    Hi

    Im hoping someone will be able to offer me some help here - im a tropical fishkeeper and have drilled many tanks for overflows with a diamond holesaw. I now have a requirement to go to a larger size to accommodate a 32mm solvent weld tank connector - the outside diameter of the threads that will push through the drilled hole is 41mm .... thus far I have only been able to find 40mm or 45mm holesaws. 40mm is clearly too small and the 45mm is going to be a bit sloppy I fear - can anyone tell me what size hole I should drill to fit this 32mm solvent weld tank connector...

    Thank you

    you can get a 42mm hole saw or use a 41mm and go round the hole with a half round file.
