Dran Plug

Post by mattbyrne » Fri Feb 17, 2012 8:56 pm

I'm down to the last few missing pieces on the restoration. One is the drain plug. I was thinking it was a 1" NPT plug would do the trick, but after a visit to the hardware store it appears it's not NPT. The actual hole measures about 1-1/4" across. Does anyone know where I can buy a t-handle plug with standard threads this big?

Don,

Yes that's what I'm looking for. Where can I buy one?

What model is that hardware from? Is the drain plug something you would sell or is for a project?

We had to have one cast from scratch. It is a straight thread and is machined to seal to the female side where it bottoms out.
