  • Replacement Gauge Glass

    The flow gauge on my regulator is missing the plastic "glass" cover. It is a screw-on type. Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement? I've looked around a bunch of welding sites but can't find a source. Maybe I'm not searching for the right item? I believe it's 2.25" diameter. Thanks.

      Hey Matt,
      The easiest thing to do is simply take the gauge outer rim off, lay it on a welding hood lens plastic cover, trace the outline & after cutting, dress it off on a fine grit belt sander. I've made several that way over the years.

        Even easier. The local welding supply place has a Victor sponsored trade-in program. Buy a victor regulator and get $x off. Well, the trade in regulators are all sitting in a big box - if you ask nicely they might let you dig through and find a piece of glass that fits.

        Also, if you have your regulator rebuilt, they typically replace the glass if its scratched up etc. (but you do pay for it).
