View Full Version : adapter fitting needed
11-09-2007, 03:39 PM
I'm looking for an adapter to go from 9/16x18 male on my reg to 5/8x18 male on the argon hose. Where to find these?
Are any of these it?

Just go to Home Depot of Lowes or equivalent store and look at the brass plumbing fittings. Take your pieces with you. You should be able to find it easily and cheaper. Your LWS may have one as well.

Look here. Scroll down about half a page...
Look under, "Western A, B, C & D Size Fittings" =>>>"Regulator Outlet Bushings."
I think you need part #32 (1/4" male NPT to B size RH, right hand thread).
5/8" x 18 fitting is the standard "B" size fitting used on most welders and regulators/flowmeters.
Hope this helps...

Home Depot and Lowes have pipe and tube fittings for sale but I donīt think a pipe bushing or pipe nipple is what your need. If you need pipe threaded adapters for gas welding system they must be made of right materials and maybe O2 clean.
Most welding supply stores sell welding gas fittings made by Western Enterprises and will help you select the right fitting. With enough details there are many people here that can tell you what you need.
