Trying to figure out what I'd need to connect a new slop sink to an existing brass/copper drain. I'd prefer not to cut for a rubber coupler, so trying to see if there is anything that could potentially thread on so I can use the existing p trap.

Can't do anything in the wall in this section so need to make it work from wall out.Rip it out and pvc ftw. Don’t waste time or money.

Cut copper pipe were it joins copper 90, use fernco coupling to adapt 1.5pvc j trap. Done.
I did this for one of my drains. It's still easy to take apart to clean out.
Yeah, I may like that sweat slip joint best. It's just a laundry sink so I don't care what it looks like, but just don't trust the Fernco stuff as much. They always look like a hack repair. I also found a double sided 1 1/2 Sharkbite that should work. I did 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 slip joints in the bathrooms, but those are all moved to PVC. This section of the house has concrete under the floor by garage and can't replace existing piping here easily, especially after tiling already.One more reason to cut it and add a slip joint. There is no way to ensure the drain of the sink will line up over the trap.
