size aluminum tube question ? "over NRS"

what size of aluminum tubing (or stainless steel? probably not) is just bigger than NRS size?....I want to fabricate a couple of small "sleeves" to go over parts of my frame...(so inside diam of the bigger has to just larger than the outside of NRS size)....actually only a couple of small pieces to directly attach some fittings to try to make an anchor system for less $.....but I don't want to directly put lots of holes through my actual frame pieces.....anyone done something like this? Thanks, Chet

NRS tubing is schedule 40 1-1/4 pipe with an outside diameter of 1.66 inches. It looks like you would need to get schedule 10 1-1/2 pipe which has an inside diameter of 1.682 inches. Pipe Size Chart -

Have you thought about using Speed-Rail aluminum fittings for your project. You can pretty much "tinker toy" anything you need using these parts.

The 1 1/4 Straight Coupling or Wall Mount Flange might work for you.
