    Guys,

    I've lost pard of my CO2 regulator. The screw sleve type thing which you slide over the CO2 tubing that you then screw to the main body of the regulator to stop it leaking - is the bit i've lost. Do you know where i can get another??

    Do the imports have different types of thread?

    If not then i'll just get that needle valve, unless anyone wants to sell me one of theirs?? If so drop me a PM.

    This is the one I have

    I tried using the one off the bubble counter (i'm not using this as it doesnt screw on properly and therefore leaks co2) but its a different thread to that of the regulator.

    Ok I got that and its the wrong thread again so I'm still stuck.

    Anyone got a spare they are willing to see to me?

    Thinking about it, as I have a new needle valve now, can i just replace this in the regulator? It looks like its glued in though but I can see it has a thread on it.

    What about taking the rig down to a hardware shop near you, they might have a few drawers full of odd threads\sleeves etc. (I say this as I used to work in a lighting shop as a teenager, and this is something we stocked) Those sorts of things are usually made of brass so as long as they fit then they will be fine to use.

    Faliing that I don't see why you can not put a new needle valve on, not something I have ever tried myself though!
