I managed to salvage a diaphragm from a regulator one of the technicians was breaking down for the brass and copper, I've yet to actually use it but it's tough stuff, it came with a short brass bolt with a nut clamped through the middle.

It's sounding like your sealing face is actually too close to the size of your barrel.

When you look at the used sealing face, can you tell where the barrel has been making contact?

I actually thought your "gangster lifestyle" one fit you well... :wink:

There's really no need to keep changing your avatar. People get used to spotting you that way then we all have to mentally change gears when you change. Pick a good one and stick with it for a while.

kk sorry, back on topic now.

I agree with that. When someone changes his avatar I just get like huh who is that?
I liked your old one with the bunch of fittings on it the most.
