Air Hose Adapter for Paasche 3/8" Female Coupling to 1/4" Male Coupling

Recommended Posts

After 27 years my old air compressor finally bit the dust around two weeks ago. I'm looking for a new adapter since my old hose is a 3/8" female coupling which will not fit the new air compressor's 1/4" male fitting. I have been searching all the local hardware stores and the web with no luck so far. Any suggestions? This really shouldn't be a big deal, but I am trying to finish my Monogram F-80.

 

Many thanks,

 

Mark

Hi Mark,

 

As far as I know, most of the newer compressors have a 1/8" BSP male fitting, and the Paasche hose has a 1/4" BSP female. Your airbrush itself, if its like my Paasche H model, should have an 1/8" BSP male fitting on it. What I ended up doing with mine was to put the old Paasche hose in storage and get a Master Airbrush quick disconnect fitting for the airbrush:

Then you just get a new airbrush hose with 1/8" BSP female fittings on both ends. Having a quick disconnect mounted directly to the airbrush is pretty awesome...you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.

Just a follow up, I was in Coast on Friday to pick up some fittings for my Paasche air eraser. Took the staff about 5 minutes to hook me up with a quick release for both ends of the Paasche hose and get it connected to my Tamiya/Iwata hose. I wanted a much longer hose so I could use this thing as far away as possible from any painting that I am doing!
