Hi guys.
Getting a 4 way gas manifold shortly & need some advice on fitting it out with JG fittings.
Is this the fitting I need for the main gas entry here & can they replace the barbs on each tap for easier connection.

should do the job, as long as the barb fittings you're replacing are 1/4bsp...

have you already bought your manifold?

if not get along to this mob

to create something like this, a fraction of the price of any pre-made manifold you'll find.

I know Crusty is covered but this might be useful for others?


Pneumatic, push in, 5 way manifold for 8mm OD line, ~$2.39 AUD delivered from China.

Is that what you would call a manifold, though?

For me the one big adavantage a manifold would have is to be able to turn individual lines off and on, while force carbing or other shenanigans.

This one is really just a line splitter. Handy to have a three way splitter though compared to two dual splitter.

I have purchased similar fittings in the past to trial and have to say some of their sizes don't match what they quote. 8mmish would be a better description.
Beware.Mind you its cheap enough.

Yeah, cheap but a bit nasty.

+1 for a bit nasty. I bought the T versions of those fittings being the tight arse that i am but when i sprayed some detergent on the connections there were definitely a few bubbles coming out.
