Cutting Body Tubes 12 years 2 months ago #464

What is the best way to cut STRAIGHT around a body tube. When ever I try the cut always turns out crooked.

I use a powered miter saw, but you can use a miter box and a hacksaw or a pipe clamp or a strip of paper wrapped around the tube.

Alright Aaron like you suggested I've been looking at the PML kit Mini BBX with CPR. I printed the instructions via pdf, which I understand completely, but obviously with the CPR version it needs a altimeter. I printed the instructions to the Co-Pilot V. 2 also. After reading them multiple times I still don't understand the menus and flight modes. Setting the settings ( I guess thats what they called. ) was also very complex. I'm hoping to complete that kit, that I have not yet acquired :(, by the first launch next year. Does anyone have that altimeter that could show me how it works at the next launch. If not I will be buying it soon anyway, so if anyone understands the instructions I'll buy that and bring it to a meeting.

Thanks for all your help, John Wedding
