1/4" BSP Bronze hex. nipples

I'm after some 1/4" BSP hex. nipples in bronze to replace some iron fittings on a boiler. Any suggestions for a source. Yes I know I could make them, just being idle! There was a web site which did them down to 3/8"BSP but no smaller.

Have you tried a plumbers merchant? Even most modern fittings are still BSP.

I would think you will have to make them as plumbers merchants type fittings are usually brass, which for steam boiler work are not recommended.
