Having Trouble Finding This Fitting

I have some of these floating around somewhere but of course when I need one they are nowhere to be found. I figured I would just purchase a few but I can't seem to find this item or a 1/4 by 3/4 MHT adapter ( as a solution to accomplish this with 2 fittings ). Any leads or suggestions for this are appreciated.

    Thanks very much , that is a little more than I was looking for , but it looks like the manufacturer does offer what I want. I'll contact Grainger and see if they can get it.

    Doesn't Webstone make all that stuff?
    I order isolation flanges and combination fill/purge valves from them all the time.

    I looked through the webstone site and did not see that specific drain valve , or close really. It looks like they have incorporated the drain vale feature into the castings on many products.

    It looks like Victaulic has one . Seems extreme for something that should be a hardware store item.

    You're looking to install this on your MegaSteam's sight glass, right?

    10-4 , on the sight glass. I was wondering if they would get mad if I porta-banded the unused door ear off. I also use these fittings at work for dry cooler venting emergency stuff , I have some of this coming up.

    Cool , appreciate the info. Tomorrow I'm resolving the draft issue , changing the pump ( I have the warranty replacement ) , getting my combustion numbers , and folding up the chain vise. Oh and I received my pressure gauge today , kind of curious as to what I'm operating at.

    I did see that one but I'm not sure who sells it.

    Watts has them also. Do a google search and online suppliers will pop up. Put in a name and part number.

    10-4 on the google , the Dahl search did not reveal anyone selling that item , only a few company links regarding it.

    I was thinking that the ones I have stashed somewhere are Watts , but I was not able to find it on thier site. I'll give it a closer look or contact them. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Man I stayed up way too late looking at controllers , there is some cool stuff out there ( even for my budget ).
