I think we still have the insert tool to punch the hole for saddles.

Punch? Mais non, monsieur! You use the blowtorch and the "branding iron"

PVC took a slightly different saddle tee for the smaller sizes, with the poly tee squishing the poly a little, and the PVC tee conforming to the pipe.

PVC snap tee's are great, I remember hammering pipe into tee's on pulled systems.
Plastic poly saddles suck, the slightest root intrusion knocked them loose and they leak.

Sometimes, a different perspective can be downright refreshing

Is that your doing Boots? Most professional looking hack job I've seen in a while. The nipple had to be force threaded into the faucet. No way those are IPS threads.

I know of a system that was installed that way on a frostproof building hydrant, which did have 1-inch standard pipe threads to connect to, once you removed the works.
