 It’s possible to notch tubing using a grinder and a half-round file, but why bother when the job is so much easier using a tubing notcher? This one’s from Eastwood, and is used with a handheld electric drill and regular holesaws. Using a holesaw of the same diameter as the tubing (1 5/8 inch in our case) produces a perfect notch every time. The tool can also be set to cut the tubing at an angle.
