I need to replace my 3/8 NPT hoses I use for painting....

All I can find is 1/4 NPT these days. I use high flow fittings. Any consequence of stepping down to 1/4 NPT ends with high flow fittings? I think I read somewhere that the ID of these fittings are pretty similar which is why there are few manufacturers. Thoughts?

Try McMaster Carr for the fittings you need.. They carry lots of industrial parts and fittings..

Thanks for the McMaster Carr lead that was easy! Ordered a 75' 1/2" rubber hose with 3/8 NPT male ends.
