Default tube notching templates

I'm sure many have seen this, but it's pretty decent IMO.

You can put in your tube size, mating tube size, angle and any offset, and it creates a template (pattern) you can print, cut out, and transfer to your tubing. Wouldn't be bad to run the numbers and print out 4 or 5 of your most common joints and make cardstock patterns for them to keep in your toolbox.

example of 1.5 into 1.75 at 64 degree angle

I like it for the obnoxious angle notches, like 75 degrees:

I used 6 or 7 different ones today, worked great. I think I'll hold off on buyign a notcher since these were so easy to use and the cuts turned out pretty accurate.
