    Does anyone see a reason to use 1/2" hoses instead of 3/8"? I know its faster, but is it worth the extra bulk?

    I would be curious to see the same test with 3/8" hoses.

    I actually have those on the truck in the 1/4 flare by 1/4 npt and 1/4 by 1/8 npt. I believe we got them out of Johnstone.

    It's called a T3-6D fitting.

    i got mine from Fastenal.

    Google them. Paid $2+ shipping.

    make sure you have the right male pipe thread...most vacuum pumps are straight thread...some of the sites were selling the T3-6D with 35* flares and tapered male pipe thread..you want SAE 45* flares and straight pipe thread.

    T3-6D is showing 1/2 MPT. I think my pump is 3/4 MPT

    I'd double check it. i think it is only 1/2 cause mine is 6 CFM and it's half inch.
