Source for swivel fittings for braided hose?

Is there a source for swivel fittings other than these NOS extreme rage ones that only seem to be available from II Sports?

I just got a pair and was thinking of switching some other markers because I am sick of macro line leaks. But these swivels are realllllly tight (do not spin easily) and also are an ugly chrome/silver color.

They did, back in the good old days. Maybe this was the only version produced?

Have you tried the trick with macro where you lightly sand the tip and put a drop of oil on there? That helped stop all my leaking issues.

Braided hose is just off the shelf hose used in a lot of industries. Hydraulics, grease guns, competition brake lines, NOS systems, and so on all sometimes use good old 1/8 NPT threaded hose.

Found some hydraulic fittings, they tend to be rated even higher than what we need. Solid stainless, so you know, expensive as hell...

You probably don't want to drop $42 a fitting.

Grease gun parts tend to be less expensive, but still rated for 3000psi. Haven't found a swivel elbow yet, but did find a straight swivel...

no, because I just want to eliminate leaking issues, not mitigate them.

Lazy!

I get it though, it's nice to just have something that works without having to fiddle. Strange that those fittings are easier to find in bold colors.

I have two, but they came off a really old marker, and both leak. So far I haven't been able to figure out how to pull them apart and change the o-ring inside.

So.....maybe there's a reason no one makes them anymore.

I personally feel they're dangerous, being made out of aluminum with very thin walls in the swivel portion. The few I've tried leaked almost immediately and didn't swivel under pressure, unlike macro fittings, and I tossed them. Not worth it to me.

Used to be made by KAPP, maybe they're still out there.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
