what is the size!??? on a regulator nut?

This sounds stupid but what the heck is the size of a co2 regulator nut? I've searched the net which offers the wrenches, I just want the size of the nut. What is it does anyone know? I'd like to just go down and pick up what I need at the hardware store.

On my Milwaukee regulator the nut diameter is about 1 1/8in (one inch and an eight of an inch). A larger adjustable wrench works well for this.

You need either a 12" Crescent wrench:



or a pipe wrench:



both are good to have around "just in case".
