    wrong section sorry - AHP 201dx gas hose quick connect

    Is the AHP gas hose a standard size? 3/16? I see there are a number threads pertaining to 201dx gas hose issues and I want to eliminate the cheesy quick connect gas fitting at the front of the machine and put on a 5/8-18 threaded inert gas fitting like the Miller DX et al use. I see it as a potential source for leaks and I am getting grey stainless welds and want to ensure it isn't a leak issue.. I realize there are a hundred other factors but want to address the leaks issue for certain. Working to get a portable flowmeter for the torch head as well.

    Sorry - this is in the wrong section, can't delete

    It’s a quick disconnect fitting, 9mm I think. Most new machines all use this connector. It’s called a QDGAP connector.

    I used the adaptor to fit a universal WP26 torch.

    It doesn't sound like he's looking for an adapter, but rather a way to get rid of the quick disconnect and replace it with a threaded fitting.

    The adaptor adapts the quick disconnect plug on the welder to a threaded fitting

    That won't get rid of the quick connect ? A adapter is not the answer when he wants to eliminate the quick connect altogether.

    He is looking for the panel mount standard bulkhead fitting for 5/8-18 thread gas line.

    Western AW15A is a 1/4" pipe to inert gas right hand 5/8-18 but what you really want is the same thing in a bulkhead style.

    Use this part along with a 1/4" pipe to barb fitting for the hose on the backside and use that fitting to retain the part in the front panel.
