    Default using airline quick disconnect for argon line?

    hey all

    Is anyone using air line quick disconnects for argon lines? I decided to try some and wasn't sure how to test if they leak except for placing them in a bucket of water. I don't really see any bubbles. Would these leak over time? Or are they are pretty reliable? thanks

    I made a video if anyone wants to see

    Spray it with some soapy water to better check for leaks, watch for bubbles.

    You can use them, Milton is a well known name brand verses the big box store ones.

    However, they are not as good as say a western which is what I use and I have them on all my suit case feeders and torches so we are talking about 8 fittings over the last 21 years that I have been using them.

    With the cost of mixed gas at around $ 45.00 its not worth it to me, Your better off bucking up and spending the money.

    It takes less inert gas than you think, to make a life-threatening situation, especially in a small garage/shop. There is a reason some connectors are rated for air, others are rated for flammalble/oxidizer/inert gases. Use the correct connector for the purpose it was designed for.
    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

    Mine is between the machine and the torch, low pressure and only under pressure when I am on the pedal.
