    Meco Aviator Jet: Where to find tip adapter

    Good evening. I recently purchased a Meco Aviator Jet torch body, which included the cutting head, but no welding tips.

    1. (see picture below) I already know about the TinMan Tech adapter which allows you to put Meco Midget tips on a Meco Aviator--and I plan to get that.

    BUT...all of those are just the 'piece-of-threaded-copper-pipe-with-a-hole-in-it' part of the welding tip. Even companies who sell aftermarket tips for the Aviator (Meco AV series tips) only sell the screw-in copper pipe piece, not the attachment which fits on the end of the torch handle.

    Does anyone know the nomenclature or part number of that piece--or, ideally, a source for that piece?

    Is this piece interchangeable with the "WG" adapter (which I seem to be able to find occasionally).



    2. Is there anything special about the o-rings in the cutting head? Do I just find the same size to replace them? Do they sell 'kits' for o-rings, or do you just go buy the big-box-o'-o-rings at the auto parts store and find the same size? Is there any reason you cannot use the 'green' o-rings at the auto parts store?

    3. Does anyone have a source for a parts list or user manual?

    Not sure but you could try Tinman. Google him. He makes/sells the tips for your torch I think. Nice guy too. Best bob
