I have seen some small copper fittings in my ace shop... You could find a supplier near you... Mcmaster always has the stuff you need :wink: but I am not sure how expensive the shipping would be to england... i can find most 1/2 copper fittings in my local homedepot so you might jsut have to do some searching :roll:

good luck

That could work, and you would use a plug to close the back, rather than a cap. The plug (Ideally hex head) would provide more material for the threads for the pilot to bite into (if you tapped them yourself) than a cap, which you would use if you went with male threads.

If you wanted a pre-threaded end plug, you could use a bushing.
