Found an adapter for $9 today. Put it together with an aka reg and it works great! I'll post pics later, thanks for the help all.

This is much more portable.

IIRC Palmers made something for tires and so did tippmann

I was just thinking about this yesterday. Do you guys know if there is a company out there that makes an adapter for this?

true, but not nearly as fun as building your own Plus I am not a big fan of the idea of using Co2

Jinx is right, palmer's sells a female stab with an adapter on it. I am too lazy to go searching right now for a price, but I would imagine it would be around the $100 mark since they would charge you for a new stab, plus the cost of fittings etc. A friend has one and it inspired me to do my own.

If someone wants to make their own even simpler than mine, at ace hardware in the same section that they have the tire chucks right next to them is an inline reg that outputs 0-200psi ( think). the chuck and reg are both 1/4 npt, so someone could just head over to plumbing and pick up a 1/4-1/8 reducer. total cost if one would go that route would be about $30-$40 depending on the quality of chuck they wanted (locking vs non). I of course already had a reg and fittings laying around so I spent about $16 for the fun of it

It's $109. I work with a guy who was looking for a solution for his Jeep that would allow for a 20oz co2 tank. He ended up going with a non-regulated setup from I&I on ebay for $20. It has a trigger to start the airflow, but no reg.

I was Chris' friend who has the Palmer setup. It's a nice way to go, and I use it mostly with CO2.

What Chris missed seeing, though, was the setup that I send the baja racers out with... 70/68 with an adjustable tank reg set to 140 psi. (140 is just before the failure point for the valve stems, and still enough air pressure to seat a tire bead.)

we use this kinf od setup for small maintence at our field......no more getting the generator and the compressor out.

a 48/3000 regged at 120 with a palmer stab and a 2 inch spike nailer gunn will shoot enough to nail 3 sheets of plywood from a teammate. then we top it off again from the scuba.....tons lighter and more moveable then a long *** hose. the cost was 6 bucks for the 1/8 to 1/4 adapter everything else was standard paintball or aircompressor parts.

At the shop that I work at we have 2 of these built up.
One is built from an Female LP Palmer's Stab (0-200psi) and the other is built from a Universal Fill Adapter and a PPS Boulder.
Both run remote lines off of the regs, 1/8-1/4 reducing bushings, quick disconnects and right now they have tire chucks on them. I have also pulled the normal adjustment screw out and use a hex bolt with washers under it to limit the pressure that you get out of the system (100psi). They work amazing for filling tires. I use them to fill my mountain bike tires with nitrogen all the time. I also found out that a 45/68ci can fill 4 flat tires on a Chevy Astro van enough to get home.
Any time one of the guys at the shop goes on a vacation, one of the setups usually is borrowed so then if there are problems they can keep the tires inflated.
