How does a hardline work?

Hi everyone:

How is a hardline put together? It seem like palmer is selling hardline, but how can they be put together? Is there anyone offering this service today?

Thanks

they work pretty much just like Micro lines, you will need figure out the routing of your lines, bend the tube with a pipe bender, keep the angle shallow or use large radius for corners so you don't collapse the tube. lock them onto your gun using compression fittings.

Most hardware store sell the compression fittings. The 1/8"NPT to 1/8"CP is a very common adapter for all variety of industrial components.

1/8"NPT to 5/32"CP is also a common size, though less common.

Also less common, but used, are flange fittings, and banjo fittings. They are not recommended as the ones you find are not likely to be rated anywhere near the pressure you need.

If your hardware store does not stock them, autoparts stores usually do, since they are common brake parts. If that fails, Palmers also stocks them. Regardless, make sure the pressure rating is sutable. Most are rated around 3000psi, but always check that its at least 2000psi
