compression fittings?

Unread postAuthor: JDP12 » Mon Apr 28, 2008 4:10 pm

Hey all, i'm looking for a compression tube fitting that will allow the tube to go through the whole fitting (yes its for a coax). when i'm looking on mcmaster i'm having a hard time finding one that lets the tube go through the threaded part as well- can anyone help me out here?

thanks,

ILTBTU

I've never seen a compression fitting like that and I am almost sure they don't exist...

you can always epoxy the tube inside a nipple

From reading the discription, I think the tube will slide all the way through. You can drill it out the rest of the way if it doesn't allow you to slide the tube all the way through.

It looks like there is a stop in the fitting so you will have to drill it out. I think...

and if you want, you could use some sort of silicone to seal it and use machine screws to secure it. That way, you could remove it if neccisary...

Just drill out the fitting with a drill the same size as the tube you want to use in it...
