    Do not

    hold your breath!

    The cost of the push-nipps and labor to R&R will likely exceed the cost of new asian made equals.

    The potential for leaks is also a formidable consideration IMO

    push nipples

    A-1 antique radiators? They are in Somerville MA.

    I do mostly radiant heat but I have read about this company before here. It is at www.heatinghelp.com/newsletter.cfm?ld=20
    or just look them up they were on This Old House, and Boston Globe Magazine.

    If you contact them maybe you can get some from them.

    Look for STEAMHEAD on this site. I think he knows where to get them made.

    when you put them together. They WON'T LEAK!
    Take a sample to a small job-shop machine shop if you can't find any pre-made. They can build them, but for how much? A CNC lathe should make short work of it.

    to clarify

    use black (or red -- I use red) between the sections -- not on the nipples! It really does work.
