I bought this to replace the piece of junk "1/2 to1/4 Anderson Metals Brass Threaded Pipe Fitting" that I ordered a week ago for $5.68. What a drastic difference with this NIGO 1/2 to 1/4 bushing for $5.89!!! This NIGO bushing is high quality with every part of it beautifully machined and perfect threads. The brass has a hefty feel to it compared to that garbage Anderson fitting. So for an extra 21 cents you can go from junk to excellent quality with this NIGO bushing.
