two-Station Assembly and a power source.  You can use our Vogel 120V Hydraulic Press or most ironworkers, punch presses or press brakes.

How it works: The first station notches a deep notch with an elliptical end. One press stroke is needed in this station.

The second stations nip the left and right side walls completing the operation. Two press strokes required in this station.

Each Arc-Fit Angular assembly is made for one size pipe to fit one size pipe at one angle.  Our most popular tools notch at 35 degrees, ideal for handrails & 45 degrees ideal for cross braces on large structures, panels and gates.  Although the tool is not adjustable, some of our customers ‘cheat’ by not fully inserting the pipe in the first station, it is possible to create a slightly shallower angle (up to approx. 5°).

Arc-Fit Angular tooling is designed to be sharpenable for long life. Many customers order replacement parts first, then when received, send the old parts in for sharpening. This avoids any downtime and eliminates any expense for rush processing, overnight shipping, etc. Please contact us to obtain replacement part costs.

Available Options:

Can I use the first station of my Arc-Fit Angular to make 90° notches?

No. Although the first station look similar, the Arc-Fit Angular creates a deep elipse in the first station, a notch that is too long and narrow to be appropriate for a 90° notch. For 90° notching our standard Arc-Fit tooling is required.

What angle should I order?

The Arc-Fit Angular is most popular for railings alongside stairways. For this application our customers most commonly order a 35° angle. Note that this same angle can also be described as 55° (see illustration below). We can also make the tool for other angles, please contact us to discuss your needs.

I need more than one angle / I’m not sure what angle I will need.

The Arc-Fit Angular is designed to consistently notch out one angle. By not fully inserting the pipe in the first station, it is possible to “cheat” and create a slightly shallow angle, perhaps up to 5° less, at most. If you need a wider range of angles you may wish to consider the ABC Abrasive Belt Coper which is able to produce copes at any angle, 90° – 45°.
