Certainly looks interesting, one could solder a brass tee to the outlet, with a little work it could be a very good start to a hammer valve.

I'll have a look at those for sure.

Looks like the bleed screw is on the side


Thats not actually a bleed screw, its a hole that runs all the way through the adapter.. possible so the adapter can be unscrewed from the bottle

That's strange, the adapter is almost identical to mine except for that. Does gas vent out of the hole when the pin is depressed? Unless i'm missing something the pin valve would have to seal before this hole if, like you said, the hole runs through the middle of the adapter.

The unit the bottle screws into has an o ring that seals on the top just above the threads. As the bottle is screwed on, the adaptor presses the valve opening it after the o ring seals. I don't know what the small hole is on the side is for.

Again, for safety please don't try to unscrew the valve retainer in the top with CO2 in it. Release all the pressure before doing anything to the valve.

Does anybody know what pressure quick connect fitting are rated to? The type that are commonly used on airtools etc that just push and click in..
And also, I'm guessing the gauge on the regulator I linked earlier reads the pressure of the tank? Not the pressure being output to the system?
Can anybody confirm this.
Thanks

Hey they look pretty good..
Do they stop air from passing through whilst not connected? Expensive?

I just called up IFS down the road and asked for something like them.. They had a nitto fitting which was rated for 700psi, but it was $47 and $20 for the other side connection :(
Thats a bit out of my price range unfortunately.

When you say near impossible to connect, how hard are we talking? Like no chance I would get it off safely at 600psi?
