Yes, in LI, NY.
Looking for 2 - 1" & 1 - 1.5" bulkhead sizes.
Something 2.5 - 3 inches high so I can grab it with my big mits.

Schedule 40? I don't think I have 1 and 1.5" bulkheads around the house to measure the nuts. Are you able to measure the size wrench opening needed? I might be able to find it online.

This was a quick thing I made so I could tighten some bulkheads in an overflow. Needs a little tweaking but is this roughly what you are looking for? I will dig through my box of plumbing and see what size bulkheads I have.

OK, no worries, my trip to the source has to be postponed due to a scheduled cataract surgery requiring a Covid test & self quarantine till done.

Shirak,
got the measurements this morning: Actual taken with calipers, nothing added for clearances.
1 inch nut-- 501mm wide & 60mm thick.
1.5 inch nut-- 693mm wide & 92mm thick.
2 inch nut-- 844mm wide & 74mm thick.
Would need 2 pieces of the 1 inch & 1 piece each of the others.
Question, is it possible to offset the handle or the open end upwards roughly 30 degrees?

Do you mean 50.1 and 6.0? millimeters? I think your off by a factor of 10. Interesting. I found an 1" bulkhead and the nut is 52mm but I can use your measurements and just add a mm. 30 degree angle between the junction of the handle and the wrench head should be doable. Let me whip up something rough so we are on the same page.

Was thinking more along the lines of the 1st diagram where the head is angled up.
I am going to trust you on exactly what angle to use. 30 degrees could be too much & I don't have a protractor to double check.
Thanks, Vinny

These for getting into an external overflow that has a rim around the top lip?
