the wall of plumbing ? . . looking for quality brass slip nuts and fully pipe threaded strainers
is there a site as comprehensive as the wall is on steam and hydronics that deals with plumbing . . . and/or despite the low frequency of plumbing posts here maybe a few folks still remember the other side. used to have a mainstream connection to buy solid brass basket strainers that had an actual cut pipe thread rather than some imitation version of a cast thread that barely holds slip nuts nevermind throwing some tape on it and threading a female adapater on directly. and there were solid brass slip nuts to go with that were deep enough to catch more than a half thread and a heavy lower boss with flats and threads that had been cut carefully and deeply so the nut didn't go on and then slip off the threads as you brought to fully hand tight.
looking for manufacturers/models that fit and not to be disloyal but if there is a website where guys obsess about this kind of stuff the way we do about every btu in every heating job would be handy for these occasional quesitons.
