This is the compression fittings im looking at
Bitspower G1/4 Deluxe White 1/2 Compression Fitting CC5
and im wanting to add the
Bitspower G1/4 Deluxe White 45 Degree Rotary Adapter
Do i have to purchase compression fittings to adapt onto both ends or just one? cause looking at the photos i only need 1 fitting for 1 of the ends...
Since one side is threaded on the outside of the 45 degree fitting (male) and the other side is threaded on the inside (female) Im assuming that you will be connecting this 45 degree fitting to a block, rad, pump, reservior, or another fitting in which case the male end will go into that block, rad, pump, reservior, or other fitting and the other will need only the one compression fitting. In short you should only need the one compression fitting unless your to put a 45 degree bend in a tubing run then I would just suggest trying to get the tubing to do that bend or look at one of these. Basically if tubing is going to be on both ends of this fitting then you will need another compression fitting and would want to check out something like a 45 degree female to female fitting. But if you are trying to do something else let us know specifically what that is and we will try to help you. Edited by MNModder - 3/31/13 at 12:06am
