    I need some help finding a metal Barbed Tube Fitting that will reduce a 3/4" hose down to 3/8" hose. It's a big jump, so it's been difficult for me to find one.

    So far, I have only been able to find this solution:

    3/4" to 1/2" then 1/2" to 3/8"

    (Those came from this site: McMaster-Carr)

    It's a rough compromise, but it might work...

    Any pipefitters out there know if that's the best I could get?

    Also, just figured out that brass fittings won't size up right with heater hose for some reason.

    1/2" heater hose does not fit a 1/2" brass barb...

    I guess a standard unit of measurement isn't standard.

    You might be able to jury-rig some PVC fittings (landscaping department), but it would look shitty.

    That looks like it would work. Thanks for thinking around that one!

    Great idea. That stuff should be found along side the air compressor hardware in hardware stores (or HF).
