    Hi SD. Did you made provision for airflow? My compressor gets quite hot.

    Hey Silent,
    Can I ask what fitting you started with to put into the end of the compressor? I'm guessing 1/4 bsp? Then what did you cut it to, to get it to fit?
    I'm trying to do something similar and put a pressure valve off a tee piece and couldn't find anything to fit. Grr

    Thank you
    Mick

    Cheers mate, I have seen the manifolds but only in npt. I need to be able to get out of the compressor first, either npt or bsp to be able to attach one. I've already been to a couple of fitting shops including Enzed and it's not a common thread which is annoying.

    @ strex I think looking at the compressor they have used a bolt thread from the head through the handle to
    the nitto fitting,,,,, either 10mm x 1.25 or 8mm x 1.25,,,,,,,,, Sounds right to me.
    Are you mounting it as well ,if so Id remove the handle, but thats just me.lol

    I did originally have the handle off 3dogs but that was a different thread again. So on that one handle there were 3 different threads. Talk about making it confusing. Haha
