    Subject: [new_distillers] Liebig question
     
    Ok I have read about liebigs and have read up on soldering so i think i can pull it off. My question however may be one i will get made fun of for. I am intending to make my liebig 32" x 1/2 inch covered by 24" x 3/4 inch pipe. My problem lies in getting the 1/2 inch pipe to slide through the 3/4 x 1/2 x 1/2 T conector. I don't have and don't want to buy a dremel tool and am kind of afraid i will mess up the entire T conector if I file it by hand. Is there an easy way or a secrete way of not screwing up the whole fitting????
    Thanks for any input and sorry for the question which is appearly obvious to everyone else...

      Thank you guys for the input and encouragement. Obviously I am moving slowly with my build but my liebig is done. working when i have time it my not be beautiful but its all me and i'm happy with it. I do however have another question: I found a person on E bay who sales 2" pipe and says for a $5 fee they will flang one end and that will suffice to use it with a tri clamp onto a keg. will it actually work size wise. obviously i will need a seal between the two. also would it be strong enough even for light easy use??? Has anyone else tried this??

        So that ended my discussion with him. It'll cost more than his fee, but I can get the right Safety-Silv 45 at Home Depot and a Mapp gas can.
