Tutorial for Totally Hand Made Duct Fittings 

In 1986 I use to work at the Sheet Metal Shop where we made all the ducts and fittings almost exclusively by hands! Yes we had a hydraulic guillotine shear, sheet metal brakes, slip roll machine, hand-tools and this about it. Nevertheless we were able to make all kinds of rectangular and round ducts and all types of fittings.

In 2015, almost 30 years later, I decided to share my skills with all of you. Every weekend I was making one of the fittings below, taking pictures and writing tutorials.

All the pictures are set in the step-by-step sequence with brief explanations that would allow you to make any fitting in the matter of minutes.   

Every tutorial is available separately, so you can purchase an instant access to any of them or you can save and purchase an instant access to them all.

The price for the most of the individual tutorials is only $2.50 and you can purchase them all for low price of only $24.99!

If you can’t find a tutorial for a specific fitting in the list below, send me an email by using email module at the bottom of this page and I’ll make it for you.

4. 45 Degree Roof Penetration

Recently, and I'm not kidding, I've received this question below:
"how big of whole needed fo 10 inch pipe through 45 degree angle" - well of course it wasn't a direct question, but it was a "keyword" someone was using to find my site on the web.

In my more than 30 years in the ductwork installation business I've never tried to find an answer to this question, so I looked on the web...
And guess what it is there!

On the forum website - http://forums.jlconline.com this type of the question was asked long time ego:

"Math gurus.... not a framing question

I am about to install a woodstove. The flue goes straight up thru a cathedral ceiling that is 12:12. The pipe that penetrates the ceiling is approx. 8" diameter. Selkirk (Metalbestos) sells a woefully inadequate one-size-fits-all two-piece trim kit that does not provide a tight fit... how could it, when it supposedly "fits" anywhere from 6:12 to 12:12?

Anyway, my question is about laying out the correct cutout given the OD of the pipe and the 45 degree angle of the lid. If I can make the layout on paper I can get my friendly local tin man to make a decent looking piece of out heavy galvanized sheet.

An alternative is to send it to the friendly non-local tin men who have a CNC cutout machine, it would take them just a few seconds.

But I'd rather do it. How do-able is this?"

So, if you'd find this thread on that website you'd actually learn how this question was answered, but here is another question - would you understand the answers? I'm sorry but even with my master degree in the mechanical engineering I didn't. Furthermore, would an ordinary tin knocker with pretty much forgotten high school diploma ever understand it - sorry guys, but I do not think so!

So I decided to think about it for a moment and find a solution any ordinary tin knocker would understand - no math, no bull... and here we go:...

5. How to Make Radius Elbow with Hand Tools

If you would search the web for the tutorial in the title above you may find this video file:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzLQotVEsKQ

This is a relatively good video, with only a couple of flows: the second part of this video doesn't exist and it's not clear what type of audience the author is targeting.

If you are working as a sheet metal worker at any shop in the USA the experienced guys would teach you how to make all the parts, run the Pittsburg seam through the machine and put all the parts together in a heart beat! But if you are a somebody else this video is pretty much useless because you most likely don't have a Lock Former Machine... 

So, in my tutorial for the price of only $2.50 you will learn how to make all four parts of the radius elbow; how to make the Pittsburg seam and how to put this elbow together. This tutorial also includes the video that is mentioned above that you can visualize at least part of the process and 37 high quality pictures.

7. How to Make Radius Offset with Hand Tools

If you compare this radius offset (on the left) to square throat offset below there is not much difference. However it looks better and it has lower resistance to the airflow. Of course it's a bit more complicated to make - it might take extra 10 minutes or so to draw an outline, make and put all parts together, but it worth the effort.

8. Now to Make Radius Riser with Hand Tools

For the residential applications risers usually used in the cases when you need to bring duct up in the joist space, get it down from the joist cavity or rise it after it passed an I-beam. In the first two cases the rise itself for the 10" (12", 14") x 8" duct could be 8" - 9", in the third one usually it starts from 9 ½" - height of an I-beam plus a bottom board. If an I-beam is taller then the riser should be taller as well.

9. How to Make Offset and Riser in One Piece 

I already have this kind of tutorial for a piece of duct. You can find it on the paid page above. But if you need a real thing something like shop-made offset or riser you might be interested in this tutorial.

You can't find online a tutorial for these kind of fittings - because I already tried and there is nothing for the ducts (just for the pipes), and they won't teach you at the sheet metal shop - because you can't use a Pittsburg lock machine for this fitting's Pittsburg seam! That's why these kind of fittings you can make only with the hand tools.

The price for this tutorial is only $3.50. On the page you'll see 36 high quality pictures set in the step-by-step sequence with explanations.

The same reasoning may prompt you to use a conventional Hess fitting when you don't have enough room for the vertical and flat 90*-s.

28. & 29. How to Make Transitions from Your New Furnace to Old Plenum and from Cold Air Boot with Hand Tools 

In the example above I took a hypothetical furnace and plenum and made a transition.

In the picture on the left you can see a real furnace, plenum and cold air drop. A transition between a furnace and plenum you can purchase below. However you can orderany other transition that represents your installation and I’ll make outlines for all its parts for you. How would you do that?

Let’s say your old furnace is 46” tall and the plenum is 30” x 25”. Your new furnace most likely will be 34” tall and its flange would be good for a 16” x 20” or 20” x 20” plenum. So, in order to make a transition for you I need to know all these numbers plus if you’re able to line up your new furnace with the plenum’s side on the right. If not, I need to know how much you’re planning to move your furnace one way of the other.

Also I need to know how you are planning to set your furnace in another dimension. In the example above you can set it in the middle (25”) or line up with one side.

The price for making your transition will be only $10.00 and after you pay, I'll make a tutorial for you and you’ll be able to gain an access to the paid page where I’ll set the pictures in step-by-step sequence with brief explanations or I may email them to you.

33. How to Make Turning Veins

Recently I found this post online:

“Need help making turning veins

I could really use some help making turning veins. I was only taught the basics on sheet metal fabrication and learned the rest from practicing on my own. I have put together a nice little shop for myself and I would like to learn how to make turning veins. I only have a break and Pittsburgh not sure if I need other tools. Here are some pics (one of them on the left) of my recent attempt, I think they will work but to me they are ugly and that bothers me. I just cut 6" strips with 1/2" folds to secure to the boot. Please some assistance will be greatly appreciated.”

So, I decided to make a paid page dedicated to the issue. For the price of only $2.50 you can learn how to make beautiful turning veins that will look as professional as it gets.

Also, I decided not to include this chapter to the above e-book just like I did it with three last chapters before, because I have no idea if this chapter will increase its value. Instead you can purchase it here below or you can purchase the e-book as a whole and pay for this chapter separately $1.00 on the “Links Page”.
