Blowgun question

Unread postAuthor: Mr.Russ » Sun Apr 15, 2007 1:11 am

Hey guys, i bought this new blowgun for my inline, and i found that only one side has 10mm threads, the other side is smaller.

the side that is too small needs to connect to my pipe, which i managed to fit over the 1/4" nipple(which was an effort) and i was just wondring if you suggest any way that i can connect the pipe to the small end of the blow gun, here are some pics

Whole Blowgun:

Big side:

Small side:

if you know of any ideas, dont hesitate to post them.

thanks.

i have that blow gun and i think its a 1/8'' thread, so you would need a 1/8'' nipple.

note- i said "i think"

check your air compressor, it will probably have 1/8'' threads somewhere on it. it is a very common size here in US, but i dont know about in Australia. your hardware store should have it because they had the blow gun. it wouldn't make sense for them to have something that had 1/8'' threads but no fitting, but i could be wrong.

what are the threads on blowguns classified as? (like BSP/NPT)

The threads on the big side look different from the threads on the little side. is this right?

No, they should just be 1/4 on one side 1/8 on the other.
