Northern Industrial Air Manifold - 5 in 1
this thing is big and I found it difficult to get plugs for the unused outlets. Its OK just very big and ended up not using it.

This is as handy as another hand would be. I always wandered if it was necessary to have one and I have been impressed and found a great use. I was changing tires on a four wheeler the other day and it happened. I have a "T" coming out of the cut off valve on my compressor. A regulater on one side of it and this manifold on the other. I was able to have my air pressure set for my air tools with the regulater and able to use full pressure air off the manifold to seat the bead on the tires. It worked great. As far as leaks go I used teflon tape when I installed it and have never had any problems. Great product guys.

If you don't mind the air leaks, buy it. I attempted to use this for CO2 distribution...No go. Could not get any of the 8 holes to seal with any amount of teflon tape. I guess it would be okay for air tools, nothing else.

Easy to use and high quality
I bought one of these manifolds a month ago and regret not buying two more. I have it mounted to my work bench with five couplers on it, and always have at least two air tools connected.

IndustrialRepairman1 is right, the included steel plugs are not sealed well, even tightening them won't do.
I was able to make this manifold useful by replacing the steel plugs with brass 1/4" MIP plugs and using heavy duty teflon tape on all fittings. Otherwise you will have leaks.
