    Hi all,

    Bit frustrated and looking for some help please.

    Just bought a 50l air compressor by wolf.

    I also ordered a couple of spray guns by Sealey.

    The Sealey guns don't fit the air hose

    The instructions to the air guns say you should plug the air hose directly in to the gun so don't start adding adaptors.

    I'm thinking that I should get a different air hose that will screw in to the guns, but I'm not sure which one and whether it would fit my compressor

    I can upload some pics if I haven't explained my problem well enough.

    Help would be appreciated , I have a compressor and spray guns but can't use them as it stands

    Welcome to the forum.

    A photo of the inlet on the gun and one of the free end of the hose would be a big help.

    Ok no problem

    Picture of the gun, picture of end of hose, and picture of an adaptor which fits into the house in a quick release type mechanism

    I was thinking I could remove the air inlet on the spray gun and replace it with the adaptor, but it doesn't seem to want to come off so I'm not sure if it's supposed to

    You could use a threaded socket to attach the quick fitting to the gun -

    putting a solid regulator on the gun as well as the barb fitting makes movent of the gun stiff and not flexible due to the hose pulling :(

    u probably wouldnt notice if u dont do it often enough manafacturers used to recomend using short whiptails rather than conect the gun direct to the quick release coupling because of strain on the gun . still its everyone to there own :)

    Cheers chaps

    I have ordered the adaptor kit from the links, so will let you know if that solves the problem

    Slim boy - I think I might know you from BWM Land, but sadly the forum is not live due to the death of Matt. I think you have posted on my bmw build thread (I am the guy who has plasti dipped the e93 purple :) )
