Just though I'd share pictures of these very beautiful black iron 1 1/2 " LHT npt plugs for my wall rads I got in the mail today. I think the "D" might be for my first name =)

    I have the same problem at a job thats going to require rearranging of a LOT of wall radiators, 1-1/2" just as you have.

    Also looks like they can be tapped for 1/2" NPT eccentric outlet for steam traps. Just like the original outlets. Did you have a local shop do these (I'm guessing not since they came by mail)?

    And for the truly absolutely impossible to find part, here is the 1 1/2 left hand plug in nothing less than stainless steel (the austenitic type if you must know)

    I include the picture.

    Thanks, Daniel - D, for the happy endorsement you are giving those cute plugs and thanks for your business.

    Thanks everyone too for the compliments.

    This revealed more info on the austenitic stainless steel that you mentioned. It truly is quite strange and interesting.

    Just looking for holes now

    It figures Austin Powers would wear this sort of bling bling. Shiny and spotless, plus it screws to the left.

    Thanks again for the compliments, I'm very happy you all like the plugs.

    Anytime, anything

    For talking about steam, you're never pestering, and it's always a treat hearing from you Gerry.

    I rather think I make one heck of a big eccentric myself, but adding a plain 1/2 or 3/4 offset hole on those left hand plugs is an easy option. I also still have a local supply of exotic fittings but I still had the grandest headache finding a batch of 2x1/2 elbows. (just because I wanted no reductions in there)

    Always happy to answer your call.
