 Drain for Vintage Sink. Sink has a 2 3/4 hole
Author: bharper (MO)

Need help finding a drain for a 1942 wall mount cast iron sink. The drain hole is 2 3/4 inches. I am unable to find one - can someone help or suggest an alternative. Thanks in advance. Barbara

How long does the shank of the drain need to be? This one uses 2" IPS threads and the flange is 3 3/8" diameter. Does it need to have overflow holes?

Thank you for posting. No there is no overflow. Just the hole in the bottom and two faucet holes at the top.

Google "SKU: 15-4061 Category: Sink Drains and Traps" and you will see the vendor.

Oversized Utility Drain Assembly?? Ordered it and received it today - doesn't fit = too small.
Thanks. I talked with a local sink guy - he thinks it is an intuitional sink or maybe a one-off utility sink.
No manufacture marks. Only a date stamp and some numbers. Might have to just give up and go with another sink.

What is too small? The rubber washer diameter?

It's a bit challenging. You can contact antique plumbing suppliers or can opt for custom fabrication.
