The only QEV's I have seen are from bellpro. But im pretty sure inonickname already suggested that to you. Your best bet is probably a chance find on ebay :?

Firstly, is there a particular reason you're looking for that kind of QEV?

Secondly, not to be too critical, but "Gay" is not a brilliant insult of choice.

It looks like these QEV arn't too hard too find. In my country at least. This is very strange normally anything I want is hard to come by. It seems a 1/2" QEV would cost me equal to $21 since I have no idea what a valve this size should cost I ask you guys is this a good price? there might be a high pressure air cannon on the way...

What about the one I linked you?

If you don't want to pay $65, make your own piston valve.

and well im in high school lol Gay is the best insult at the school grounds XD lol

umm hey Heimo if you dont mind me asking ,where do you live?

and Mr Crowley i wanted to buy a QEV becuase making my own piston valve fail so i gave up and wanted just to buy the qev . + A manufactured qev would have a faster opening time then what i could create ... mine would be fast but the qev would be faster.[/b]

Maybe, but a home made piston will have more flow

So why don't you buy the one I linked you? It may be $65 but it's the real deal and looks like the others.

It is possible that their internal construction is almost exactly the same

Could you find an info sheet on them (pdf. files with specs and drawings) ?? I know I've seen it before but I don't know where

I suspect it's not feasible due to shipping costs... last time my sister ordered something from AUS the shipping alone was 30$


have you phoned them ?

(there is phone number and their email there if you haven't seen it the first time I posted this)
LEGRIS AUSTRALASIA PTY | Parker Hannifin Australia Pty Ltd 305 Frankston Dandenong Rd Dandenong South - VIC 3175 VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA
Tel. : +613 9768 5555 | Fax : +613 9768 5556 | E-mail : customer.service.au@parker.com



there are international companies selling pneumatic equipment in AUS... if you have factories/industry etc, there have to be...

look for companies (such as rexroth, festo, legris, micro, clippard etc.) selling pneumatic equipment and phone them... quite a lot of them might not like small orders but you won't know that unless you contact them
