Sawyer’s Canadian Spacing Tool

Sawyer’s Canadian Spacing Tool options create a precise weld gap when fitting pipe, spreading the gap to the exact desired width and accommodating a range of small to large diameter pipe. The Canadian Spacing Tool and Short Canadian Spacing Tool work in conjunction with a wide range of clamps, pipe welding tools, and other Sawyer tools to optimize any pipe fit up requirement. To create a precise welding gap, mount and tighten a Sawyer clamp to the ends of aligned pipe, spread the gap using the spacing tools to the desired width.

Brittle spacing tools that shatter and bend are a constant problem on the line. A traditional spacing tool is typically made of hardened spring steel, but through an optimized hardening process, Sawyer is able to produce a harder tool that is not brittle. Compared to any other version of spacing wedges on the market, the Sawyer Spacing Tool is harder and will not bend or mushroom under pressure. This Spacing Tool has a maximum thickness of ¼” and  has a longer blade space, the Short Spacing Tool has a maximum thickness of 3/16”. Each wedge gradually tapers to a smooth, chiseled point, creating the ideal spacing wedge for any pipe fit up job.

The Canadian Spacing Tool is different from the traditional Sawyer Spacing Tool due to the double-sided chiseled point and painted finish. This Spacing Tool has a maximum thickness of ¼” and  has a longer blade space, the Short Spacing Tool has a maximum thickness of 3/16”. Each wedge gradually tapers to a smooth, chiseled point, creating the ideal spacing wedge for any pipe fit up job.
