I looking for a 1938 heater shutoff valve. please I'm positive that I purchased one last year but now I can't find it. The one that I think I bought wasn't exactly the original accessory though. It had a T handle and the original had a hex head top.

I remember you buying one too lol. That's how the conversation about T-handle vs Hex came out. I've never seen a hex one. Thought of modifying the T-handle one if I could even get a picture of a hex handle style.

I've never seen a hex head style. Is it basically a brass hex nut in place of the T-handle? Does it look the same as the one that John posted above other than the t-handle?

There are two hex heads. The center for the shut off valve and a lokc nut to prevent the valve from turning.

If I find time I will send you a picture.

Woops my mistake. I just looked in the 38 Accessories book and it was the hex head one. Mine was the
t handled one. Now I have to search again. Darn.

We are looking for the earlier version that does not have the "T" shaped handle, just a hex head and jam nut instead of the "T" handle.
