Sourcing weld-in oil tank nubs and fittings + other fab bits

Hello all. I am trying to find strong weld-in flared fittings for an oil tank (not the AN type) that will use conventional rubber hoses and clamps. I need them to be of a good gauge steel because I am having them welded to a pipe from a crash bar.

They wont be exposed or anything(weled on the inside) but they cant be wimpy. I want the setup to be strong.

Do you guyz know where I can find these bits?

Hopefuly from a place that also sells a lot of other things I might need.

Thanks!

A quick search turned up a company called AP Air that has that kind of stuff. Never used them, but they have what you're talking about. For other fab stuff, I've used weld tab and their stuff is pretty good. Mostly though, the have just tabs and thread fittings and whatnot.
