Set everything up with quick connect fittings. That way it is easy to remove the hose from the compressor, or change tools. I have always used the Milton type (type 15 in the photo above). They work fine. My compressor has a female quick connect, and the end of the hose has a male quick connect.
On the other end of the hose I have a female quick connect, and the tool itself has a male quick connect.

I run a 50’ 3/8” Flexzilla hose, which works fine. 3/8 hose is compatible with 1/4” NPT fittings, it is just a slightly larger hose diameter.
