Constructing a cone 2015-03-12
From Levi:
While the mathematics at the welding shop page was very helpful there is one vital part missing. If I have never built a cone how do I figure out how much bigger the diameter of my circle has to be when laying flat on the floor verses the diameter when it has been pulled into a cone.

From lisa:
We need to make a cone that has the following dimensions.
14-3/8" diameter on large end
13-3/8" diameter on small end
4" tall

What are the dimensions I need to cut in order to make a cone with one seam?
