    Victor Kwik Connect

    so as far as I understand Victor and ESAB are a combined company? maybe someone on here will know/let me know... on the Victor Torch to hose Kwik Connects is there any way to buy just the "male" fitting that I can put on all my torches and not have to keep buy the sets? I called Victor/ESAB and the customer service person had not idea.. part number of the set is 0656-0000 thank you

    Customer service is clue less. Call tech support for these type of questions.

    Probably not, I believe they are sets only. You can easily get them individually from Koike. Much better product and no suffering from ESAB Lack of customer service.

    thats what I meant, it was a good hour long conversation about the "kwik connects" and probably 40 mins explaining their product to them, then the fact that I didn't want a set just for the oxygen side or acetylene side, then the confusion about calling the male connector a male bc it has female 9/16x18 tpi, so after all that was sorted out the very unassuring answer was "no....I don't think so"

    so then I looked into Koike and found I can buy each piece individually, although the only place I found them online was fastenal (any one have a better source?) but I just wanted to make one more final attempt before selling them and going to Koike.

    Here is the catalog. look at pages 6-8

    I used the catalog to get a list of part #'s then called airgas and had them place the order.

    I just realized this is an esab sponsored thread. Sorry esab. I didn't mean to poke you in the eye, but I do think these are superior quick connects
