In response to Re: 1924 Pedestal Sink-Chain stay hole 1"--Enough?
I removed the chain stay last night. The hole is one inch in diameter. Is that enough for a mixing spout?

: 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.
