Re: Stainless steel tubing


Tony Thompson
 

       I've used the stainless tubing for a handrail "union" on several tank cars. My cutting technique is to put the handrail wire inside the tubing, then cut off both tubing and wire in one cut with an abrasive disk. That way, there are no burrs inside. Works perfectly, though a certain fraction of the cutoffs are now in new homes somewhere on my floor.
