Copper fittings?

Unread postAuthor: Slugfoot » Wed Nov 08, 2006 1:58 am

Not that it's urgent or anything but I was wondering if anyone had come across any "Y-shaped" copper fittings on their internet rummagings. I have so far been unable to find any. Perhaps they don't exist. This would be a pity as they would be quite useful, I think.
I'd be grateful if fellow forum users could let me know of any they find........thanx chapz.

I haven't seen any, the closest I've seen is an Y-shaped threaded nickel plated brass fitting, in the air section of the hardware store. The largest size had 3/8" female threads.

Ok, thanks guys.

Hotwired, those 45* branch tees sound like they may have potential.....I don't suppose you can remember where you saw them by any chance?

I know you can get them in DWV styles. Thoes can hold pressure but have a shorter socket length.

I have been informed you can get them definiatly in commpression not sure about endfeed or solder ring??? bare in mind i'm in the UK - they would probably be found within Boiler manufacturers as they use odd fittings for inside there boilers - so check them out, don't know what they are over in the US mind!!!!

Yup, I'm UK too. I'm not after the compression fitting type really. I have seen those so thanks anyway. The idea is to use "Y"or"y" joints to save room and tidy-up my copper gun (or any more I make in future). Not that it looks too shabby anyway and it works just fine.

PS I'll get some photos up when I've sorted out the tap-loader and bipod. Since it's my first gun and I'm quite proud of it!

pps Thanks for the "boilermaker suggestion", I'll check it out.
