Where to get specialized faucet adapters

Has anyone found a source (online, local plumbing supply store) where you get specialized faucet adapters?

I just purchased a new faucet for our kitchen sink.  At Lowes it looked like the spray head adapter could be replaced with a faucet adapter to attach a garden hose to the faucet.  However, when I installed the sink and then tried various adapters I had, it appeared to be non-standard.

So I contacted the vendor (Giagni), and was told that it was an M14 adapter, and after a little more prodding, was given "1/2-14NPSM-2A" as the adapter.  I was able to get a 13/16-27 adapter (available at Lowes or Home Depot) to screw in, but this did not work as the "-27" threads are too fine.  The spray head assembly threads are a lot coarser (maybe -20??).

Any way, does anyone have a resource where I might find an adapter to attach a garden hose to the faucet?  I need this for filling and cleaning the carboys and kegs.  I also need this for running my city water through a filter to remove chlorine.

thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Fermtech Makes an adapter for there products that will fit your needs i think.  It has the standard faucet threadins one one side, and on the other its has a hose thread, and the smaller threadings commonly used with home brewing(1/2 MPT i think)  I looked ont here website and couldnt find it, but my i got it at my LHBS for ~5 bucks.  Ill see if i can dig the specs out when i get home, or you could just email fermtech.
Cheers

I think the faucet the OP is talking about is one of those where the faucet pulls out on a hose and can switch to a spray pattern.  Those do not have the standard faucet thread with the aerator that unscrews for the Fermtech adaptor.

If getting the parts is impossible, consider putting a tee in the line under the sink for a garden-hose connection.

There are three standard 1/2" threads 1/2-13, 1/2-20, 1/2-28.  I am wondering whether you may really have a metric thread on your faucet, which would be a real PITA to get an adapter for (at least at a normal store).

VinS:
If you have the 1/2npt14 that means 1/2 national pipe thread 14 threads per inch . So your adapter needs to be 1/2npt14 to hose fitting. The m14 could also stand for 14 millimeter which could be the case.
