I buy 1/4" 100' at tractor supply to run the nailers. If more length is needed then I have a couple 3/8" 50' flexzilla hoses that are to heavy to be dragging around a roof

That looks decent and less expensive than the ones I use. I normally just get the red rubber ones from home depot and link them together. If I'm doing inside type work, I use the blue ones.Just bought this for work around house and garage.
I take it a good brass 3/8 to 1/4 coupler should suffice if I needed to connect the two ?I like these from Senco. http://www.acmetools.com/webapp/wcs...&cagpspn=pla&gclid=COHC1YrDwboCFWpk7AodL1YA8g
I also have thicker 3/8" Goodyear and Amflo for use as feeders if i need more distance, and a 50' and coiled Flexeel 1/4". The Senco is a little heavier, but lays flatter and is more durable.
What Steex said is correct. All my hoses still have 1/4" fittings. Even though there is a restriction in each end of the hose, the larger hose will have less friction and allow better air flow. 3/8" fittings would be better, but I don't think anybody in our field uses them. You'll find more of those sizes in industrial and automotive shops. For nail guns and such it doesn't really matter that much. Where it becomes more important is with sanders, grinders and other air hogs.I take it a good brass 3/8 to 1/4 coupler should suffice if I needed to connect the two ?
Electric compressor steel cabled to the truck. Electrical outlet was about 40' away from the truck.So you run a gas compressor and work in a crime free area?
