Air fitting types (warning - rant in progress)

Why, oh why do we need more than one type of air fittings??

I can understand sizes. I get it! I know why you'd want 1/2" or 3/8" or 1/4" hose and connectors, I do!

But WHY in the friggin' world do we need 2 types of 1/4 connectors/disconnects? STUPID!

Oh, in case anyone wants to know, I installed my 25' hose reel up to my garage ceiling and plumbed it over and down to the compressor. Now, I have TWO types of 1/4" fittings and so only one works for ANYTHING else that I have.

STUPID!

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

I feel your pain Larry!
A while back when I worked at the NAPA store, we had a whole rack of air fittings.
Type A, Type B, Type C... On and on. I can understand there being larger ones for industrial pneumatic applications but for a shop or garage, come on. There were like five different types and they all looked similar.

You aught to post up some pics of the hose reel. I've been wanting to get one.

What? I keep offering you the one I have over the parent's house. Granted, it's from a factory and needs to be bolted to an I-beam. But dang, I have one.

Reel from Harbor freight. During their sidewalk sale...I think about 77 bucks (sale price)...25 feet of 3/8" hose.

I bought a 25' goodyear 3/8" hose to run over to my compressor and the fittings. Only real issue besides the fittings (below) is changing from the 1/4 threads on the compressor/new hose to the 3/8" on the reel.

Here's a couple pix:

Good set up for my garage:

The connectors are both 1/4". One type (on the left with the 3 ball bearings) is NOT what I have for any tool/connector I own.

The right one, well, that's the sweet spot that I don't have enough of (and yet, have 2 to many of the other type). Grrr...

Ah, that's just a 40" LCD (499.99 at costco online).

Debbie told me to buy it for my birthday! When's your birthday CC?

I won't post pix of my kegerator or stereo or neon signs (unless you need to ask Tiny to spend LOTS of $$$)
