Airbrush Hose 1/4" to 1/8" Part II

Airbrush Hose 1/4

Back in 2011 I bought a 1/4" to 1/8" Airbrush hose on Ebay for my Double Action Airbrush. Unfortunately I never got to use it. One summer heatwave was all it took and this is all that's left of it. Crumbles when you hold it. I don't think you can find this type of airbrush anymore on ebay, well the last time I checked I didn't find any. Guess they weren't really meant to handle the heat.

It wasn't a total loss however as the 1/4" and 1/8" connectors were undamaged. I just looked for some aquarium aerator hoses and it fit just right with the connectors. The connectors can be unscrewed and the hose inserted then re tightened to make an airtight fit. This is how it looks right now.
