malleable bushing hammered into umbrella stand
Umbrella Stand Fix?
Can someone explain what plumbing parts I need to make a 1" pipe (which fits thru the hole in my patio table) fit snuggly in the 2" hole in the umbrella stand base. (see picture from the internet) where they hammered a malleable iron bushing into a rigid umbrella stand?
My patio table that was just repaired. Unfortunately the table hole was too small to fit the 1-1/2 inch pole. It will accept a 1" pole. I need to find the plumbing fittings that will accept the 1" pole that will fit snug into the 2" umbrella stand.

perhaps ask at the big box store by you. An employee would be familiar with the various fittings in the store for you.
I have tried the box stores, they just look at me like I have 3 heads and run off to lunch!!! Not sure about pvc. Would it be sturdy enough to withstand high winds. Don't want to find the umbrella in my neighbors yard :-)
All you should need is the inside dimension of the pipe fitting in the opening. With the picture you have, and that dimension, an associate at home depot, Menards, etc. should be able to help you find PVC pipe that will fit down the existing pipe. If that is a larger dimension than what will fit in the hole in the table, they have connections that you can use to reduce the dimension to the size you need. If the pipe goes all the way in the pipe of the stand, it should hold up to the wind really well, but I have had umbrellas pop out of the stands that they came with, so nothing is probably infallible. Once you have the pipe set up you can paint the pipe with whatever color paint for plastics that you want to go with your décor. I hope this helped you, Sweet Pea!
thank you all for your suggestions, I will try the box stores one more time. hopefully I'll get lucky.
