Reducing Tailpiece for Vintage Bathroom Sinks
Crane and Standard both used an oddball tailpiece on many of their wall-hung and pedestal sinks. It’s actually a reducing tailpiece, necking the 1 1/2″ 27 threads per inch fine thread outlet down to 1 1/4″. This part was commonly used from 1915 or so until the early 1970’s.
We used to be able to get these commercially, but we ran into an undersize thread issue that the manufacturer refused to address. After many go-arounds, we finally gave up on the manufacturer and decided to make these tailpieces ourselves. We went with stainless steel rather than brass, so these will never fail.
