    The DOS program I remember in the 80's was called TUBEFIT. I couldn't think of it the other day when I posted. Thanks Bruce for the link above which triggered my memory. Here is more information on how Dan Hopper created the program. I wish I could find a DOS copy. Online calcs are fine but its a much more secure feeling having a floppy in the shop. Yes, I am that old!

    Here you go! Dan Hopper's TUBEFIT Program (There was a link towards the bottom of the online calc page link above.) Now all yah gotta do is find a floppy disk! ( and a floppy disk drive to read it...)

    If you have an operating system that no longer supports DOS, you can use DosBox, an emulator program which emulates an IBM PC compatible computer running a DOS operating system.

    It's well known enough to warrant its own Wikipedia entry...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOSBox

    It can be downloaded here...

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/dosbox/

    This is what I use to run my legacy DOS programs and it works very well. I also recommend it on my web page to run the DOS programs there.

    On the first page I immediately though of simply writing some kind of web application to do this that will auto generate images... but I guess there is one already & there is even stand alone one available.
