dont push it too tight, the reason for the extra length in the joint is for wear and tear of the spigot, they normally have 10-15mm extra.

so, are you saying that it's ok to have that 10-15mm gap then and they do not have to be flush together happy

Redmouse is right, they are not supposed to fit together "flush", the gap allows for wear over the years which will certainly occur.

As Eccles rightly says the wear which occurs over a period of time is taken up by the taper on the spigot joint which is why they go tight and leave a "bit sticking out" as it were-this amount will get smaller over time,nothing to worry about though!
A warm welcome to the forum also, Mick big grin big grin big grin
