    Where did you get those saddles at? I bought a cheap pair for 2" and 1-1/2" but Those right there look like the business! Do they come in 90's as well?

    10-4 thanks. I will have to appropriate me some money, but im getting a good pair of the 1 1/2" , 2" and 3". takes the guess work and free hand work out of things. I absolutely hate free handing to make handrails. Some people just got it down pat and are perfect at it. I can do it free hand, but I would much rather have a template like these.

    it's a great way to go, but you have to measure your length after you cut, the off set from the torch tip and the drag angle will change the distance from the jig, so when i'm done with the jig, i pull a measurement from the base of the saddle and add my top rail diameter to that.

    They are selling these adapters on Craigs List up here. Pipe fence is not very popular around here.

    What you are doing sure looks good.
