Mine came with my air compressor. Sears has a good selection online and they usually have some in the store.

TCP Global has about the best prices and good stock. I just bought everything from them to put quick connects on my hoses and air brushes. Got adapters for the different brand brushes so all have the same connection now.

I just check out the sites.
Those are some pricey little buggers!

Aww come on Mark. Everybody knows you've got enough money to burn a wet mule.

Are you kidding? I'm still trying to save up enough to dry out my last wet willy!
I was thinking it would be convenient to be able to disconnect my brushes from one hose, instead of the three I know have draped over my workbench.
But, at $14 a Plaster of Paris minimum, I'll just put in an inline ball valve, and live with the hoses festooning my workbench.
I should have done that when I built my original manifold, but...
"Too soon old, too late smart".

See if any of these will work for you Mark. They range in price from $5 to over $25.

I think I'm going to put a shutoff in front of my manifold, and just live with the hoses.
Did I mention that, aside from being cheap, I'm lazy

Had no idea. Haven't seen you at any of the meetings.

Mark, I've been using the same quick disconnect airbrush hose for more years then I can remember and its the best money I ever spent.....I've got a couple of male connectors for every brand of airbrush I own and its a breeze to switch brush to brush.....Not having several hoses always hanging on the bench ready to tangle up, made the investment more then worth it to me....lol....I'm as tight as a tick when it comes to spendin money, but in this case I think its money well spent.
