I’ve received the new air hose from Amazon. It is not a braided hose, so it is a bit on the undernourished side, but I think it will do what I need it to. My compressor, an aged little bit of equipment that really needs to be replaced, still soldiers on in its wheezing lethargic way (not unlike myself, in fact).
Airbrush hoses confront you with the problem of connector size. The one I chose was an Iwata hose, so I reasoned that it would at least fit the lower connector of an Iwata airbrush. And the other end seemed to be the large standard compressor attachment. But since I was doing this by mailorder, it was a matter of waiting til the parcel arrived to verify that it all fit correctly.
