Tube Marking

The next step is carefully marking the tubes for cutting and mitering.  I use a silver marker on the carbon then lightly scribe it away to mark cut locations.
I have a .01" graduated ruler I use for marks longer that the 12" calipers can reach.
I mark a cut length, miter location line, miter diameter and angle to make it very clear.
When all the tubes are complete I check them against the drawing once more.  I don't want to make any mistakes and have to get another tube.
Next step is to cut the tubing and fit it in the jig that already been set to the correct dimensions from the CAD drawing.
