You can order them from BCarms and Mcmaster.

Just have a look around.

The JB welded ones are better in my opinion. They cost less, and Gives you the satisfaction of beating the system.... Somewhat.

I believe Ace Hardware sells 1/8" threaded schraders, if you live in the U.S.

If you get a coupling, you are going to need something to push the schrader valve pin to open it. Unless you want to pump the extra 70 psi it takes to open of course.. :roll:

Edit: oh damn, missed the point.. dont listen to me.

I'm not sure why threaded schraders started disappearing from the shelves of Lowes and Home Depot, they both used to carry them in the air tool/compressor section...5 or so years ago and before...

In the compressor or plumbing section of almost any hardware store, you can find scrader valves of 2 different varieties. The ones you find in the compressor section are usually only about 1/2 inches long, and have only one thread diameter. The ones in the plumbing section are about 1 inch long and come with 2 different types of thread.

No need to order them online or anything, just ask someone at the hardware store if you cannot find it.

I will warn you, you are most likely to only find the compressor variety, which is nothing bad, just that I personally dont like how small and fiddly thay are.

McMaster-Carr part number 8063K41 is what you are looking for.

I've never seen 1/8 inch threaded ones in stores but 1/4 inch threaded ones aren't uncommon.

If you're in Canada, I've seen them in either 1/4"npt and/or 1/8"npt @

NAPA, Princess Auto, Peavey Mart, Canadian Tire and Home Hardware.

Check near the air tools, the brass fittings section, and the plumbing section where you find parts for water wells (pumps and pressure tanks).

I buy my 1/8"npt schraders from Princess Auto.

I have checked at Home Depot several times with no luck, but that could just be me. Whatever you do, don't ask an employee, even if they work in the air compressors section. I made this mistake once, and confused the guy extremely badly. He then led me around the store for at least 8 minutes searching for it, and finally admitted to having no clue what it was.

I agree, never ask an employee for something obscure (to them), and under no circumstances do you try to explain what a pneumatic potato gun is to an ACE employee, those were some of the most awkward minutes of my life...
