Need a fitting to screw onto the bottom of a fancy European fawcett that is
1/4" compression thread. It needs to screw onto the male thread of the
fawcett and into the female thread of a 3/8 compression flex hose.
Alternately, a flex hose that has 1/4" comp fitting on one end and 3/8" on
the other would work, but I can't find either item. Nor can my local
plumbing supply company.
Trying to aviod having to replace the compression valves with 1/4" versions,
from the current 3/8" units.
Anyone have a source for either of the above?
He said both sizes were compression. Just screw the nuts off and set the
I think Johnstone has that size compression reducer. Give me a yell (off
group) if you can't get one. Sounds like you couldn't, ---/O-O

Do what Mark said. I wondered why this didn't occur to you already,
except that you said 3/8" compression "hose." If you meant that you have
plastic or stainless steel supply tubes, then they'll have to be replaced
with soft copper or PB.
Thanks for the reply.
Don't want to use copper because of location. Faucet is above heavily used
cabinet, don't want to run risk of solid line being "worked loose" by
movement of items in cabinet. Flex hose is a better risk.
Problem solved by using 1/4 to 3/8 compression adapter with 1" piece of
copper off bottom of faucet. 3/8 flex hose connected to adapater from
valve, all is good.
Basically, went with Mark's suggestion, just modified it to suit.
Thanks for the ideas.
