Ever have to notch tube in an awkward place, like say on a bend? Well good luck getting a tight clamp with the conventional tube notchers on the market. Baileigh Industrial took this challenge head on and came up with what many claim to be the best hole saw tube notcher on the planet, the TN-250.
The TN-250 tube notcher is like nothing that you have seen. The life blood of the notcher is the unique self centering radial vise that allows the operator to clamp down on tubes and more in any direction, including in the middle of a bend. Also by using a truly self centering vice, the TN-250 is the only hole saw tubing notcher that is always centered left to right and up and down, no matter what size tube or pipe you have.
But, the vise is not the only thing that set the TN-250 apart from the competition; the back bone is made from heavy duty ¾” steel plate and all component inter lock to create a very rigid platform to reduce vibration and prolong the life of the hole saws. The shaft of the TN-250 is a 1-1/4" Thompson® shaft that rides in sealed and oiled needle bearings. Unlike other tube notchers in this category, the two ends of the shaft are completely replaceable. This helps save time and money.
The TN-250 hole saw tube notcher can notch up to 2-1/2" OD and allows large degree angles. The notching carriage can pivot up to 230 degrees allowing the operator to come from the "back side” of the notch. A large degree plate helps get these back side notches lined up. The TN-250 also has a fully adjustable axis to accommodate almost any notch combination considering the pivot moves left to right up to 230 degrees, there are two slotted mounting rails for almost any position of the bearing block, and finally we have the easily adjusted position for up and down.
