You should have an "arm" (piece of pipe) coming out of a tee that is in the wall. This is where the slip-joint is connected. Without being to see the set-up you have, a picture would really help. Maybe you can take one or two and go to Photobucket to be able to put them in this site.

The tee pipe is already connected and the 1 1/2 in pipe is coming out of the wall, howeverthere is no threads on this copper waste pipe to connect the nickle drain pipe to, to keep it tightly fit together.

they make a dwv fitting that is compression to compression just for that. Or you can get a sweat fitting that solders to copper and compression for the dwv

If you do not want a compression fitting, use a Desanco fitting sweat onto the copper pipe (best in my thinking). I have included a link to show you these fittings. Sidenote: In Florida, while working at Disney World, we used a sweatable brass set of threads on the end of the pipe. All it was is 4 threads that slid onto the pipe and was sweat in place.

Skymaster,
I am originally from Ohio, where i served my apprenticeship. Florida wouldn't recognise that word. Now in Arkansas, you may just find a piece of kinked hose with a radiator clamp on it. LOL.

I thank you all for your input I am a painter and I still live where I served my apprenticeship. But I don't have a clue about plumming.

Skymaster, I live in Lafe AR. A berg of about 500 people. Nearest big city is Jonesboro, where Arkansas State U is located, and it's 30 miles away. There are no code inspectors here. You build a house and hope everything works. Darndest thing I have ever seen. I live out in the County and it's mostly farms. Living in Florida was bad enough. Never saw galvanized allowed on gas lines, let alone being required. This is something people need to realize when answering questions in DIY Forums. The rules are different in different places.
