Lurking around here I saw this corny part in a post...Apparently it's from an older corny design that's hard to get.

I searched the keg suppliers but no one seems to have this.

I want to use this to repair a stripped off post by drilling it out, this looks like it will fit the bill.

Anyone know where I can get these?

You are just looking for a beer out dip tube? If so, just buy a gas in dip tube and the find some plastic tubing of the right ID that will fit over the dip tube and then cut to the proper length.

I did this for a corny that I use as a "grant" after the boil. It holds the hot wort while it recirculates/chills. I wanted to increase the flow rate so I wanted a larger diameter dip tube and that was my solution

Actually, one of the posts on my corny stripped. I was able to clean the threads in the fitting. I want to drill out the post and replace it. I don't weld and paying someone to do it might be cost prohibitive.

I use it as a secondary now but could use the keg real estate!
