How to Use Table Saw Miter Slot to Aid in Marking Curved PVC Pipe
posted on by
Marking up pipes To make straight marks on round objects like PVC pipe, keep it steady in the table saw's miter slot, then make the marking across the table saw.

I’ve found that 1-1⁄2"-diameter PVC pipe, split lengthwise on my band saw, makes handy organizers in a shop drawer for my scroll saw blades. Drawing a straight cutting line on the curved pipe was difficult until I figured out this simple method: I set the pipe section in my table saw’s miter slot to hold it stationary, then drag a pencil across the saw table and the pipe. It gives me a perfectly straight line that’s also parallel to the pipe walls.
