    i believe that's the hub you could cut the end you need off of a service weight(sv) its marked on the pipe use a transition coupling this coupling accepts both diameters....not
    a fernco coupling why do you need to o this???????

    Yes think know what mean.
    but when use a half length of 4 inch PVC pipe.
    The other half pipe not got a hub on it.
    and then end up with lot pipe can not use.

    I don't really know what your trying to do the pvc will clamp onto one end and you can pack and pour the other end or use a resilient gasket/push gasket

    you can buy them with bell ends or you can use couplings to join the pipes. Those are your choices. If you have say 50 pieces of pipe and don't want to use couplers then to put a factory style bell end on them you would need an extrusion mold and a way to heat them. Tools and time would cost more than the couplings. If you decide to buy them in 20' lengths then lets say you need a piece of pipe that is 4' long. Once you cut it you will need to use a coupling on the remaining 16' or throw it away. You will also need couplings and elbows, tees etc.. Bell ends are good when you are running a long straight length of pipe.

    Wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to simply buy couplings for each size you might be working on?

    Try googling for methods. I've noticed a few showing how to stretch or bend PVC piping...

    Don’t try that, if you care about the repair done right you will use couplings, primer/glue. Many kinds to choose from if your going from cast iron to plastic use a misson band CP 44 or CP 33. One side is ment to go into plastic the other for cast.
