The JD Squared Notchmaster is the notcher for builders who needs quick offset copes in tubing up to 3 inch OD! This design from JD2 is a large capacity, offset-capable addition to the popular JD Squared TN-100 tube notcher. The heavy duty steel frame holds a two-axis adjustable tubing clamp, and the ground and polished stainless shaft can be easily adjusted for offset coping.
The Notchmaster's 1 inch shaft is supported by sealed needle bearings. Using bi-metal hole saws to make the cut, this is an economical way to cope those tough applications!

Simple steps creating a perfect notch and getting most out of your tube notcher.
Many a notcher manufacturer will demonstrate how a notch is made using their machine but that is the easy part of notching. It's the right placement that's critical and makes the difference between a good joint and one that requires either a lot of gap welding or in worse case, starting over again.
Making a wrong notch is costly in both time and money. Using a common holesaw type notcher such as the NotchMaster by JD2, we'll outline the following procedures to help simplify and hopefully make for a better and closer fitting notch for many a fabricator. These procedures work - regardless of the angle and regardless whether the joining tubes are parallel, divergent or skewed.
A basic notch starts with laying up the tube where you want the joint. Temporarily secure it so the tube can be easily marked so it can be correctly placed into the notcher. Position yourself to view both tubes at the intersection from a right angle perspective so you can accurately mark both the centerline of the tube (to be notched) and the intersecting point(s). The more accurate the marks - the better the resulting notch will fit. Always mark the point of intersection on the obtuse (or greater) angle side as shown in the picture.

“The SYNC180 with the lift kit has increased my production time almost 3 fold.”
Larry has the Sync180 mounted to a custom made hitch off the backend of his work truck.
Here he is using a 3½” holesaw on a 1¼ tube. Larry uses holesaws upwards to 4”. The Sync180 with the optional lift kit makes it possible. No other notcher can swing a 4” holesaw.
A typical week’s worth of lacing braces that have been replaced.
"I’ve been using the SYNC180 for about a year now and it has made my job much more productive... all tubing fits require a 0 gap all the way around and using the SNYC180 sure beats the cut and grind method! … It’s been a great investment.”
Larry Elliott of ELLIOTT WELDING SERVICES, Kemp, Texas.

"It's not the first notcher in the world," said Snyder. "It actually came about because other notchers always have a lot of limitations. We devised the SYNC Notcher 180 to make a more user-friendly version."

Using TWITS, you are able to notch into thin tubing such as chromoly and titanium, without destroying the hole saw,or the tubing. Before now it has been nearly impossible to create a fishmouth with any hole saw type notcher.
Bicycle frame builders should take a serious look at this product. It will come in very handy for tube mitering. We have thus far sold many units in conjunction with fine tooth holesaws to various custom frame builders throughout the country.
