Un-Retired-Best Air Fittings

Kyle's picture

Well, I enjoyed retirement, but it wasn't destined to last. I have a teenage son now and he want's to be a home builder. So I'm coming out of retirement to teach him how to build some houses. Now I have to re-tool and I want to get some opinions on the best air fittings. 

I'm not worried about price so much as I am about quality. That hissing noise has always been a pet peeve of mine. It drives me crazy.

I guess we should include hose repair couplings in the list.

So what are the opinions an the best fittings?

Can't help much now that my long tome tool shop closed up.  I would buy senco hose from them and they'd fit it and the guns with u.s. made fittings.  I assumed supplied by senco but cannot verify.  These greyhoses primarily for framing.

Later for finish I bought a couple of flex eel and their fittings have performed like new for many yrs.


good luck on retirement.  A good reputation makes it agonizing to implement.
