hope so and sorry I got the last coupling socket.
Should work fine. The only thing that MAY go wrong is that the reducer OD doesn't fit inside the 1" coupling. The McMaster ones fit perfectly, but to be honest, you never pull the pieces close enough together so that it really matters. So those will work fine!

Has anyone made up a parts list for pulling 1.5" Tri-clamp ferrules?

So you wouldn't mind it flaring to the inside? If so all you need is a concentric reducer for OD sizes and go the opposite way. That or flare it out and try to wedge it in after it's been flared which might be pretty tough.

That looks like it would be the ticket. However when I search for concentric reducer, I find something that looks like this:



Should I be concerned that when it close to the end that it would split the hole edges?

Scratch that, I found one but it was $28. Damn!

Edit*
I went ahead and ordered one like the first picture ($7.07 shipped)

Now to figure out the rest of the parts!

Just an FYI that's pipe size you ordered.Merit Brass doesn't make tube fittings. It's going to make your hole about 1.9"OD. The reason that other fitting was expensive is because it's Tube size, 316 and it looks like they're buying it through Parker.

The fitting you ordered is on the right.

Doh, order cancelled!

So I'm looking for a 1 1/2" - 1" concentric reducer tube size?

Yes. Tube always measures OD and pipe is....funky. They say it's measured ID but it's always changing with each schedule (wall thickness). If you hear "Gauge" think tube (OD and never changes with thicker gauges) and if you hear "Schedule" think pipe (funky).

Good info to know!
I ended up ordering this one.

I called and it was about the same price. McMaster Carr has it for about $14 plus shipping. So I was happy with $16.xx shipped. Now to figure out the remaining parts.

Thanks so far!
