I did promise to post a few fab pics, this is a rolled 45 deg offset. all you need is a sound 90 corner , and a few bits and pieces. its 280 roll and a 610 offset. when you measure between these points that's the offset in 45 deg your looking for. ie 670 again on the corner 670 x 670 that's your travel 947 that's centre to centre , on 8" pipe a 45 deg bend has a centre in 8 4 2 1 the second and last number are used 5" x 2, 45s 10" needed off travel length another 8mm for gaps. alan. thanks greywynd

I suppose 6 and 8 inch would be the answer jen, larger pipe is just a little harder to handle, though the higher you go the welding seems easier. I have been constantly welding light 3" up to 6" pipe must be up to a year now. ive got a break of about 6weeks on various sites, think I have some pics somewhere lads bear with me. jen great video nice to see you keeping an old craft alive respect. flange.. explain pics later.

Your caps look like subarc welds. Beautiful.

cheers chris appreciate it. whats happening in those last pics is me trying out a new flavour of 7016 on roots, it has turned out much better than the rod we had previously using. the fittings are slightly different I/d so I was holding the rod at the angle shown. its more visible in this spool. till later, best regards alan.

I must have welded these two reducers side by side you can see they were built differently, caught me out.
