leaking fittings

I have a bunch of large couplings I bought cheap at the Ford Mustang Factory Closing parking lot sale In california. They used 3/4 hoses and are somewhere up on a shelf. just too bulky at the air tool or paint gun end. But they were good industrial quality.

The Airmax slogan / buzzword was "Pneumatic Energy", and they had it right.

Many of us don't worry too much about leaking air ... because air is free, right?

Well, if you start thinking in terms of "pneumatic energy" you soon realize that you are converting electric power to compressed air.

The compressor itself has replacement and maintenance costs, and we all know the electricity to run the compressor isn't free either.

Airmax also has a great line of those safety couplers, FRL's, urethane coiled hoses, etc.

Lubricators for air tools is one thing, but having ANY oil or silicone or even water present in air that is used for painting is a very bad thing.

NEVER use an air hose that has been used with air tool lubricant, or you will have a mess of fish-eyes in your paint job.

Sorry to dig up an old topic, but I'm trying to pick a replacement for my Milton Industrial connectors, and I'm looking at Milton-V. The pictures in this thread look a lot like the Milton-V, and they also look a lot like these from Grainger:


Which are listed as "Global Style High-Flow" for their type.

Do all of these look like the same? I'm having trouble finding the V fittings locally, if these are V then I can at least get them at Grainger as opposed to only mailorder, which is something I would like to avoid.

They style you are looking for is called out a few different ways:
High Flow
HVLP style
7.2 size

The plug pictured Grainger one you showed is made of aluminum, stay away from that, it wears very quickly look for harden steel product, Prevost make a high quality plug,

This plug will flow at 70 SCFM. You can get then at Sherwin Williams Automotive, Snap-On, Matco or any automtive paint supply.
