McMaster has them for $1.88

These places have them for around $1.40

But then your going to still need to pay shipping, so unless you are buying a lot then it's going to be cheaper to just try to find a local store that carries them.

i would just use a non threaded but im trying to fit in a schrader and 1/4 inch nipple onto a 1 1/2 inch threaded cap. the non threaded ones would take up too much room in the inside of the cap

Get these kind.
You can get them at tire stores.
http://www.schrader-valves.co.uk/images ... _00UK1.JPG
They are better than the pop in ones, and are better than threaded ones.
They won't blow out or get pushed into the chamber if you press too hard.



EDIT:


Forget that top site.
This one is better. These are teh exact ones I have.
You cant order them there but you can get and idea on what you want.

Ive never known threaded schrader valves to have a pressure rating. Also Ive never seen a threaded schrader valve used for a tire. [This would help us conclude that we are not confined to the ~60 PSI range found in most tires] Considering these are of metal construction, Id believe them to be suitable for any pressure that can be attained by any household compressor.

^^^Or greater actually. Metal scrader valves can contain some pretty god awful pressure. You should try a local Napa auto parts and ask for high pressure tank fill valves. I pay about ten bucks for 6 of them.
