I won a Hobbico 945 dual action airbrush at the local hobby shop. This
is a mixed blessing because it came with an air hose, but no connectors.
Even more mixed is the fact that the air hose suppiled and that fits on
the airbrush ilooks like it came off a bycycle tire pump. This is good,
but it does not fit my air compressor nor any of the compressed air
cans. I ordered and received part HCAR 4117 from Hobbico/Model Maker nd
that doesn't fit the ir hose either.
Hobbico sells a variety of adaptors in various sizes, 1/8, 1/4, and I
think 1/2 in various sizes. I do not know how to measure these things.
Is it inside diameter? Outside diameter? I am aware that a 2X4 peice of
lumber is no longer 2 inches by 4 inches. They allow for the wood the
saw removes (called the kerf). Is there a similar concept in air hose?
Is something -reffered- to as 1/4 inch but is actually someother
diameter by measure?
Please don't try to sell me on some other kind of air propelling device
or airbrush. What is done is done. The moving hand has writ and having
writ has moved on. That airplane has left the runway, the ship has left
the dock, the , well you get the idea.
My goal is to be able to connect the hose I have to my compressor and a
can of canned air. (I know that this takes two differect kinds of
Thanks very much.
