Default Quick Disconnects...

Looking for a line on both SS and Brass QD's and related parts. Anybody have a good source for these? B3 has them, but at 25$ for one M/F set... i'm looking to see if i can save a few pennies.

B3's are the cheapest for SS. Brass can be had much cheaper. If you do a search for "Brass QD" and put Bobby_M in the member search field, it will come up with the part numbers from McMaster-Carr.

I bought at B3. They are a quality product with really good attention to surface finish. I am totally happy with them. Look for a "deal of the day" sale to get the best price.

No no, thank you for making me a phenomenon on the west coast

The nice thing about the BRASS QDs, is that you can replace the WHOLE QD for about $2-$6 tops... which is nice.

I will get my "Instructional" video of the Brew Beast up tomorrow when I get back in the states.

I just got two sets of the polysulfone QD's from B3 and they are quite nice. I'll let you know once I use them this weekend...
