33758RE: [Distillers] Re: So, how about a 1.5in column?
- Jan 2, 2006Hey Starch.
I just went through this same situation. If you are in the States, go to a
website called - www.plumbingsupply.com. I purchased both 2 inch and 3
inch copper pipe and they have a 3 inch to 2 inch reducer which I could find
nowhere. They are a little pricy, but you get exactly what you want. Hope
this helps. Michael
