      Hey 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
