Other than a welding supply shop, do home improvement stores carry them? Local welding shops are not that conveniant to get to during the week, so I was hoping a Home Depot or Lowes might cary?

My LHBS carries them as well as the fire extinguisher place that refills my CO2. Not sure about Lowes or home depot.

if your regulator doesn't have an integral one (micromatic regulators do) then you can get by in a pinch making one from the lid of a gladware or other disposable storage container type thing, cut a washer out of that thin plastic and it should work fine.

I went by a couple of ACE stores and the only washers they had were close in size, but the opening is bigger. The normal size washer is 3/4" outer diameter and an inner diameter of 1/4". ACE has 3/4" OD x 1/2" ID. Do you think this will make much of a differnce?

Should work. Give it a try. Or just make your own if you are in a real pinch
