I agree it was good, Notorboca. One false move in this area and you've got big troubles.

I appreciate the comprehensive discussion on fluid connector selection.  I was especially interested in the single-point connection for air and fluids solution.  This can be very helpful for assemblers adn field technicians to reduce assembly, installation, and repair time (as well as reduce frustrations and errors).
