      We are installing a new hot water heating system using old hot water and steam radiators. Most have been
      good but the last few steam radiators have had rusted nipples. We are looking for nipples of 1 3/4″ to 1 11/16″ to make the radiators work in our system. Any ideas as to where we can find these nipples in the Massachusetts area.
      Thank you very much, Brooke Thomas

      If they are true “steam” radiators without the upper passage, they will not work with a hot water system.
