Tube coping with paper templates

My drill press mounted coper/fishmouth fixture thingamajiggy can't cope a smaller angle than 45 degrees. There are a couple free online programs that will determine the cope profile you need with just punching in the tubing sizes, wall thickness, and cope angle. Calculate the profile, print it, wrap it, and notch. Tube notcher+ works great, just convert your inch measurements to mm.
