The Original Line II is a stainless steel body air cylinder with built-in flow controls and fittings. It reportedly has a smaller profile than standard cylinder/flow control/fitting combinations. It also features speed control with a special "flow gear" that allows fine speed controls with over 15 turns of adjustment. Built-in, quick-connect fittings are compatible with urethane, nylon, and calibrated polyethylene tubing. Front and rear heads include built-in foot-mounting holes, and optional push-to-connect elbows and tees are available for easy installation. It provides the same design features, overall length, and mounting thread sizes as Original Line stainless steel body air cylinders.
