    Nitrogen regulator

    Looking for part number/ manufacturer of regulator that has plastic "hand tightened" nut for tank connection. I saw one several years back, but I didn't get number off it. I'm wondering if I can find just the hand nut and install on my current regulator?

    Be sure to check PSI ratings on brass fittings before connecting. A full nitrogen tank contains about 2500 psi. Most hardware store brass fittings are only rated at 125 psi.
