Do you mean you can't connect the hose to the airbrush?The hose that came with it should fit though.Looks like a Badger airbrush right.

Yeah it's all part of one kit. The hose won't thread on because the threads aren't long enough

Ive got the exact same airbrush and i went into my bits and bobs box and i found the same silver connector and it fits onto the airbrush without any problem, can you show a pic of the threads inside the silver connector? the threads in mine go right to the end of the connector, is it a problem there? its strange by all i can figure they should fit without any problem

get rid of that hose as soon as you can and get a braided hose with a quick release and a male connector for the airbrush. it makes storing the ab easier and the plastic hose is crap.

They go right to the end of the connector on the hose on mine aswell, it seems to be at the airbrush that the problem is

Does this end piece without the threads come off as it seems to have a hex head.

the badger connector is Small. I take it that the hose came with the Compressor.

some of the Badgers come with an adapter for the hose, like this,

I have this one spare, Pm me your address and i will send it to you and that should fix your issue,
The hose connection looks a tad large so this is what you will need.

i think Spud might be right here, that silver connector looks to be a bit large, if Spuds connector does not work i have one of those silver female hose connectors that does fit my badger and i can also let you have it, either way we will figure out something man, i dont think its the airbrush end that the prob is, so it has to be the connector on the hose

I forgot about this, it's strange tho because it all came in a sealed badger kit. Thanks a lot for the advice and offer for the connector guys.
I'll send you on my details spud. Hopefully I can get the hang of airbrushing now after all of this
