I remember buying fittings for 6 inch PVC pipe. You are not going to like the prices.

Let us know what the writing on the side of the pipe says and we might be able to help you.

As Tech said, 6" fittings are usually pretty expensive. Keep an eye out for deals on eBay; though shipping might be costly.

You could always try a scaled-down version of this:

edit: seems that prices for 6" PVC fittings in the US are about the same price, if not cheaper, than many 4" fittings in NZ :(

I found this, witch lists the pipe at 235 PSI working pressure I think this would be perfect for my next pneumatic but I can't find any fittings anywhere

Well since you haven't told us what's written on the pipe, you'll just have to assume you're right about the 235PSI WP :wink:

As for fittings: www.mcmaster.com (there are several other online retailers as well).
