Where to get high flow fittings...??

I was wondering where you guys are getting these fittings, I was going to get the Harbor Freight ones but read they restrict airflow bigtime. Any advice...? thanks

Almost any major paint jobber will have them.

The best ones made are "Prevost" and the best money you will spend is the quick release that goes on the hose.

I have not seen a major paint store that did not have a Prevost supply.

I'm not sure I spelled the name right but that is how you say it.

Ditto, I heard about them being under $6, so I went and got 2 of them, should have gotten a few more, but a seriously low budget has stopped me, they're the 3/8 with the 1/4 npt fittings, huge difference, came with 3 male connectors, 2 of the npt's male and 1 female. I'll try and grab 2 more next week.

The brand name ones I saw were around $15. Just trying to help those on a low budget too

I got some at Lowes a while back. They were the same fillings that we had at the shop. It seems that they were about $7 for one male and one female. I thought about leaving them alone and seeing if they multiply. LOL

Are the ones at Wal-Mart high flow? Or are they
just the next size up, from 1/4" to 1/2"?
The larger 1/2" ones I looked at would have to be
adapted down to fit the standard 1/4" hose fitting.
They are made for 1/2" hoses, (which is probably
better to use anyway)

I got mine at sears, Lowes did not have them in my area. When you purchase them look at the size of the inner hole. Sears calls them industrial connectors.
They look physically big. !

Thanks... X

Heres what they came in. No adapter needed and they say 3/8 T on them. Also compatible with the HF Amflo CP7-RET, I just test fitted them now to make sure they fit and they do. Wich means they should also fit CH PA1011, Tru-Flate 12-602 and Milton 1809.


Its actually same diameter all the way through. Should be hi flo's.

Oh yeah, I accidentally bought an I/M connector. Found out its only for industrial fittings. On the back of the CH PA3001 box it shows it can be either:
I/M=Undustrial
T=Automotive
A=Aro
U=Universal

Also says interchangable with
Milton "H" style
Amflo Type "G"
Camel Type "G"
Truflate "T" style
