I have the Iwata Power Jet Pro compressor with quick disconnects at the compressor and on both airbrushes connected to it (essentially on both ends of the hoses). Here’s a link to the Iwata web page giving your hardware options.

You can also find adapters at any hardware store selling high pressure gas fixtures.

I just received an Iwata Pro Jet compressor to replace my aging silent compressor.. The Iwata unit is equipped with quick connect connections on the output ports.  My lines to the spray booth and bead blaster have 1/4" fittings.  Is there a quick solution without having to redesign the whole system.

 

I thought that I had better ask before getting too aggressive with the wrench.

 

Thanks for any help.

I'd try to find a compatible male end for you hose. The compressor connection is probably metric, not 1/4 inch.

Looks like a depressed centre flat to me... CP numbers all of these cars in the 3099xx series. My best guess based on what I can see is CP 30992_, which corresponds to a group of 5 cars built by CP (likely from General Steel Castings kits) as CP 309925-309929 in late 1930.

The second photo is NRC 4552 from an earlier lot 5325 built in 1922 but very similar. Nice view of the reweigh block shows the car was stencilled at NRC’s shops in Cudahy, WI. This car will last until Sept 1951.

Re: Rapido Trains Single Sheath Outside Braced Box Car models

Right... regarding the.... errr..... boards....

My first project with Rapido was the GARX meat reefer. That was criticized on some groups as having too big a gap between the boards. In discussions with our tool shops since they told me that they were not able to do much smaller (a stock answer!), so this time I thought that I'd get clever and try something different on the USRA car to represent the boards - and yes, inspired a bit by the Tichy model. Well..... It didn't work! 

The models shown on the web site are first test shots wit ha quick coat of paint, and this whole discussion highlights teh problem with showing early samples! We are re-doing the sides, along with changing several other details like the stirrup steps. So Robert, Brian is correct (I was the one who told him that), and no it is not an expensive re-tooling job, and the SP boxcar has waiting to start tooling (teh design is compete) until this is worked out.

Re: Cable reel and cable barge was NRC wood sheathed reefer ID c1940-48

hi Ralph,

Well, looking at the 1941 Summary of Equipment for CPR, it would be in one of two 50+’ long series of cars starting 309XXX.  (I think the 8 hatch reefer to its right tells us its well over 43’).

  

My guess is 30992X, so one of the 5 cars in series 309925-309929, 54’ 5” long built in 1930.

I have not checked for additions to the roster after 1941, so not 100% certain.

While the brands Lionel and MTH don’t evoke feelings of accurate product excellence over the past maybe two decades they have been a boon to 1/48 two rail modelers with state of the art scale locomotives, freight and passenger cars.  
Maybe not proto 48 level, but really nice for production models.

Re: Rapido Trains Single Sheath Outside Braced Box Car models

But wasn't it Richard's "train set bozos" comment that really did the FCL in?

That comment certainly raised temperatures, for sure, but I think it was some careless comments of a more personal nature, which the then-moderator refused to notice, that caused many of us to bail. Fair and consistent moderation is essential to civilized lists, IMO.

LOL ! I'd forgotten that little dust up.

Here was my defense of Richard Hendrickson on 12/10/2000.
It was hardly the last word on the subject !! :-D

-------------------
To: The Freightcars List <freightcars@...>
From: "Tim O'Connor" <timoconnor@...>
Subject: [FC] An apology? What for? And to whom?

What exactly was R.H. supposed to apologize for? As far
as I can tell, Richard simply disparaged a pretty vaguely
described group of nameless "trainset bozos". In no way can
anyone on this list accurately construe that to be a personal
attack -- unless in fact, they believe that term applies to
them. Who here does? This is political correctness without a
clue -- the P.C. police demanding a formal apology on behalf
of an imaginary offended party.

I consider the term "trainset bozo" to be just as acceptable
as "rivet counter", a term that is almost never used in a
supportive, nurturing manner. Why aren't the "vesties" down
on their knees begging our forgiveness for all the slings and
arrows we have suffered with? (Maybe because they don't care!)
