This toggle air switch is a great way to turn the air on or off to your handpiece without having to adjust the pressure of your filter/regulator.
The switch can be mounted directly to the filter/regulator stand for convenient access.
When switched OFF, it simply blocks the air from traveling through the tubing to the handpiece. When switched ON, it allows the air to flow to the handpiece.
This switch is recommended when using a tank type compressor when you don’t want to hassle with turning the compressor on or off or adjusting the filter/regulator.
The barbs are 1/8″ for use with the 1/8″ I.D. (inside diameter) tubing that comes with most high speed handpieces. The threads for mounting are 1/2″ in diameter.
