Supplier of BSPP parts in US?

Unread postAuthor: JDP12 » Mon Dec 10, 2012 12:26 pm

I'm thoroughly sick of trying to make piston valve housings out of crappy NPT threaded parts... Is there a good supplier of BSPP parts inside the US?

EDIT: Or someone willing to ship me a select list of BSPP parts for cheapish?

I'm sick of crappy tolerances, not being able to thread parts backwards, inconsistent thread depth( whereas BSPP always threads all the way in)..

Given the rarity of BSP parts in the US and their corresponding high price, I would say that eBay is your best bet, even with shipping costs it will most likely be the best deal. All Chinese fittings I've ever bought from eBay had BSP threads.

ebay.co.uk will also show you plumbing supplies from the UK which might also be worthwhile.
