    I have come across steel versions of those with electrical conduit, specifically around explosion proof and rugged/environmental boxes and fittings. Hope that helps.

  4. Are they npt? They look like conduit bushings but those are a straight thread. If they're npt I'd like a source as well

    That's the right idea but the wrong size...I need 1/2" NPT to 1/8" NPT and 3/8" NPT to 1/8" NPT. At least I now know what they're called.

  13. Those sizes may be tough to find; as a worst-case, you could get solid brass plugs and drill/tap them for the 1/8" fittings. What you'll usually find in these sizes is ones with a hex head to allow tightening the outside thread separately. Trying to use the 1/8" to tighten both will usually result in a stripped 1/8" thread.

    I've used the hex-head types, installed them, then cut/ground the hex off. You might have to tap the 1/8" a bit deeper after doing this.

    you can get allen socket head brass pipe plugs.these will have the advantage of centering the hole that you drill thru the center.
