So got a great deal on these for $5 each off of craiglist. Brand new and still in the bag. Only problem is that I don't know what the fitting size is.

Went by Homedepot and only found out that it's smaller than 1/8th.

It's the 1/8" tube compression fitting. That's a great deal.

I`m not sure how flowerfishs arrived at the size


If it`s 1/8 tube and depending on what you are attaching to, you would need an adapter from Tube to NPT
example if the input end of the valve is connecting to a 1/8 female NPT port ( solenoid),this is required

A forum user's post count is like watts/gallon. It doesn't tell you anything about the quality of what they're giving.

While it came in that box, I suspect it's not the original box for that valve.

Yeah I don't see how this would connect to the valve.

Tube end to metering valve - NPT thread end to solenoid valve or other
