Special Tee

Unread postAuthor: PVC Arsenal 17 » Mon Aug 13, 2007 9:02 pm

I'm working on a new piston design that incorporates a breech loader. The design requires a tee with two slip sockets and one threaded. The thread is not the middle socket though, it's one of the side sockets. I know I've seen em, can anyone help me out?

Need a 2"

If you have room, you could cut up a 1-1/4 female adaptor and solvent weld it in there with some pipe around it.

or get a T and put a piece of pipe in it flush with the T and tap 2" hole in it, but thats only good if you have a 2" tap.
