Milwaukee CO2 regulator MA957 O-ring source


Hi:

I tried to do a search but did not find what I was looking for.

Does anyone have a source for the plastic o-rings that go in between the regulator and the cylinder?

Thanks!

You can buy the washer from welding supply and fire extinguisher stores. It costs less than a dollar each.

You sure they have what the OP is looking for? The specific washer for the Milwaukees isn't a generic plastic CO2 washer, as the nipple has a weird flange on it.

The only place I've ever heard of that carry them is Milwaukee itself. You could give them a call, or send an email to customer service.

+1 I had go get mine from Milwaukee also. I have asked the twice if there was anywhere to get 1, and they said that the 2 that come with the regulator should be used over and over again.

Thanks for the info. I emailed Milwaukee and promptly received the following response:
---------------------
The washers are soft pliable plastic and are designed to be reused over and over again. I will be glad to send you 2 out in the mail to your address posted below at no charge.

Best regards

You can see a picture of the nylon seal similar to what's sold at the fire extinguisher supply store in this link.
