Broken bicycle pump "head"

It's actually not exclusively a bicycle pump head but I broke the nozzle/head on an electric pump made by Black and Decker. After numerous calls for replacement parts I was told that it's a "liability" to sell replacement parts for high pressure lines.

With that out of the way, where can I buy a replacement head/nozzle to crimp on the end of the hose? I don't want to buy another expensive pump just to replace a $2 part.

Thanks
Chris

Check with an auto parts store for a schrader head. No idea where to get a presta if that is what you are looking for. I'm concerned about a crimp fit onto a hose blowing out under pressure. If the hose threads into the pump body why not replace the hose assembly?

perhaps you need to have the hose size in mind, bring what you have,
and see if the bike shop can order you a floor pump replacement head,
from one of their distributors, then a hose clamp to fit it..

there a trigger to shut the air off to prevent over pressure?
volume of car-tires gives more margin of error,
than a small volume bike tire.

When I ordered a new head for my bontrager turbo, I got a hose and head for $12. I would buy something like that, cut the hose on the black and decker, and connect the hoses together with a barbed coupler and t-bolt clamps if they are available in that size, if not readily available, I would just use regular hose clamps.
