Help With finding fittings in Aus.

Unread postAuthor: skinner » Wed May 09, 2007 2:21 am

I need help, im intending to make a barrel sealer, I have all the other pieces (T, elbows, pipe, piston) but I need a reducing bushing to go from 50mm, down to 25mm, but i cant find them anywhere.

I have thought up an alternative, an end cap drilled out so the barrel goes through, but then theres no way to align the barrel perfectly.

Thanks in advance.

you could make one out of epoxy. ive never done it, but it would probably work. just use an entire tube of JB weld or something.

here is what i would do. I would cut a piece of foam or cardbord that fit in the tee, then fit the barrel through the foam. then set the foam and barrel in the tee and pour epoxy in the tee. the foam would keep the epoxy from going past where you want it to.

good luck...
