That kind of schrader valve is also used in water pressure tanks for well pumps..Just look on the internet for water well pumps ,pressure water tanks,well pumps.etc...just use the key words and you should find something. I found some at Fleetfarm and Menards. These stores are found in WI. U.S.A

You could also try Ace hardware (if you live in the U.S.)

You can also just take the rubber ones and hose clamp 'em onto 3/8" barbed fittings. I put a bit of tape beneathe the clamp so it doesnt tear up the rubber, but tighten 'em down and they work just as well as the threaded ones.

Like I said earlier, thats a real piss poor method that looks horrible and is bound to fail.

Lol you have something against schrader valves. But eh oh well, have you tried it yet frank?

I'm using my Schrader as an output valve... stupid idea you would say, but I'm bulk making BMG's (Bead Machine Gun) for my friends who live in Aus so we can play skirmish. Paintball here way expensives

Don't start crying when I play this as my hobby, Paintball, Airsoft and Nerf are equally good hobbies, except you can play Nerf in public. Good day! Hmph!

No, I use schraders all the time, I just very much dislike the way this guy keeps recommending to mount them.
