    I bought a 20"long 3/8"OD x 3/8"OD stainless steel faucet supply line and it turns out I didn't need it. Since most household faucet supply lines are 3/8"OD by 1/2" IPS, I was wondering if there is an adapter than could "covert" this hose to 3/8"x1/2"IPS to where I can use it around the house? If not, where could I use this supply line?

    I wouldn't be surprised if you could find adapter(s) that would work. HD has a pretty wide selection that I am aware of and there are likely other places as well. Thing is though, you might end up with more expense in adapters that saving the supply line is worth.

    Any 3/8" x "something?" adapter will convert it to whatever you need to make it useful.
