Learn more about the Milton Legacy!

My father handed down to me - integrity. With that, I found that the tools that we made in the United States, such as Milton provide us with being able to continue the tradition here at Autoperformance Center and allowed us to continue to do a great job.

In this line of work, you don’t buy respect, you earn it through blood, sweat and tears. Mechanics, farmers, no one ever said your job would be easy. There are obstacles, there are mistakes, but with hard work, there are no limits. That’s why we build durable tools that stand the test of time.

Watch a product demo of the Milton M-Style Safety Coupler!

This is the Milton M-Style safety coupler. The key factor in this, is it actually releases the air out of the tool or the hose before it’s actually disconnected. It’s a key factor so that the hose is not flailing all over the place.

Let me show you how that works. The first time I push the button, you can hear that it actually releases all the air, but still retains the plug inside the coupler. The second time I push it, it actually releases the plug from within the coupler.

Watch a product demo of the Milton M-Style Safety Coupler!

Here’s how a Milton push button M-style safety coupler works. On my tool side I have my M-style plug, on the hose side I have my M-style coupler. All I simply have to do is push the tool inside the coupler - you’ll hear it click twice and I’ll know it’s locked into place.

Now how do I release it? You see this red button over here? If I push it once, it actually releases all of the air out of the tool - but yet- it is still retained inside of the coupler. I push it one more time and it actually releases from the coupler and that is how a Milton push button safety coupler works.

Here's how to replace the valve inside of a Milton Inflator Gauge.

The first thing you always want to do is you always want to make sure there’s no pressure going into the tool so the first thing I’m going to do is disconnect the air hose from the inflator gauge.

The first thing you need to do is use a large bladed screwdriver and turn this nut on the bottom side of the casting counter-clockwise until it’s loose - I can undo it by hand remove the nut because I’ll need to save that for later.

Safety Tip Blow Gun Kit

As always wear safety glasses. That’s the first and foremost thing for safety. Let me show you the new S-174. Milton has come up with a great new brand of blowguns. In fact go Take a look at them www.miltonindustries.com
Let me show you one that’s really cool, it’s the S-174. I’ll walk you around the tool, show how it works a little bit and then we’ll show you some applications for this tool that I think you’ll find really impressive.

Deluxe Blow Gun Tip Kit

Hey Milton really hit a home run with this new blowgun line. We’ve talked about the S-174KIT before, the S-164 – Here’s the S-194, what’s so different about this one? Here, let me show you.

Standard ¼” inlets

What would a Milton blow gun be without a Milton 727 M-style plug – gotta put that on there!
It’s got a hang hole
4” bent stainless steel nozzle

Milton Pistol Grip Blow Gun

Hey, if you’re looking for a great, economical blow gun look no further than the Milton S-163. In fact, Milton has a whole new line of blow guns – check it out www.miltonindustries.com

Let me show you a few features on the S-163
Firth thing you’ll notice is the ¼” inlet
It’s got the classic Milton logo to it
4” steel nozzle
It’s got a hang loop and a hang hook
And if you notice the handle has got a nice little texture on there to keep my fingers exactly where they need to be

Rubber Tip Blow Gun

Hey Milton has really done their homework on their new blowgun line. It features everything from the basic blowgun all the way up to a comfort handle with a bunch of different attachments to it.

Part of that line is the S-164 – similar to the S-174, but this one has a fixed rubber nozzle at the top there. You’ll also notice some of the same features as the S-174 –

  • It’s got a brass ¼” inlet
  • Of course, I’ve got to put on the Milton 727 M-style plug – it’s been around for 70 years, can’t miss it
  • Classic Milton logo
  • No flow control – look at the S-174 that’s got flow control
  • Hang hook
  • Hang loop
  • And if you notice on the handle, what’s really cool about the handle - my fingers don’t slide off. It actually catches my pinky just at the end of it so my hands don’t slip off. I have a better grip on it. You want a better grip when using a blow gun and of course, always wear those safety glasses.

Blow Gun Debris Deflector

Here’s one more great accessory that Milton has added to the blow gun line. It’s a chip shield it fits any 6mm nozzle blow gun. All I gotta do is slip it on the end of the blow gun, turn the little screw here and I’m done. What the chip shield does is prevents – not all of it – but it prevents a lot of the blow back of small material coming right back at me. Of course I’m always wearing safety glasses, but this is just another extra safety measure. This is great for blowing off metal shavings, let me show you how it works.
