even though it may not be that safe i just put a 3/8" hose over the nozzle of my propane torch, used a hose clamp to keep it on tight, sent the hose to a hose to thread adapter, you know just slip the hose over the end and theres little hooks to keep it on, hose clamp that, then thread that into a lttile 90 degree adapter so that it goes right into a hole i drilled safely through the coupling and the pipe. if the hole is the right size the 90 degree adapter should thread itself in.

I had a hard time deciding whether to spend money on a whole measuring and injection system or just those parts there to turn the valve on the torch itself on and off for easy yet not quite accurate propane.

the guy at my local hardware store knew exactly what i was looking for because my guess is that he used to be a spud gunner, but if you tell whoever is helping you what your looking for they ought to know what parts to get if they know about their products.

Then again yours isn't metered or regulated.
Idk,Im real mad right now.
All that money and I cant get my cannon to work.
I think I need a new ignition source and to adjust my propane meter accordingly.
