No, they're perfectly fine. It's an inside joke because Alan and Betta have dissed the Victor regulator a lot. Just don't dare put an Ideal needle valve or a Burkert solenoid on it though. (Also an inside joke. Ideal and Burkerts are good as well.)

What would be a good price for an HPT 500?

Where can you get a replacement adjustment knob? Are they easy to swap out? Mines old and beat up.

You'll probably need to call a distributor or the manufacturer. It requires removing the nameplate on the knob to expose the nuts. Relatively easy to do. Also, while you're at it, you can adjust the maximum working pressure to something more ideal for your purposes. If it's too low, you can increase it.

There is a heavy duty harris 9296 at the moment, good luck.

Just picked up a stainless steel Parker IR6000. Nicest and smallest regulator I have seen. It's very convenience for tight space. Posting pix soon.

Is it a rebuild? I was watching one of these also. They are nice!

NICE! Those are around $1k new from what I was told. I'm glad you scored such a great regulator. The minimal look is quite appealing. I haven't checked on the bay but I hope the one I have bookmarked on my laptop is still there, I'm getting it next week if so.

Congrats!

Thanks! In my opinion this ir6000 and the matheson 3871+ are very useful for our purpose because of the small size. They fit nicely inside the stand.

Next to the hpt500 and matheson 3810. As you can see the ir6000 is shorter and the pressure knob is smaller.


The air products gauges are huge. I'm going to look for smaller gauges.

So far so good with the first stage leakage test. This is going to be my baby.
