Snapped the end off the Tig hose for my Maxstar (Long story - involves poor cart design, kids and a trolley jack). The hose has a barbed nipple inserted into it and a threaded nut to attach it to the Maxstar specific connector (90 degree turn). The nipple itself is broken in two. Wondering if anyone is aware if there are parts or kits available to replace these? Doesn't look like there would be much to it other than crimping a new brass collar on the end of the hose. My LWS thinks there should be but has no idea what part numbers to look for. Given this connection needs to contain the gas and carry 150+ amps, it may be something they don't want us to fool with.
Any help would be appreciated - otherwise I guess I need a new hose - of course those are not in stock either.
