1/4" nipple brazed/welded.
The disconnect, is it ARO or Industrial?
I could put a 3/8 to 1/4 hex bushing in, then it is completely changeable to any combinations. It can be Schrader or any disconnect the builder wants.
Seem like a better option to me.
The coupling is industrial. You could put in a bushing, but the original is simply a galvanized 1/4 inch pipe nipple. Well it was galvanized until I got it to brazing temperature.
The schrader is simply a tire valve with the rubber cut down some and then put in a brass 1/4 inch pipe cap and screwed on. With the rubber, no tape or other sealer is needed.
When I went to Arlington with the full size, they used another coupler so using their compressor was a mater of simply borrowing a fitting to fit. I later bought one. They are under $2 for the male. I keep a selection in my bag for traveling.
