  • Flowmeter questions

    A couple of flowmeter questions, can anyone recommend a reasonably priced flow meter? Not looking to break the bank but not looking for Harbor Freight junk either. Also is there such thing as a straight Argon regulator/flowmeter or is an Argon/CO2 regulator suitable?

    HTP flow meters are a great bargain.

      USAWeld.com, which is the website for HTP has the best deal I've found. Has scales Calibrated for both pure Argon and Argon/CO2 mix. $35 when I bought mine and it works great. And great people to deal with.

          Ya, I have to answer all the hard questions while you smart guys poor over the schematics and yada yada yada to tackle the easy things like, why a Q1 transdoofloppy fried when the ABC inductaflimflam got all gillflirted. Easy stuff. Using a spectotransformagram and an o-somethingsomething scope. I don't stoop to such matters that far beneath my superior intellect.

            The weight of the bars is truly debilitating!

                Yeah, I can't even make up words like that let alone use them in a sentence! :-)

                    They are expensive. I saved for months to get one of mine. Rich guy ryanjones2150 bought me another one for Christmas last year.

                      Busted_Knuckles,

                      If you already have a regulator, this is a real cheap flowmeter which may help.
                      I use it at my tig torch to double-check the setting on my Airco flowmeter.

                      Not sure how accurate it is but it sure beats my other home-made flowmeter.
                      PM me with your address and I'll ship you one.

                        Don't have a clue. Ryan and I suddenly went from 2 bars to full house; I think H80N did too. Aametalmaster is a moderator and has been here years longer than me -- he was stuck at 1 and recently got a "promotion" for some reason.

                            Bars are very hard to earn. Years and years of training and discipline and perseverance. One most learn the ways of full penetration rather than lack of fusion, solid welds rather than porosity, all positions rather than merely flat....and maybe huffing some brake cleaner....but definitely playing with the helium a bit too much though.....learn the way from Glenn Thorton...
