A portable pipe beveling tool prepares pipe for welding
The Wart Millhog Portable Pipe Beveler (photo) is a right-angle I.D. clamping tool for performing any angle of end prep on 0.75 in. I.D. to 4-in. O.D. pipe of different schedules. Because it mounts securely into the pipe I.D. using a self-centering draw rod assembly, it can bevel, face and bore different pipe thicknesses simultaneously to help assure high-integrity weld joints. Producing precise square and beveled pipe ends with±0.001-in. accuracy, the beveler lets users weld pipe O.D.s that have different schedules. Easy to operate, it comes with pneumatic or electric motors, requires no cutting fluids, and is ideally suited for onsite applications. A wide range of TiN-coated blades are available. — ESCO Tool, A Unit of Esco Technologies, Inc., Holliston, Mass.
