    Re: Troubleshooting Test

    Are you sure this is a stubout and not a premade hammer arrestor?
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

          Now you're on the list.

          Could be. I have no idea. . Just know what I ran into. Anyone got a picture of a Hammer Arrestor with a spun-weld copper end?

            The guy who hired me was not paying,he was already in to me for two grand on the ground work.Sorry J.C. I thought the cheap P.O.S. would try and set the finish himself.Instead he lost the house in foreclosure.Now your guy's got it.

              I've seen all kinds made in the field (useless) and manufactured. I don't recall one with the bullet end though. Doesn't make sense that it could end up as a stubout.

                are you saying that the moen spout doesn't fit 1/2'' / 5/8'' od copper?

                call moen and ask them wtf?

                do they make bullets that are 3/4'' od for hvac?

                newer crecent wrenches are laser engraved or just a set of open end wrenches will get you pretty close to the proper size.

                how about a swedging tool?

                  I first thought WTH? I've lost my mind.
                  Then I thought, HVAC tube? Bullet end? Just as you did. But I have no idea.
                  Then I thought of the things I didn't have with me as I was just going to put trim on. As always, you need a tractor trailer of stuff to put a toilet handle on.

                  The spout will work fine on normal 5/8" copper.

                        How much bigger is it how thick was the wall could you sand cloth it down enough to get a coupling on it ?

                          My mom's house has a water hammer arrester with a bullet end. It has a 3/4" diameter and is about 30 years old.

                            Looks like it froze to me.

                            I was told there is no way other than cutting out the swole copper and soldering in new to correct that issue. Ran into some on a 2 story a few months back and man that stuff will piss ya off. I think propress fittings are a leeeetle bit larger inside than reg copper fittings though. Seemed to be able to shove one on when we couldn't a reg coupling if I remember right.
