Totally Tubular

An alternative method for almost any tube setting situation

By Joel McFadden

Tube setting is a very modern looking setting style primarily used by hand fabricators. It’s a unique method because of the limited amount of metal wall with which you have to work. This means that traditional bezel setting techniques don’t usually work well with this method. Instead, I’ve found a different method that works in almost any tube setting situation when using a prefabricated tube.
