Pipe bending 101 - Page 88

post #871 of 2174
Where did you find the fittings without the threads? PPCs doesn't stock them and I couldn't find any.

I told PPCs about the one fitting being too small and they passed it on to Koolance. I'm still waiting to hear what Koolance has to say.
I guess if Koolance doesn't pony up a new cap then I've got an $11 paper weight.

I notice that more and more the shops are passing everything on to the vendor to correct. I mean that has worked out OK for me so far but we'll wait and see what happens.
For example if Aqua Computer has a screwup/missing parts etc they are very quick to send replacements out. How Koolance approaches things I have no idea, but the squeaky wheel usually gets the grease so I would not hesitate to contact them, or have the shop you bought them from pass it on.

I also bought mine from PPCs, I'll be sure to to email Koolance sometime soon about it. I went a little cheaper in those regards, I combined a XSPC male to male adapter and the koolance fittings without the threads. Think it's a $3 savings per fitting. Didn't make a difference though considering they don't work biggrin.gif

Gonna work on my the tubing for the folding computer, just hope I have enough push fits on hand! Aquatuning is murder on shipping unless you spend a lot.

Pretty expensive at $8 for the cheapest fitting, but I'm glad to see they are getting something in for pipe.
Actually, they're originally for E22 acrylic tubing that PPC is carrying as well. But I guess they could be used for copper too.

I think he's referring to these: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_203_474&products_id=25572
I almost bought them once upon a time before I noticed it was female threads.

Actually they are rebranded Camozzi fittings and are designed for pneumatic operations,they work with all hard tube as it uses a fingertrap style lock.

It's in the link Krusher gave, combine that with this, http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_951&products_id=30111, you end up saving somewhere around $3 per fitting.

I'm going to sell my Koolance/XSPC fittings once I have all my PCs in one piece, not sure when that will be but hopefully soon!
post #876 of 2174
Guys, those threadless Koolance fittings at PPCs are discontinued. See the D at the end of the part number? I asked them a week ago when they were going to get more and that's what they told me.
Also Koolance doesn't list them anymore, that I could find.

Ya but they're still in stock apparently?

Have you tried to buy any lately? They may be in stock somewhere, though I couldn't find any.
If you try to buy more than 1 at PPCs then it comes up as backordered. But in reality they won't be stocking any more, is what I was told.
But I have all the 3/8" fittings I need, I'm through with the 3/8" sections and working on the 1/2" now.

Oooh... I've only added 1 to see if it's in stock. tongue.gif
