    Does anyone know where I can get a Copper US size 1/2L to UK 15mm solder ring straight reducer in the UK? I need to convert a US pipe size to a UK size, and I can’t find one anywhere. It’s for a gin still, so needs to be copper and not plastic.

    U.S 1/2"L is 0.625" outer dia = 15.875mm
    That should fit into a 15mm Yorks Capilliary fitting maybe with just a bit of fettling. Just as old U.K 1/2" does.

    Alternately a 15mm /compression fitting maybe with copper olives, that'll stretch.
