I just ran a new gas line for my stove
. Both ends are 3/8" female flares, because this is the US, and that's just what everything is. The problem is my stove
was manufactured in the UK, so the inlet is a 5/16" compression
Where on Earth can I get an adapter? West and Defender of course have nothing but 3/8", since that's the standard size in the US. Plumbing
supply place looked at me like I was from another planet when I said 5/16" McMaster Carr, who stocks 1000s of parts
didn't have it.
After the ordeal I went through, just to find a 3/4" elbow
for my head
, I'm thinking buying
a new stove may be easier than finding this part.
