    At least they are just almost doubling the price of their OEM, instead of tripling it like iwata

    Think about all the needless shipping that happens when someone buys a sata4 or parts from coast in say, ohio.
    illinois to germany, germany to california, california to ohio...right next door to badger LOL

    Hey now! That inefficiency keeps me employed so shut the heck up! :p Although I have wondered why I haul a load of lumber from Washington State to Maine, then go down the street, load up more lumber and take it back to Washington? I guess the trees on the other side of the continent grow straighter? ;)

    The funny thing about Badger air valves is they give you a free 1/8 BSP adapter on certain models. It must be some weird reason as to why they cling to a certain proprietary size.

    Yeah paasche does the same no?
    IDK i think it's just sort of a signature thing, i do like using the tiny hot pink badger hose sometimes though.

    @SiRoxx and i came up with a great business plan based on this. We buy up defunct brand names, then tout the european quality or the american quality since 1897 or 1947 or whatever, he'll buy stuff to ship me that i'll rebrand and sell back to europe for three times the price and vice versa. Then we hedge our bets by dumping large portions of the profits into shipping companies and oil.

    I haven't ever seen a Paasche AB with an adapter included, then again I'm not a big fan of their recent offerings.

    Funny thing too is the american made badger fitting is metric, while the rest of the world is using bsp which is sized in SAE
    LOL
