post-pipecalc.jpgWe received a tip from a reader today about Stan Harder’s “Harder Woods” site and his free pipe joint template online software. 

Apparently Stan was frustrated at the high cost of the PVC connections he’d need for his dust collector project — and he couldn’t find some of the specialty angles we wanted — so he put together a slick application to calculate the exact shape of the cutouts required and output a printable template.  He was then kind enough to add the application to his site so you can use it yourself without charge.

To use the software, simply navigate to the page (link below), enter the information about your joint (angle, pipe diameters, wall thickness, and lateral offset), click the “submit” button, and print the templates it returns.  If your joint template doesn’t fit well on standard 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper, Stan’s application conveniently splits the design onto multiple pages with registration marks so you can print it and re-assemble it.

    This is really cool. I went over and checked it out and it was very easy to use. It could be a bit tedious if you had to do a bunch of these, but you could probably make a perl/python/etc. script to automate the process since the web form is quite simple. Now he’s got me thinking…. how does he calculate these anyway? Hmm….
