JMR TN-1000 Tube and Pipe Notcher

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

The JMR TN-1000 Tubing and Pipe Notcher is a premium tool and the most versatile hole saw notcher on the market.  The TN-1000 is manufactured from bar stock, not plate, to increase strength.  The TN-1000 has a 1.125″ induction hardened shaft supported by Timken bearings.  The custom designed shaft seals prevent bearing and shaft damage over years of service.  The shaft accepts replaceable hole saw mounting threads.

Angle changes are made simple due to a Timken thrust bearing at the pivot point.  The JMR TN-1000 can be rotated 180 degrees around the end of the tube to get the angle you need from either side of the tube.  The TN-1000 will also do offset notches with the addition of our shim package.

Bill “BillaVista” Ansell wrote a product review article for detailing the JMR TN 1000 and basic tube notching tips.  Be sure to check out the Pirate4x4 article as BilliaVista writes to “introduce you to the JMR TN1000 tube notcher and demonstrate some of the techniques used in notching tube with a hole-saw notcher.”
