oceansong - I'm sorry I didn't see your comment immediately, but I'll answer anyway. Finding the right adapter was trial and error, just taking my equipment into an old fashioned hardware store and getting help from a clerk who had a pretty good eye for what might work to connect the braided hose to the Harbor Freight compressor. I think it was easier because I got the braided hose - the little plastic hose didn't look like it would connect to anything other than a Badger machine. I got my Createx paint locally, at Artists and Craftsman Supply (which has a few outlets elsewhere in the country).
