Source for Eccentric Bushings?

dennis53 Member Posts: 55
I'm looking for some eccentric bushings for use in setting up a new run of used radiators. 2" x 1.25" and also 1.5" x 1.25". Anyone have a source who will ship to Vermont? Many thanks,

    Another option is to use a reducing ell or street ell or reduce it vertically

    Searching for ECCENTRIC REDUCING COUPLINGS may give better results. Its easier to get an eccentric reduction in a horizontal run of piping with an eccentric coupling than with a bushing.

    I have an eccentric Aunt Dorothy, perhaps she has some bushings in her pantry! I'll call and ask her. ...Will get back to you on this!

    I have not seen eccentric bushing in a while. couplings are available but $$$. Reducing with an elbow as @mattmia2 is the simplest and best way if you can do it

    Thank you for all the suggestions. I was hoping to use bushings, but will probably end up going with couplings unless I can find a used radiator shop that might have some old bushings. Reducing on the vertical is not a possibility in this situation. Thanks again for the suggestions,
