    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me if there's a copper version of this 4 way PVC fitting?

    I'm looking for 1/2" or 3/4" fittings like this for a furniture project, but so far, I've only been able to find 4 way copper cross tees like this where the intersection is perpendicular:

    Or side outlet 90s that are only 3 way.

    It's an odd question, but thought someone here would know for sure.

    Thanks!

    no, but you can make one if you have skills

    take a tee, and a coupling, cut the coupling in half, silver solider it on the side of the tee

    That looks like it could be for a commercial sink. Question... when you brazen like that do you still use silver solder? And how much surface connection do you have? With a regular fitting when you braze you have a space for the silver to fill. How does that work in this situation?

    That's only copper to copper and not copper to brass correct?
