Anyone knowledgeable on compressor, airbrush and duster fittings?

Recommended Posts

I want to buy a duster pistol to go with my hobby compressor so that I can clean my computer now and then.

I'm looking at the following:

The problem I have is that I do not want to use the quick connect that they come with but just use a threaded adapter that screws into the pistol grip and then into my compressor hose. Below is a photo of my current array of fittings including the fitting that goes into my spray gun.

Questions:

What is the unknown thread size that connects to the spray gun?

Will that adapter fit into the pistol grips of the dusters if I remove the quick detach fitting?

If not, what is the thread that is used within the duster pistol grip?

 

If all that if for nought, then what is the specific name for the opposing quick release(female?) or that type as a whole; size, name etc?

 

Cheers,

Tom.

No, not tapered. The 1/8" is too small and 1/4" too big, I'm thinking it might be 3/8th BSP but need confirmation.

You know what? I'm being daft as *fruitcage* and should stop posting when tired.

 

3/8 is clearly bigger, not smaller than 1/4. It does look like that size difference though.

 

Wonder if it's a unf thread? They tend to use unf on compressors and the like.

Does anyone have one of these duster guns to hand that they could compare to another known fitting or just measure up the physical dimensions in mm?
