    We can get them in Baltimore

    tell us where you are, and someone may know who carries them.

    This is for a steam system, right?

    Actually I don't need them now. I just finished piping in that Gorton menorah we had talked about =) A 45^ off the end of the main feeding to the dry returns would have needed them but I used two hexagon bushings instead and it creates no problem as I had thought it might since the angulation does not restrain the condensate return (it moves 45^ down). Had I used the eccentric reducer it would have looked better but costed more money. I used a 2-1 1/2 then a 1 1/2-1. A 2-1 bushing may have had too steep of a lip after the interior threads and created a little puddle. I used a 2x2x3/4 tee at each end of the main but had to plug one (couldn't return it to the purchasee) and ran a 1x1x3/4 between the 90^ at the main and the 90^at the return. That plugged tee had no way of having a vent off it since it butted up almost right against a cross beam. Thanks for the response Frank.

    And I thought this thread all meant

    that the beloved Weezbo was going on a diet.

    Well . . . . .Right now where the boiler was, there is no boiler so until a boiler gets there we won't know just yet, but I say it will happen in about a week or two. =)

    Wista to those in Bawstin but Woosta to those in Worcester. Kwincey to me though =) I always wondered how they came up with the name "Braintree", kinda scary.

    Insult? ;)

    Sometimes the things that work best are those that run a tad off center, just like Weez.
