FTC cut template for a pipe to collect and store balls

Drawing on how to cut a pipe to be able to collect and store balls in this pipe. The sheet format is ISO A4 and the drawing size is real (100% scale)


The part of the process that we are now entering is called surface finish or in this case pipe shape finish. And we'll use the drill to smooth and to finish our shape on the pipe. Here is what you should do. First, safety glasses. Put them on your eyes. Now you cannot see me but you got to trust me that I'm with the safety glasses. Then we move these elements. I'll just drop them on the floor. Then we take the drill. And it's important while mounting the grinding stone on the drill to have the drill turned off. So, when I press it's turned off, then I mount the grinding stone. Now, there are different models of drills and they have different mechanisms but they follow the same principle. We have the tool mounted on the drill. Then we turn the drill on

and you can see that the grinding stone is rotating. Now I'm not using gloves as you can see and as a safety precaution if you start, you can touch with your finger, with your arm. But if you have a glove and while working if this grinding stone catches the stone, it can harm your arm, it can break a finger or two. You can see that you have nothing on your finger. Now, let's start with the process. Of course, before starting because it is important it's a safety notice: this thing that we don't use gloves only applies to the grinding stone that we are using these are phone based. Now, if you are using other tools check the safety precautions whether you should use some gloves or not.

The whole process will take some time and as you can see right here we are already near the marker and we just need 5 or 10 more minutes to finish the whole cut. And you must be careful when you are close to the marker just don't apply that much pressure. Also as you saw we were two people and we were holding the drill but it is always a good idea to have the drill hold with another instrument but we decided to show you this because we assume that you don't have some instrument for holding the drill on place and you can use a second person. And another good idea is to have the drill fixed and to move the pipe around the drill and this should be much more easier than the opposite where we have the pipe fixed and you move the drill. So, finish the cut and have the pipe prepared.
