- Place duct tape on the clamp of the cut-off saw and to all other areas where the tube will touch the metal in order to protect the surface from getting scratched while being cut
- Mark cutting point, clamp the tubing in place and commence the cut
- Immerse the cut end into water to cool the cut tube
- File any sharp edges evenly with a fine metal file
- Clean the tube using paper towel and some household cleaner
- Note: if necessary, ream/deburr the outside and inside of the tube. Be careful not to scratch the tubing while deburring, keep the deburr tool straight
- To polish the cut, follow instructions for maintaining stainless steel surface
NOTE: A small amount of surface corrosion is not uncommon after a some exposure to weather or salty conditions. We recommend using our passivation solution or some sort of stainless polish to keep any surface corrosion from happening; more information available on our Engineering Specs Page.
