The center unit is just a chain stay for a rubber plug. It is too small for a mixing spout to pass through it. If you are adventurous, you could try drilling it to a larger size, using a carbide hole saw.

: I have an old pedestal sink with seperate hot and cold water. Between the seperate faucets is
: a metal knob of some sort. Can all three peices be removed and the sink converted to mixed
: temperature? I'll be calling professional plumbers in the next few days to install shutoff valves for this
: same sink and want to see about having this temperature mixing conversion done at the same time.
: Is there anything I should know regarding a possible conversion before I start talking price with these
: guys?

: I imagine a new pedestal sink would be the easiest thing to do, but I want to preserve as many original
: fixtures as I can.
