Hello everyone!

I have a shop and would like to replace all existing air fitting and couplers with high flow style ones . I would probably need 100 fittings and 20 couplers to copletely outfit all hoses and tools for present and future use. Anyone has an idea where i can get them quality at reasonable cost ? Any suggestions ? Thank you all !!

I have to ask....why ?
Surely you only need large bore fittings....and large bore hose....in your spraybooth ?

I've been using this set up for about 8-10 yrs with complete satisfaction. Just push the tool in without pulling the coupler.
The female side fits a few other milton male couples.

Longtime reader of this forum. Great site btw. Had a question about the High Flow fittings.
My dedicated hoses for paint are 3/8 with 1/4npt threaded male ends. I want to change to the Milton V or Prevost hifh flow hardware. Would there be an advantage to using 3/8NPT High flow couplers with a bushing to adapt to the hose end 1/4 npt? Would also need to do the same thing on the tool end as well.
Thanks,
Dave
