Joining EMT together

This is a bit of an odd question- I have 2 pieces of 1/2" emt (10'long) I want to join together to make one 20' piece. Issue is- I can't have anything on the outside of the pipe. I need to join them together from the inside (or meld them together somehow)- any thoughts?

If being used for electrical work than the connector must be on the outside to maintain the inside diameter.

If not for electrical use and you just need to join them..... a slightly smaller pipe that fit internally would work. Now....just need to determine what size.

What are you using the EMT for ?

You can buy 20' lengths of EMT from an electrical supply dealer. More of a commercial item, but it's available from the right supplier.

Edit: looks like you can order 20's through Menards if you have that chain in your area.
