One end of a nipple will fit into a 3/4" fitting and the other end (with the reduced OD) will fit into a piece of 1" pipe.
I own a Jet mini wood lathe, and someone suggested that I could make a jig that would allow me to use a router with the lathe to shave the pipe. I believe the idea is to build some sort of box around the lathe that would support the router and allow me to move it along the length of the pipe as it is being turned. The person who described the box also suggested using a 3/4" router bit with a bottom end designed for cutting.
Has anyone built a jig like this? Can you give me any more specific advice about building a jig, or possibly alternative ways of solving my problem? Also, I don't own a router yet, so any advice about purchasing a router for this job would be appreciated as well.
