    HTP Gas Fitting 90

    Does anyone know where to find a gas fitting that is 90 on this invertig 221 htp? I am waiting to put the cover over the machine without having to fight it over the gas in line and looking for "1/4" BS fitting"s are not getting me the correct fitting type. I found one on ebay but it's only got a inverted cone inside of it so it has no sealing abilities for this machine.
    Here is kind of what I am looking for but this one DOES NOT WORK: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-4-6mm-Bar...e-b3cdab1c4d21

    Are you putting the cover on correctly?

    There IS a FRONT side and back side........


    I never had a problem getting the cover on mine.

    Seems unless the cover has slot the hose sticking out the back would interfere with the cover going on over it easily.

    We are talking about vinyl protective covers not the machine cover itself. Correct ?


    This is the typical 90 for inert gases.

    The stock HTP cover has a cut out in back for the gas line and a cut out in front for the dinse plugs.

    If you try to put it on backwards you will have a hard time.



    Hate to say it, But it's pretty Obvious which way it goes on....

    We are talking about the vinyl cover. If you didnt mind velcroing It every time it wouldnt matter, but I am looking to drop it on and pull it off John. This is because it is up high and back in a corner.
    Danielplace, that looks like it but I am thinking that male cone would need to have a female swivel threaded nut on there instead of that male threaded one...

    Your machine must be female inlet isn't it ? They always are because all made up factory inert gas lines are male at both ends. One for machine and one for the regulator.

    That male should thread right in the machine and the female would accept the hose.

    Not sure why it wouldn't work unless the HTP has a whacked gas inlet. Usually a female. Never mind I just looked it up and finally found it on video since HTP doesn't have any decent pictures anywhere I could find of the back.

    It has male threads sticking out. That is a$$ backwards. Yes I am sure you could do something to get the 90 but that one would have been perfect and exactly what it is designed for. You start adapting things then the 90 will stick out to far.

    ..
    I NEVER velcro the back of the cover... I drop it on... maybe give it a slight pull (like any cover) and it drops right down all the way..... And the straight gas fitting comes through the cut away....

    It's perfect.

    maybe you got a bum cover...? who knows....

    Lots of HTP owners here..... Maybe another 221 owner will chime in.

    My cover is from 2013 so it doesn't have velcro anything. I have to disconnect the gas line when I put the cover on. This other cover must be a lot newer.

    danielplace, since you found that fitting for me, I'm going to get it and see if that joint is just soldered together. If it is, I got another fitting that I can drill the swivel nut off of and I'll try putting it on your fitting to make it work.
    Wish I could post pictures on this to save you guys some time looking things up.

    Here is the backside of my cover.

    It does what it supposed to do.... Cover the machine.

    I guessif you really wanted to nitpick,
    You could pull it down maybe another quarter inch.... but not enough to make a big deal about.

    And even if you did,
    It would only require is a small slit with a razor knife.

    Much to do about nothing if you ask me

    Yeah I know you didnt ask.

    FOUND ONE!!!!!
    They are calling it a "Flowfit BSP 90 Swivel Female Hydraulic Hose Fitting" on ebay. Get the 1/4" BSPP 90 version. It ships from the UK but was not very long at all.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Flowfit-BSP...72.m2749.l2649

    Just keep the velcro loose and toss the cover on and off. Seems to be working well so far.
