  • CFH flow meter tester

    Picked up one of those CFH flow checkers on eBay to check my welding gas regulators/flow meters. All I can say is wow. My tig flow meter was right on. My Miller supplied mig regulator was off on the low side, I had to turn the reg up to 30cfh to get 20cfh at the gun. And my preset Lincoln reg was set at like 40cfh. This thing will pay for itself in gas savings in no time.

    I'm glad you posted that. I've had that thing in my shopping cart on eBay for about two years and haven't pulled the trigger.

            You could make your own marks on there once you figure out the conversion. Then you don't have to do the conversion anymore.

              We use one when we have long runs of gas line up to our feeders at elevation and our bottle bank is in the ground.

                They are a cheap way to verify actual flow at the nozzle

                            I still put the torch near my cheek to feel if the shielding gas is flowing. But that would be the post flow anyway. Not really interested in tickling my face with the HF.

                              Ive tried that but I can't tell if its gas or the heat radiating off my glowing red cup....

                              Its a problem. Now I just look for the gold sheen in my weld and if its there, I am happy.
