    Looking to tee 1/4" tube off 3/8" run. My background is in pipeline work so I automatically think of a reducing tee but I'm not seeing one in AN fittings? I know that I can use a AN824 tee and a reducer.

    What you want is a -6 tee and a -6 to -4 tube end reducer. Parker makes them in steel, but not that small. Maybe someone else?

    Yes, those are available in aluminum but I was hoping for a reducing tee.

    I've never seen reducing tees in industrial hydraulics.

    No standard AN reducing Ts. There are some but they are custom made by manufacturer. Your AN824-6D and an AN894-6-4D are a good option.
