Air compressor fitting connector type?

Does anyone know the connector type for the air compressor hose outlet? I tried the hose off of my air compressor at home, but it wasn't the right fitting. I guess I can just go to the store an try a bunch of different connectors, but I thought I would try here first. Thanks!

I could never find the correct one for mine, so I bought the set and replace both ends. I do know there are about 5 or 6 different types.

Wow... that is a really smart solution. I really should have thought about it.

Amflo couplers standardized the air hose attachement world. Heavy duty uses require 3/8 or 1/2", but we mortals use 1/4". Trouble comes when some neighbor shows up w/the wrong coupler style. Scroll down for the Combo Coupler, a solution to coupler confusion, which will accept most popular male coupler styles. Or you can go uptown w/push button disconnect female couplers by Prevost, available at better tool stores everywhere.

Mike, 6 it is, thanks Jim.

I like the combo unit!

Always believed in multi tasking, just since the brain scramble after surgery, it is harder to do!

If you can find a local company that specializes in making air hose assemblies it becomes easy. We have a company called Flotran in PA and they are terrific. Mike's suggestion is to find a matching quick coupling assy is the way to go. Try a good sized rental organization that rents construction equipment such as street compressors, etc. and they can probably supply you with whatever you need.
