Default Copper pipe nuts and tails

I'm looking to make up some pipework, cylinder drains and gauge glass drain, this winter. I'm wondering where to get the nuts and solder nipples from? I've had a good look round and couldn't see any on heritage steam although I saw the copper pipe.

gauge glass is 3/4" BSP but not sure on the draincocks just now.

Try The Complete Automobilist . Although this is a vintage car supplier , they do have old fashioned pipe fittings , for fuel and oil systems . I got some useful fittings to fit pipes into my old pre-pipe cylinder drains . Other wise try Midlands Power and Motion's catalogue , all on line . They do the copper pipe as well .
