Default For Sale - For Sale - or trade - 3 three-piece SS ball valves

[edit] Since I can't find any interest in the welding route, I'm offering these up for sale or trade. I'd be happy to trade all 3 of these for 2 threaded 1/2" three-piece SS valves, or I can sell them for $12 each + shipping.

**************
Original post:

I recently bought some three-piece 1/2" ball valves off eBay. To my dismay, they turned out to be socket-weld, not threaded, despite my confirmation that they were threaded prior to purchase (see here for details).

Is there anybody here that'd be able to weld threaded fittings (or possible tri-clovers or camlocks) onto these for me? I don't trust my family-friend welder to do the job properly or quickly (or even comprehend what I need to have done).

Alternately, I'd like to trade these 3 socket-weld three-piece valves for 2 threaded three-piece valves. Any takers?

Can you get me some picts? If so, I'll take them for what you ended up having to shell out for them.
Thanks,
Walter

I'll post pictures tonight. Essentially, they look like normal 3-piece valves, there just aren't any threads inside the ends.

Sorry for the delay, everyone. Yes, they are still for sale. I have attached a picture of the non-threaded end. It's socket-weld.

A word of caution for anyone thinking about welding on a socket weld ball valve.
You have to disassemble the valve so that you do not destroy the seals.
20 years welding in case anyone wonders how I know.

Good advice. I however have welded tri clamp but weld ends onto five, 3/8" valves from Mcmaster in the past few months and have had no problems. I was not worried as the mcmaster valves came with extra seals.

I might be interested. What is the inside dimension of the socket?

The inside of the socket is 7/8".

These are 3-piece valves. When you take them apart, the seals comes off, so I imagine they'd be easy to weld to.
