Is the copper tube supposed to feel a little loose with the rigid fitting? Using 1/2 inch OD copper tube with Primochill Revolver SX fittings. It doesn't feel like a solid connection like a soft tube using compression fittings. I can still pull the tube off the fitting. Is it supposed to compress over the tube?

It is normal for the pipe to pop out from fittings with little force, but it is strong enough to be water tight, Since its a compression fitting for hard tube, it plugs into the first part of the fitting then the o-ring on the tube gets compressed by the compression collar. As long as you can compress the o-ring perfectly you won't run in to any issues.

Hey guys, I'm looking to re polish my copper piping for when I rebuild my PC this weekend. Is there a method for sealing/ polishing copper that you would recommend so that I can handle my pipes with out tarnishing them and so that they have a lustrous sheen.

Wear gloves or clear coat ..you can also use wax to seal them.

What sort of wax should I buy? I usually go to my local ace hardware for things like that, so if they have it in stock that would be nice.

what does 10mm and 12mm correspond to in inches? McMaster only reports their dimension in inches.
