Thats what I thought. This regulator has 6 ports total. High pressure port, high pressure gauge, low pressure gauge, low pressure outlet, IR, and another one next to it. btw can I find this relief valve?

I think it's the low pressure relief vavle. The one next to it is high pressure relief valve?

Will this one work for the low pressure?

It doesn't really need to be there. I usually just put a plug there. Any welding supply will have them.

What would Honey Badger do?

Wish we had that kind of deal up north, but the plus side is when there is a regulator it's almost new in box. I even got the box, wrapping and manual that came with it. But then again, I spent way - way - way - way more than 37 dollars.

Yeah this one doesnt come with anything. Check ebay! Most of us got our stuff up there. Or check with betatail

I will never tell anyone how much I payed for my Matheson, I am too ashamed.

Also, wasn't there more people building their own regulators? I remember some other guy making a Concoa 212?

Not most of the time. I had one of those that came plugged from the factory.

Don't do that. The 1 series is unsuited to our use. It's designed for much higher flow rates than we use. Check Bettatail's metering valves sticky in the equipment section. From Swagelok, you're going to want an S, M, 21/22, or certain 0 series models.

I also have some Parker HR3's I stocked up on. PM me if you're interested.

So a A-1RM4-A is no good either right?

If you want to build good looking reg, take a look of some oldpunk's reg photos to give you some idea.

They're the good ones I've seen. (and even copied, too.lol)
