Spunding setup

Postby DrPaulsen » Sun Dec 17, 2017 8:11 pm

Folks with spunding setups, I need some help as I have all but one piece to finish this thing off. The missing item is an adapter for the ball lock flared male piece to the FPT port on the tee. I can find all sorts of flare-to-npt adapters, but not this particular combo in 1/4". What did you guys use to mate this junction?Image

Let me look in my pieces and parts bin tonight. Is that brass T 1/2" NPT I assume?

I have a small section of hose, w/ the obvious hose barb fittings at either end. Makes it easier to fit in a dorm fridge w/ tight height clearance.

Also, not to tell you your business, but you're probably going to want a gas qd, not bev. :)

Thanks. I have a piece of hose like that laying around with female flared adapters at both ends. That might work. Good catch on the gas QD adapter - I have one laying around somewhere but couldn't find it when I was going to take the pic.

I have MFL barbs galore as well if you want to go with Tom's concept.

I need to build one of these someday.

There is a piece. Got this a long time ago preassembled by Northern Brewer.

Almost not worth sourcing the parts to build it at that price.

Yep. I couldn't get the parts for less and bought the assembly from Williams.
