Kobalt Inflator Gun

Unread postAuthor: VH_man » Fri Jun 13, 2008 10:31 am

Well, i bought a Kobalt inflator gun today for use in my new cannon (hehe its comingggg) and i thought the threads for the "nose" and the pressure guage were NTP. sadly, however, they are most definetly NOT. does anyone know what i can use to attach this to 1/4 inch NTP? (im looking for a plug for the pressure guage area also, although i can just use epoxy)

heres a pic just in case you need visuals....

if it was me i would cut off the end and clamp on a 1/4" hose barb and take off the guage and take the gun to a auto parts dealer so they can determine the threads.

Are the threads on the pressure gauge 1/8"? That's what all of the gauges I have are.

I have several of those too, and the gauge threads aren't 1/4" or 1/8".

The gauge is pretty crappy anyway so I just epoxied up the hole.

I didn't mean it was inaccurate, it's just weakly made from plastic and stuff. And gets in the way a lot.
