Modify Original Post
Start by cutting about ¼" off the bottom of the original post. We have to eliminate the bevel. Wrapping a piece of masking tape around the tube will help you make a nice straight cut. File the end and around the outside edge to eliminate sharp burrs.

Why do you need to remove the bevel? Is it because it reduces/distorts the i.d. of the post due to the original manufacturing?

Exactly. The bevel doesn't just taper the outside of the tube, it makes the ID way too small. I took off just enough to fit the other post.
