Stainless crosses...morewine. $6.50 but out of stock. Not expected to be back till August. The local graingers has them as well, but I believe its twice as much, you can search their catalog.

Purge valves - ebay is the only place I have found. Search there, and you can find the 1/8" ones, which should work. Fine the 1/8" to 1/2" bushings on ebay as well.

I tried finding the purge valves on ebay but didn't see anything like you have, maybe I'm overlooking them.

The trick is to pick Business and Industrial as a subcategory. That eliminates all the automotive stuff.

+1 I paid a bit more than $30 each for my 1/2" purge valves new. It's about $10 each cheaper to go ebay. R&R Fittings may have some too. As for the stainless crosses, Budrock knows a local place that sells them for less than B3. Call him and ask. I think he told me it was in New Iberia, which isn't too far from you considering how far you commute to work. :wink:

I made an offer and got them at $12.50 each, $44.00 for 3 shipped.

Yikes!!! Those are 1/8" purge valves.I'm not sure if you can get a single bushing to take you from that to 1/2". You may need to double up on the bushings which would end up costing you nearly as much as three brand new 1/2" purge valves. Good luck finding 1/8" FPT X 1/2" MPT bushings. I'm sure they exist, somewhere . . .
