I recently started plumbing my garage with 1/2 copper type L pipe. I have 3 spots where I have "t's" (see attatched pic) But I cannot find a reducer or fitting that will let me attatch my 3/8 female quick connect. Anyone out there know what im looking for? ive checked all my local hardware stores and have not found squat.. Thanks!

Should be a 1/2" copper sweat to 1/2" male pipe adapter

Male Pipe Thread Wrot Copper Adapter 3/8" pipe thread to 1/2" copper pipe. Not a common store item, may have to order online.
I checked all the home depot/ menards type stores in town, no one sells a 1/2 sweat to 1/4 npt thread adapter that I could find.

In the 80's I installed the Air system for a factory. 2 40 hp compressors, 3 inch main lines, branched down to 3/4 inch drops, the home center stores do not handle a lot of fittings you can find at a big wholesale plumbing supplier.

I too found it at home depot, but since you can't, just go to any plumbing store.
