For the welders and fence builders.....

I remember seeing in one of my cattle magazines a company was making a coped sleeve for pipe fence building. It was approx. 4" long and coped on one end and square cut on the other. It was made to slide over a piece of pipe allowing you to have a coped end to weld to the post, You just slid the sleeve over the horizontal pipe, then welded the coped end to the post and the square end to the horizontal pipe. They were mostly for drill stem pipe, but I think there were different sizes.

Does this type of thing ring a bell for anyone? I've dug through piles of cattle magazines with no luck finding the article.

Thanks.

I’ve seen them advertised. No idea where to get them, though. I asked a local fence builder here about them one time. He said they were too expensive to be buying very many of them. You’d also have to weld twice as much. Not a big deal for a small project, but I can see it being a problem doing it day in and day out.

I'm measuring challenged 

I only have two hands and opposing thumbs

Cut hole in post 

Stick pipe thru so it holds it for me and the length of run can vary and funky scope cut is not required 

Weld around it have strong fence

Son had an angle set up on cutoff saw. 

Two cuts

Worked pretty well 

He built a real nice setup.

My FIL had one that slipped over 2 3/8” drill stem. It had a T-handle set screw and was used as a guide to cut the end of the pipe with a cutting torch.

I have 1 of these in 2 7/8 and 2 3/8. Most of my cuts are pretty good, but I have a 8 pound sledgehammer for the final fittings. I always try to cut them so they stay up until I get them welded. I use 2 3/8 for the rails and 2 7/8 for my post. Lisa does 90% of the welding and when we started the corral work, she wasn’t much of a welder so my joints had to be tight. Not so much now. She can out weld me

This is similar to what I was thinking of. But they weren't split.
