As is my usual custom, I'm looking for a tool that I don't know the name of. The tool is generally used by sewer installers. It is basically a bar type aparatus that straps or chains to two butt ends of pipe. Then, you crank the handle over and it slides one pipe inside of the other with little effort. With as fast as PVC glue dries on hot days, it is sometimes trouble getting 4" PVC slid together. I figure this tool, if I knew what it was called, would help us out.

It's not what you are thinking of but can't you just use a simple chain or strap wrench? It should give you all the leverage you need plus allow you to give that little quarter turn and hold required for a good fit.

As an electrician I'm sure you are familiar with the aluminum handled ones from Rigid Tool. Get a pair of them and you'll be a gluing machine!

Nope, that wouldn't help. The tool I saw was totally different. It strapped onto both pieces at once, and lined then up and jacked them together. I tried to draw a pic to give the idea of what I saw:

You're title just about sums it up, it is called a soil pipe assembly tool better known as a "pipe puller". Ridgid makes one and I'm not sure who else but they are pretty handy in narrow trenches. I've used one many times for the install of service weight cast iron for which it was designed for, however you have me thinking about other uses. Unless one does a lot of commercial work they quickly become a dust collector.

Woo-hoo!

Yep, Teetor and Plum have it nailed. That's exactly what I need. Now that I have a couple of search terms, I'm gonna scope out eBay. Those friggin' things cost a little over 400 bucks. I will own one or several, but not at that price.
