1 1/4" PO drain
 
I recently puchased a copper undermount sink. When the plumber went to install the drain we discovered that the threads for the drain did not go up the pipe far enough. Apparently the lip of the sink is very thin. To compound the situation the drain is 1 1/4" oil rubbed bronze....not to easy to find. Any suggestions on a drain that is threaded all the way up? Quit Laughing....plumbing is not my strong point.

I'm assuming you're trying to attach a pop-up assembly for a lav to what's actually more or less designed to be a bar sink ?

Yes it is for a bar sink. The copper is so thin that there is not enough thread on the drain line to attach it. When you try to order one online it doesn't tell you whether there is more thread than normal. We've already been through 3 drains.

You need an old fashioned drain with a stopper.

The one in the top left, center, the P0002S might work, if its available in the proper finish. According to the 2007 price list, its not. The brand is "Sign of the Crab", google it and call them. You can ask them about dimensions on it and any finishes that might be special order.

Failing that, contact the sink manufacturer and see what they recommend.
