Thanks for the help!
That confused me at first too... The inside diameter of the pipe nipple is 1/2 inch. The outside diameter is about 13/16. As you drill the holes make sure to check as you go up in hole size. Some pipe nipples seem to thread in at 3/4. Both of mine have required 13/16.

Sorry, but I don't have any pics of that specifically.
