Dammit, every youtube video i'v tryed to watch eather comes up no longer available or just stops loading! I can see the begining frame and it looks like a bell reducer in your hand.

As for "glue gap" as in solvent welding, there isn't saposed to be any. The genral idea is to mesh the chemicals to gether so they mix then cure as one piece.

Shhhhhhhh, i'm waiting to hear the comments about useing the bell reducer.

Ok...after watching it a few times...

Scott I think your going to have to do a combination of the both. You said you want it to seal and screws alone won't make it seal good. So use an epoxy. They make one specifically for PVC call Bond&Fill its normally used to glue the PVC siding and trim together it I think it will work well for what you have... Then you screw it as well...

By the way what are to holes for? Is it another Co-axial gun you making?
