Hoke and Swagelok are going to be compatible. For that matter, all the "lok"s are going to be compatible. And if the threads are identical, I'd get a couple 1/4" nuts and ferrules from any lok...

Confused about what's going on here.

In the original link, the final picture is a Parker HR series valve. If you didn't get that, it's a shame, but what you do have in the pictures you included...

In that case, assuming there's still some CO2 in the cylinder, you can check to see if the LP gauge still works. Leave the solenoid closed, open the cylinder, check to see the HP gauge moves up,...

The 22 series will work fine. Whitey has been owned by Swagelok for quite a while, which doesn't really have any impact on the valve, other than to suggest that every company associated with...

Well, at least you got all the important stuff!

I'd ditch that check valve and the old CO2 line. It's a little odd that your LP gauge is showing vacuum pressure of about 20 psi. Maybe clip the...

1. GLA has good-quality products, period. There's not another retailer that I can say that about. And because of shipping and retail costs, you wouldn't save much if you purchased the same...

If you're measuring the diameter of the outlet port of the regulator, and you're getting just over 1/2", what you have is likely a 1/4" NPT port, which is pretty standard. I believe Clippard makes a...

I can't help with Canadian sourcing, but I can confirm it's a really good reg at a great price, especially NIB. It retails for over $200 US. The LP range is good, and if you care about aesthetics,...

Most people don't think too much about what circuits are GFCI protected. If the house was built fairly recently, or if wiring renovations were done according to code (which isn't always the case),...

That looks like an early Bettatail job. Two of the ports (the one with the screw, and the one with the tiny AS-1200 valve) should be basic 10-32 ports, and the AS-1200 can be unscrewed and replaced...

True. But this is not the most likely scenario. In any case, it's easy enough to test with a $10 GFCI plug-in tester.

There's no way 1/4" tubing will fit over a 1/4" barb. Are you sure about that size? Barb size refers to the inside diameter of the tubing. Push-to-connect fitting size refers to the outside...

Just as a reminder for others, you can only use a solenoid valve if you're already using a pressure regulator on the cylinder. So for those cartridge units, or DIY paintball cylinders that use...

Anywhere between 10 and 50 or so. Lower end for reactors, higher end for Atomizer-style diffusers. Also lower end if you're using a needle valve that's not very precise, but higher end if you find...

I'd read it as 20, but because it's an analog gauge, and because it's got a high max pressure relative to what you're trying to set it at, 15-25 psi would be more realistic, if not more accurate. If...

I can't speak for Rich, but I know that when trying to take a nipple off with a pipe wrench - maybe 14-18 total regs - I've failed twice. I think I managed to get one of the two off, eventually,...

I've found that a pipe wrench usually works for nipples that don't have large flat surfaces that a standard wrench or socket might grab. I've had better luck with a pipe wrench than a bench vise.

I actually can't remember if I've ever found them, but my guess is you should be able to find the 1/4" connectors online. However, that's also a mounted model (do you have a mount?) and requires a...

That should work fine, but you'll need a needle valve as well. The Fabco-Air NV-55 (inline model) would work well, since you're already running the solenoid valve inline. You'll need compression...
