A while ago I bought a compressor that I had planned to use with my GW spray gun (the missus was out of work for about 5 months so I had to be careful with cash) but when it arrived I realised that a 1/8 socket doesn't actually mean an 8th of an inch... so I need an adaptor. My problem lies with the fact I have no idea how big the GW airhose is, and my previous experiences don't leave me with much faith in me measuring it and getting it right I've found various adaptors on the net that are listed as for Badger hoses (for example) but unsurprisingly nobody sells one marked "For that GW piece of crap" ;-)
So then, my lovely forumites, can any of you tell me the size of the hose so I can find an adaptor? Or have any of you already done this and can point me towards one?
I'll be getting myself a new spraygun after/for my birthday but I've done no painting in months while I procrastinated with this so I need to crack on if I'm ever to get my army finished.
I have not found any air brush hoses to be different - they are usually the same size or universal. So, if you get a Badger adaptor with the size of the fitting to connect to your hose, it should fit. I have an Iwata brush that needed an adaptor to fit to the hose, but as long as the hose fitting connects to your compressor, you should not have any trouble connecting your brush to the hose.
The best solution is to bring your stuff into a good hobby shop and if they sell airbrushes they will have the adaptors - but, I realize that is not always possible!
Sadly I've been round all of our local shops and none of them sell adaptors - else I'd have just bought a handful of different types
But if they all use similar hoses I'll get one from the net and see how it goes, worst case scenario I waste a fiver!
It is a badger adapter. I bought one from a local art supply store a year or so ago. If you don't have a local art supply store you can definitely find the part online. The part will cost you less than $5.
