    I just bought several 3/4 x 3/4 x 3/4 in brass or bronze (don't remember which) at Home Depot. I didn't notice if they had any 3/4 x 3/4 x 1, though.

    I have found brass pipe fittings at hardware stores before. If they don't stock them, they usually have a book they can order stuff for you. I have also bought stuff from Auchobon Hardware [ maybe not spelled right ] and Gilroy's, which is the online site for Do-It-Best hardwares...bought lots of stuff from both of them. Here is a link for Amazon...

    Good luck, Jerry....

    There great! I use several a year. Yes, I could bush anything into existenance
    but why when there is a propper fitting for it? I use them for water services. I
    don't care if there is a "cheaper" way. My way will last 100 years, maybe more.

    May be China quit making that fitting. Right now if China stopped importing goods, we would be in a world of hurt to find ANYTHING. Might still find a computer or two from Indonesia but hardware would be rare indeed. Almost all our industries have move overseas including our defense contractors to a small extent. We would have to start from scratch and it might take years to make a product again here if the world turned against commerce to USA.
