Help with fittings / pipe

Unread postAuthor: Hubb » Tue Aug 21, 2007 8:45 am

I have looked and looked but can't seem to find dimensions on metal fittings. I am looking for brass, copper, and galv pipe and fittings.

brass fittings up to 1/2"
copper pipe and fittings up to 2"
galv or steel pipe and fittings up to 2"

Any help is appreciated.

Have you tried going to Home Depot and measuring the fittings?

Okay. I'll give you that one.

I'm working on an application to make scaled diagrams of cannons and, since some cannons use these types of fittings, their deminsions are needed for me to complete the program.

In other words, I need a lot of information and was looking for an easier way of obtaining this information than going to Home Depot with a tape measure and staying there for several hours.

I kept persistent at this and finally found all the stuff I need except for the brass fittings. Any help is still appreciated.

in plumbing brass dosn't use it's own standards .
usually it adopts others, and adapts others also .

copper into brass into iron eliminates the dissimilar metal reaction that happens when you put copper into iron .

http://www.muellerindustries.com/wudfs/currbf.pdf

is a link for brass fittings..generic
ips and copper

http://www.muellerindustries.com/
is the homepage

http://www.meritbrass.com/submittals.html

is a page with a bunch of pdf's
"brass fittings" includes a whole bunch of standards

http://www.meritbrass.com/

the homepage

http://www.ferguson.com/ManufacturerLin ... inks.shtml

more links to plumbing manufactures than you'll need, ,probably
