if its that coating on them as in the pic they will rust up in no time at all got holmbury couplings on most of my attachments and machines the holmbury have a dull grey type coating on them that stops them from rusting up faster than the nickel shiny coating on others for some reason the shiny nickel coating dont last as long as the old chromium 6 coating that used to be around but now is carcinogenic but the dull grey coating holmbury use lasts a lot longer and is all i use and specify when replacing them

'Morning Lefty.
It's deffo Holmbury themselves - here's their website they gave me - www.holmbury.com .
Their coating is designed to last, reading the spec.s in the PDF catalog.
I know the dull grey you're talking about - got a few like it, but also have some of these on the 'Drema and they seem 'happy enough' ATM. Been on there a while by the looks of it.

I'll mail 'em and ask - the guy I've been dealing with seems an OK sort of fella.
Got to admit though mate - they're 'kin cheap!!!!
I'll take you a pic or two of what I've had from 'em.

Just looked at their catalog and according to that they go up to 2" Mark10.
These people are the manufacturers - they are Holmbury!!
I am totally impressed with what I've bought.
Also have a.n.other source I've found for 1" BSP at virtually the same price and look the Canines Gonads to me!

I'll put some pic.s up in a minute - when they've loaded!!
