I bought a pneumatic cylinder for a prop i am working on. The problem is, the threads for the airlines. these are 4mm, and for the life of me I have not been able to find any connectors. Does anyone have a good source for these?

I have done pneumatics before using door closers, but i wanted to do it right this time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What is the brand and model of the cylinder?

If you are saying that the threaded port for the air input is 4mm, I'm guessing that's 1/8th inch BSP, but can't be positive without more information.
I get all of my quick connect fittings (BSP and NPT) on Ebay.
For the outer diameter of the air-line connector with BSP, 4mm=1/8 inch and 6mm=1/4 inch.

Thanks for the feedback. i'll check and see if 1/8 works. I guess my mistake was looking at 1/8 in the store and thinking that was way too big.

Oh well. I'm learning, so I'm sure i'll come up with some other silly questions to ask along the way.
