Measuring Pipe End

We marked the two pieces of pipe as we had done before by dragging a piece of metal along them while clamped together. Then we wrapped a piece of an old tape measure around them and determined the circumference; half of that would be the exact opposite side of the pipe. On one end we only need to take 1⁄2 inch off on one side. On the outer ends we wanted a nice 45-degree angle, so that meant cutting a full 5 1⁄2 inches off one side.
