    Need Coupling for Captured Hollowing System D Handle

    I built my "D" handle tool for my captured hollowing system but I need a coupling that will fit the 3/4" round stock of the d handle (both made from same stock) and the the 3/4 boring bar....I dont have access to a welder...Will have it all welded up once I get this coupling or something to put this together...Any ideas? I looked at pipe fittings etc but I would like a good solid coupling about 3 to 4" long...

    Mike, I built my D-handle rig. What I did was I found a short piece of 1 1/4" solid steel shaft and drilled into both ends to make a coupling. If you can't find anything...and want to try this....I might have a piece.
    It's not what you achieve in life...It's what you overcome!
