    I couldn't find any purpose made slip couplings so I was wondering if it would be reasonable to file down the stop of a regular solvent weld coupler?

    Sure is, just mark the pipes so you know where it goes.

    You're going to have to be quick - and wear gloves - and hope the solvent doesn't grab. Put plenty on both socket and pipe(y)

    Hence marking the pipe so you know where the coupler has to be. Would advise the cleaner is used on both the coupler and the pipes. OR if it is out of sight then use a rubber coupling
