No, but you can buy them at NAPA Auto Parts. They're about $2.50.

You can buy them at HD. Look in the water pump section. They are the solid metal screw in version. Usually in 1/8 or 1/4 NPT. About 5 bucks or so.

I prefer the kind you thred in from the outside insterad of the ones you bolt on from the inside. they are much easier in my oppinion. the only place ive seen them was at a local industrial supplier, and mcmaster.

bingo!But not all Home Depots carry them, I have seen it on their website but mine does not carry it.
Mcmaster is a good option too when it comes to schraders, cheap price with a variety of options

You can also buy presta/kenda tubes from almost every bike shop! They are threaded with a screw and you get some rubber tube for whatever you want (diaphram etc) they cost about the same as you schrader valves.
Heres what they look like: http://s203.photobucket.com/albums/aa95 ... G_0438.jpg
They seal really well too, the same as schrader.

Definitely go with these, I have used them in every one of my guns and I have never had a single leak around the valve.

I bought four of those and I hate them. I hate threading them from the inside.

They have some schraders at ACE hardware, and do you know what part number schraders are at Pep boys? Also, has anyone ever seen any at Menards?
