Back to work, nothing to see here
I’m not sure I understand, the knurling is there for grip and you decided to cut a good chunk of the knurling out to aid in grip? The sharp edges on the crown will stay like that for a week before your glove won’t catch it anymore to pull down. This trick is an old boys trick used in the oil field. I remember a friend telling me years ago. Keep a file handy lol.
They stay sharp in excess of 10 years. That knurl isn’t jack! Never seen or heard of anyone doing it so I thought I was the coolest. I suppose not
It could probably work for your situation, we’re not launching a rocket into space here lol, ide probably use stainless fittings instead of brass, play with it.
So this isn’t something new I started doing. It’s field tested. I’ve been slicing and dicing for 16 years.
Every little thing I do to my soap, controls, machines, guns and hoses comes through when I’m spanking trucks left, right, up, down and sideways for over 12 hours.
Your a good man dez but your wasting your time. It’s psychological, this fitting won’t do anything for efficiency. It’s a quick connect, if you have time to cough you have time to unhook a conventional fitting.
Maybe you have big hands, I have small hands and small things associated with small things
