how do i do this?

I'm trying to build an antenna with a base section of pvc. I can use from
1/2" od to 1" od with no problems.

What I need to do is join a schedule 40 pvc nipple to a male 1"x14 threaded

I don't believe any std pipe thread and size will match up with that.

If it won't, I thought about using 3/4" pvc and running a tap into the open
end, and then screwing that down onto the male mounting stud (the 1" x 14).

Is a 1"x14 tap fairly common? Will my way work?

Anyone have an easier way?

You didn't say how long the PVC was going to be. PVC pipe is not that strong and since this post is in the Boating section, I assume it will be outside. PVC is not UV friendly. It will split or break after a short amount of time.

You can buy the swing base locking handle at any marine store for around 7 bucks .
