what is this called?

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to get all the materials together to make my hard tail but I don't know what this piece is called.

I thought it would be a "sleeve" a "coupler" a "joiner" etc but no one at the steel shop seems to have the slightest idea what I'm talking about. what do you call this thing that connects the pipes together to give it more strength? or does everyone just use a piece of pipe the same size as the ID?

Sleeve is usually external, Slug is internal. And yes, most people usually just use another piece of tube.

Mic the inside of your frame tube, go a couple thou smaller, otherwise its a bitch to get in, we do it all the time with roll cages, slug 1-3/4" x .120 wall tube with 1-1/2" tube, worst case throw your material in a lathe, or just flapper it down a little so it slips in easy.
