    Anyone know of a good online source for air fittings?
    I'm looking for tire chucks, a shraeder valve w/ 1/4" NPT, a manifold, a valve, stuff like that.

    Any help is much appreciated

    McMastercarr for air fittings, manifolds, press gauge, check valve, etc. They have online ordering and no minimums.

    Your friendly truck parts store (freightliner, peterbilt, etc) for 1/4" air brake hose. The fittings there are DOT approved, higher quality and tad bit more expensive.

    The industrial fittings sold by McMastercarr and the like are of equal quality without the added cost of DOT approval...and work mighty fine for most of our uses. :cool:

    hmmm... so I guess no 747 doors? Darn. Thanks for pointing out the lack of space bar usage.

    Ha! Local parts store!

    Woooo-hooo... what a pleasant dream.

    Nope. Our local truck parts store place is about 4 to 5 hours drive from here in the capital. Too far.

    But a good idea! I'm not mocking you, but rather the poor availability of parts here.

    thanks for the mcmaster carr tip, everyone. I'm compiling an order now. I really like the "save" feature. Great for people like me who need a few days to make sure they've got everything
