I have an old porcelain sink, and just bought a new faucet set for it. Everything seems ok - except that the center hole, for the spout, is too large for the new spout. The hole for the spout is 2 5/16" wide. Apparently spout holes in new sinks are smaller.
I don't want to buy a new sink if I can help it. Is it possible to find or have made some kind of adaptor/escutcheon plate that would make the new spout work in the old hole? It seems like it just needs two metal plates, one above, one below, with appropriate holes cut in, to allow the new spout to be installed. Obviously, ideally the top one would be chrome, to match...but I've had no luck so far, and would consider painting the top one white if necessary.
Anyone heard of anything like this?
