The thing is, QEV's are specialist pneumatic components, so unless you actually have a pneumatics place in your area they tend to be ordered by mail or web.

All the places I know that sell QEV's in the UK have a few massive warehouse locations and ship out all over from there.

No. They aren't meant for general public use with tools and so on.

They're for pneumatic cylinders which means industrial use. It needs to be a specialist pneumatics place or a we-sell-everything place like mcmaster.

This probably doesn't help you much but I'll give it a go; If you have Granger (sp?) in the area then they carry them. They are basically just like McMaster. Granger can also be nicer because they have more warehouses (that you can actually walk up to and buy the stuff) than McMaster. They're just super awesome cause theres one right next to my house.

Told ya they weren't cheap.

If you're that way in mind, yes, but it would not be good for Mr. Performance.

Why can't you go bigger? Pipe in Aussie is cheaper then NZ so be grateful :)

Yeah but you guys make more, unfortunately. :(

What's your barrel size? Try to at least go a size up then your barrel with the piston housing(tee).

e.g 15mm barrel, 20mm tee housing. 20mm barrel, 25mm tee housing.

That's usually a good bet.
