    Andrew, thanks. Not having much of any experience with compressed air fittings, I have to say I'm learning a lot, not the least of which is that fact that I've been over tightening all of my joints....

    Bill, I have it stopped high and low, with cargo straps, hooked to eye bolts in the wall. I figure if that's not enough, then I've got more to worry about than my compressor. Seriously though, I...

    Tom, when I used dope only, once the joint was tight, it was physically locked, like bottomed out. With the tape and 4 or 5 layers, I suppose I could have tightened further, although I was cranked...

    I found one about 9 months ago, at a Rockler store. Call all of them and you may just find one left over. Also, if you haven't already done so, call Worksharp. Good luck.
