You click the search button and ask later if you still don't find your answer.

There are several places to start. First, as noname said, search. Don't do the quick search, go advanced. Search google and youtube too. Don't forget the wiki. It is your friend.

If that don't work, look somewhere else that is real close by. it may help.

BTW, it's been a while noname.

Do you mean so that the blowgun is directly mounted to the valve? Just replace the tubing, barbs and clamps with a male-male adapter. IIRC, a 1/4" NPT adapter fits the outlet end of a typical blowgun.

Should be able to get one at the hardware store in the compressor accesories isle.

If you can't figure it out by now you really shouldn't be building a gun.
Try searching everywhere before you make a post.

I'll try one more time.

Put the 1/4" male-male adapter into the top of the sprinkler valve.
screw that into the blowgun.

I really don't know what else to say... if you can't figure that out just make a ball valve gun.

What he, and everyone else, is trying to say is why don't you tell us how to do it. It's been said several different times in this topic. So, give it a shot. In other words, stop asking to be spoonfed with a golden spoon when you've already been fed with a silver one.
