Hi All

I am in the process of permanently mounting my Bushranger Max Air compressor under the seat.

I am looking for recommendations for an online supplier of fittings - just a few elbows, pipe, valves and 'quick release' fittings required.

Prefer a catalogue where I can see what I'm ordering rather than just descriptions - I don't know the right names for half this stuff.

Any recommendations?

G'day Tim

When I piped up my workshop for compressed air recently, I found most of the stuff was now 'plastic' (not sure really what is is, but not metal). Got all the stuff I needed from a local tool supplier, including the compressor.

Different situation, I know, but similar requirements, and very easy to work with, if you live near a major town or city. I have also bought a number of quick release couplings and fittings from ebay, plenty of suppliers there.

Good luck, Dave

Gday
Try Pirtec or Enzed. Both have catalogues and all plastic and brass fittings. Plastic are good as you trim hose to length and push it home in the fitting.

Hi Tim,

When I plumbed up my ARB compressor up I originally used the blue plastic hose with pushin fittings. The problem is, the compressed air gets so hot that the plastic fittings go soft and fail. I have now used SS fittings and pipe for the first few feet to overcome the problem.

Cheers

Captain
