    Default Gas / Argon Hose Nut And Nipple Identification

    The nipple on the right broke off at the hose. For reference, the nipple on the left is spec'd as a 3/16" nipple. The 1/8" nipple (I assume it's an 1/8" nipple) I found in the link below has a 5/8" thread nut. What I have has a 3/8" thread.

    Argon hose fittings sets for 1/8 ID hoses at BRW Technologies. Argon and inert gas fittings in stock.

    I don't know how to find this. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Might want to take a look at McMaster Carr...if they don't have it, you probably don't need it

    The nut and the barb are sold individually, Maybe that barb is also used on water lines or ?
    Western Enterprises has these fittings, look around for "inert arc":

    All that was of help. Thanks.

    It appears I need an AW-24, A size, 1/8" inert arc nipple. It also appears that Western Enterprise is the only one that has it in stock. The only one except for this bozo that wants $34.50 for one. AW-24 NIPPLE (NP66) | eBay

    Not sure Western Enterprise will sell me just one. I'll call them Monday and find out.

    This is from Western: http://westernenterprises.com/wp-con...d-Adaptors.pdf

    Now you have a part # see if your local welding store can get it for you, they should be ordering regularly from them.
