Well atleast now I have closure on the case of "who sniped my regulators away from me after all my hard work haggling" but better you than someone else LOL

The victor hpt 100's look very nice. The hpt 500 isn't that big imo so the form factor of the hpt 100 must be quite small.

It depends on how large of an order you put in. I don't know about swagelok, but mcmastercarr charges a handling fee on top of shipping that makes small orders uneconomical.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

The Parker / Airgas link didn't work for me.



Where can I track down a shiny cga320 nipple and nut?

I'm also looking for a spare 1/4mpt to 1/8 fpt adapter... as well as a 1/8npt to 1/4 tube adapter if anyone has those lying around.

Yup. It's my favorite. The machining is very nice.

matheson stainless steel 3810, need some good cleaning.
380853126598

Airproducts, nice condition, oldpunk built some nice systems with this regulator.
261264121264

A nice Concoa 315, rarer than the 312 model, I like the LP side on extend arm, and actually this model was one of my early personal co2 systems.
171128668370

solenoids, try to order the SMC VDW21 from SMCpneumatics, suitable models are VDW21-5G-1-01N, VDW21-5F-1-01N, both 24V DC input, and VDW21-6G-1-01N, VDW21-6F-1-01N, both 12V DC input.
Do not order the other high voltage inputs SMC VDW21, for example, a 110V AC input model VDW21-3G-1-01N, because there is no ground prone for these high voltage models!

Do not order from the PLC website. I ordered 2 of the vdw21-5g-01n on february 26 because the website said they have them in stock. A week later I get an email from them with a quote for the part that I already ordered. I contacted them to find out out what's going on and when they'll ship my solenoids and they said that they will probably get them from the vendor "on OR about April 1." Don't know what to do but wait since I already paid for them.

Forgot to mention that they do a $50 minimum order. They tack on whatever is left to make up the difference of a total of $50.

I ordered 4 of the Brooks valves a while ago, from PLC, they only shipped one because there wasn't enough quantity, turned out the single piece wasn't the model that I ordered( received a better model), and for the non filled quantity, they did refund me.
PLC stands in middle of the logistic supply chain, they deal with the order, stock and source request discrepancy all the time, so it is a common practice between distributors to show some parts that they don't have or simply fail to show what they have, and some parts seen "back order" more often than others.
