Hey Drew,
Hope you are doing well, haven't seen you since the lochsa. Off the cuff, schedule 40 1 inch will accept 3/4 schedule as a sleeve. The rest of the sizes don't jive. No tables, micrometers or smartypants talk. The ID measurements of pipe are pretty solid, very rarely have I found deviance (and I check). Would like to see what you come up with, home built stuff is the best!

Hey Todd

Good to hear from you. Your post just gave me some good ideas. Question, what about tubing? Can any of those sizes sleeve? Or is tube harder to come by than pipe? Hope alls well in Montucky...see you at the lochsa

I've run into a lot of the same challenges with finding compatible tubes/pipes that would work and it's tough to find stuff that fits into each other. I've had to resort to using a lathe to cut short sections of aluminum pipe to the dimensions that I've needed. Works well if you have access to the tool, expensive if you don't.
