    ? convert push nipple to threaded on WM snug CIBB?

    Is there a way to convert the push nipple on middle sections of WM snug fit CIBB rads so that they can be used as end pieces.  I realize that I would have to use blocking for the feet.  Thanks  G

    Doing:

    Just because something might be possible to do, doesn't mean it is a good idea to try it.
    There is more than you have noticed about the end sections. They hold the rods that hold the sections together. They have a lot of tapping's for the feeds and the air vents. They also make a way to end the fins.
    I shouldn't say anything. Some people will try anything to find out it doesn't work.

    baseboard cast iron

    I was asking specifically about cast iron baseboard radiators.  With this info do you still think tap/dye is not the way to go?  The sections that I have already have an upper and lower hole to fit a push nipple.  Thanks. G

    In a pinch

    They can be tapped. Why do you want to do this is my question. I have had to due to freeze ups and needing to get the heat on as the end section is toast. I also have sections of New Weil and AmStan I will never get rid of just incase I need them for repairs.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.

    Charlie,
    I have numerous middle sections but no end sections.  I thought if there was a way to use the middles as ends it would save me buying new ends.  Just exploring my options. Thanks.  G
