    I have a 1" x 18" long shut-off valve for sale. This valve has been sitting on my shop shelf for a couple of years and I haven't used it. I'm asking $50.00 for it.

    Doesn't that operate with a key? Is a strap wrench used to remove the cover to the handle?

    Ya, a square key will open and close the valve. I'm not sure if I'm on the same page with you about the strap wrench though.

    I haven't seen one close up in years. I was thinking the cone-shaped portion was a threaded cover, but maybe not.

    I think the device was named Eliminator, when it was first on the market.

    that cone comes off rather easily, usually by hand. the actual shut-off is a square fitting.

    i like them, prefer the Watts frost-free.

    The cone does not have to be removed to operate the shut-off, however, the key slides into the front end of the cone.

    WTF? this ain't e-bay. How many more of his "left overs" are we going to get threads to read about?

    Jwingfield should post that bucket of nipples he had a couple months ago.

    Interesting thing about the valve is the silvery part that threads into the brass tee - it's a copper sweat fitting that is machined to act as a valve seat, and then gets plated.
