    Has anyone found a source for sweat adapters that are 1/2” BSPP (also known as G 1/2) male by 5/8” od copper?
    The difference as many of you know is that the BSPP thread has no taper and the thread is 55 degrees instead of 69 degrees. Someone must make them, but I suspect they do not give them away
    I have some very nice European faucets with this thread for inlets and outlets. I found high pressure corrugated union end connectors about 8” long with this thread, but on both ends, so I still want to get from the BSPP to US copper sweat in a single fitting.
    Anybody know where to get them?

    While I am asking, has anyone seen sweat couplings to adapt from US copper to metric copper?
