    Hi all
    I was wondering if anyone could show me where I can buy a Co2 regulator for a disposable cylinder (like the welding ones). I've found that, as long as I buy them from Machine Mart on a VAT free day, they work out cheaper than buying a fire extinguisher and refilling it (since refils are £15 for 500g in MA and it's £7.99 for a 600g bottle). The problem is, I can't find a regulator that fits! Any links would be most helpful.
    Thanks!

    I have seen diposable regulator converters to fit on a refillable so you must be able to get a reg.

    Any regulator for disposable cylinders such as JBL, D@D, etc. should fit. However, I don't have an ebay address for a non-branded one - is that what you're looking for?

    Old thread raise, but after buying some '3rd party' cheaper non-refillable cannisters from a well known online shop which we all know and love, it was nothing more than the exact same cannister sold by Machine Mart, obvious from the fact that there was a new 'aquarium' info sticker placed over the top of the Machine Mart style sticker.

    I've been using the Machine Mart 600gm cannisters for about 6 months now with no ill effects - and £9.75 a cannister is much cheaper than online shops, especially once delivery is taken into account.
