yep a slip fitting that will slip into your 1 inch on one side and on the other side has a 1 1/2 inch threaded female end. THey have them in the plumbing section of your local DIY store. Very easy to solve
The big difference I can hear in the videos is the slurping sound made by the devil. Not sure if they used real time audio with the skim or if it makes any noise, but the loudness of that devil would bother me.
That said...if I could find the devil in the store for $30 I would try it.
