What is that series of fittings going to your compressor?
Yes, standard compression fittings, from the ACE hardware. If you notice...those coils are the same size of one of those plastic round containers that bulk blank CD's come in. I think there is nearly 5 feet of copper in that little coil. It really works for cooling.
My compressor came with nothing more than a plug in the holes to keep them clean, all the fittings, brass and copper, are mine. That particular fitting is a pipe thread.
That bunch of fittings contain a couple parts:
A pressure relief valve set at 185 psi(just in case).
A check valve.
Not in the picture is a filter and water seperator. They are down next to the tank, which is under the batteries.
My compressor does not need constant oiling, so I do not use an oiler or coloessor(sp(oil remover)).
