Small Ball valve

Unread postAuthor: shud_b_rite » Sat Jun 23, 2007 10:33 pm

This probably isn't worth starting a new topic for but I'm really stuck with finding this part. Where can i get a ball valve that is identical to the one's built into an air compressor? On my compressor it looks like a 1/4 ball valve and has 2 male threads, the same threads that are used on blowguns/tire inflater's etc.

I live in New Zealand and I cant find anyone that supplies these ball valves (I'm probably just looking for the wrong type), the only way i know to get one is to nick one off an old compressor. Anyone know where I can get a small ball valve like this? It needs to be the same threads that are used on air tools.

Ahh yes thank you, that is exactly what I need. I wouldn't want to buy it online from a non-nz domain. As soon as I searched "mini ball valve" in Google it found what i need, before I was searching "1/4 inch ball valve" that didn't find any useful results.

Thank you trae08. I think this topic should be deleted (mods) since it is quite useless.
