will be utilized to join adjacent end portions of an outer
tube ‘25 with an inner tube 24 as referred to above in de

Again, referring to FIGURE 6, it will be seen that
an opening 58 is rovided in the wall of the tube 25. Such
opening is conventional and later utilized for the posi

A container 59 of inert gas is mounted at some suitable
position adjacent to or upon the base 55 and is provided
with a ?exible tube 69 having a control valve 61 adjacent
its free end.

the work pieces in the machine and starting the motor 51
to revolve the “spinner” 53, may then open the valve 61
and place the free end of the tube 60 over the opening 58
to introduce into the space between the tubes 24 and 25
the inert gas to thus prevent oxygen in the air from con

in the space between said metal tubes by an inert gas, said
means comprising a tank of inert gas under pressure
mounted on said base adjacent said machine, and a ?exible
itubing extending from said tank whereby the free end
of said tubing may be placed over an opening formed in
the outermost of the metal tubes to introduce such inert
gas into the space between the tubes while expelling air
