I am after one of these to use as an outside table, the one we have already is far to high to use outside so I want to cut one down to size if anybody has a spare for sale .

Hi Mike @mike mcglynn

I have a couple that I'm taking up to the bring and buy weekend after next. Both steel, one is 700mm long and brown powder coated and the other is 600mm long and chromed, a fiver each

If your not coming to the bring and buy then do you know anybody that's going or the following weekend at the Thetford Bash that can do the Funster courier service or I can find out what postage would be.

Will be interesting to see the results of you cutting it down. We have a spare chrome one that’s too long but of course each end is chamfered and we never came to a conclusion as to how to do it and make it look decent.
One method I have seen is to make multiple lengthwise slits in the newly cut off end and squeeze them together ? I think that was it.

My plan would be to cut 5 or 6 inches along from the taper on one end, shorten the other bit to length, then join the two halves together by inserting into the tube a tight fitting length of nylon rod or wood across the join with about 4 or 5 inches into each half of the tubes.
Stick a couple of self tappers or rivets to secure the two halves if you are concerned that it is not a stable enough joint.
Use the cut end up under the table to hide the join away, jobs a goodun.

When I had my VW T3 and later a T4, I used a tripod for the table outside. I cut a section out of the leg. I then cut lengthways into the off cut, allowing me to squeeze it into the cut ends of the leg. A couple of pop rivets above and below the cut held it in position. Worked well for over 25 years until I sold my T4 last year

Cheers

i was going to suggest exactly that its the same method i used to narrow a fiamma bike rack i put two 6mm bolts through in place of the rivets
