I bought a cylinder the other day but the openings are 3/8 and I'm trying to find some 3/8 to 1/4 quick tube connect adapters. Anyone know a good place to find these? Or maybe some other way to attach the 1/4 tube to it?

I may have what you're looking for, I'll have to check. I have a few questions:

Are the ports in the cylinder 3/8 NPT? You want the kind of fitting where you have to push the ring around the line to release it? What material is the air line made of?

Look in the steel pipe section at HomeD/lowes they will have 3/8 to 1/4 threaded adapters.

but, the fact that your cylinder has 3/8" holes may mean it needs more air than the 1/4" line can supply.

Man if I would have known that replys were going to happen so quick I would have waiting a little. I ordered some from Omega.com so you can stop looking for them. I'm a little worried about going from a 3/8NPT to a 1/4 tube but it should work out fine (I'm not moving much) 4 inch stoke 1/2 bore.

thanks for the HD Lowes comment. I was in Lowes looking at the adapter section and could not find anything...never thought of the steel pipe section(slaps forhead)
