Well I just put the half inch hose, and appropriate fittings, on the AirCat and tool and it did indeed make a nice difference.. How much, I can't really tell. I still have no way to torque them down accurately with my gun and tool, and I can't find a torque stick that will fit my half inch gun, so I'll just keep whacking them with the Mutha Thumper hammer to put them on and use my tool to remove them.
