Fastenals is a store in America that sells QEVs. A European spudder should reply in the next few hours and help you out, i'm sure they can tell you where to get one either online or in store. You'll probably have to find a pneumatic store local to you, if there are none close to you, online is probably your best option.

HE SAID A EUROPEAN SPUDDER SHOULD... just kidding,
well it's probably not going to be as cheap as the US, just out of curiosity can you obtain sprinkler valves from your local hardware store and if so for how much? also did you check out these UK based suppliers ?

I wouldn't say that's expensive... I can get 3/4" versions for ~180,00 SEK so I'd say that 293,0 SEK isn't much more than that... well basically because people earn more in Sweden than here...

I could check if they'll ship you one from Poland but I don't think it would make much sense because of shipping costs...

you might spend some more time looking for better offers... normally the cheapest shops are not on the first page of google search results... alternatively you might want to check ebay

but still I think that 293 SEK isn't that much...

from here http://www.sklep.pneumatyka.org/typ-mv-27-c-36_53_74_292.htmlyou must be logged in to see prices there...

a 3/4" QEV + tax is clicky

you might contact them and ask if they ship abroad... IIRC I once asked them and they said it's not a problem...

I wonder if there's anyone there who can speak English :D

lol

if that fails I might send them an email

ohh BTW
I've ordered some stuff from them...
well the bad news is that I had to wait 2 or 3 months because they didn't have 3/4" QEVs so they had too order them but it was August I guess and they said that all of their truck drivers are on holidays.. the good news is that decided to pay for the shipping because of that...

lol I hope that when they finally got there they ordered more of them not just 1 for me :D well seriously if you think of it it's quite possible that they sell just 1 or 2 QEVs per year

why ? because QEVs are mostly used for increasing speed of single acting air cylinders
(so air doesn't have to flow from the cylinder, through the tubing and then to the valve located for example 10 meters away and vented)
...and a 3/4" QEV would be needed only for really really large air cylinders

no idea really but that's almost as cheap as I can get them (notice that tax is not included there)...
I dont understand anything from that website
I was expecting that, I already emailed them... IDK how to do it though (assuming they'll say 'yes we ship to Sweden'

lol I guess I would have to guide you thorough the registering process


anyway if you don't know if a given shop has soemthing or ships stuff somewhere call them or email them
