You will need:
You might also need:
Calculate how much pipe you need by using "hoop size x 3.14"
Measure the outside of the pipe using the flexible tape measure, and mark the point you need to cut
Cut your pipe off using the pipe cutter, and check the join. Even out any wonky edges now.
Mark the center point of your connector, on the top curved size (unless connector is straight). Check if your connector will fit or if you need need to heat the pipe using the heat gun.
Push the connector in to the half way point, heating the pipe first if required
Drill a hole through the connector and pipe (1 side only)
Use your rivet gun to secure the connector and pipe together. Use the hammer if the rivets are not lying flat against the hoop.
Repeat steps 5,6 and 7 with the other end of the pipe
