Can anyone help - I am after a Victor UN-J elbow to fit a J-28 brazing torch. The part number is Victor - 0325-0101.
I appreciate this is a very specific thing, but I am having real problems getting one in the UK. Neither Victor or ESAB (Victor dealers/owners in Europe) will supply one, and although there are a few US companies that have them, there seems to be a minimum spend tied into Brexit/VAT and I may be looking at £150 for a bit of bent copper tube!
Do you have/can you get any victor elbows?
I'm wondering if making your own version of the 0325-0101 would be easier?
Maybe something like this mutlijet neck from welders warehouse could be bodged into another Victor elbow?
Thanks, @M_V - if I could guarantee that the neck to torch body was correct, you're right, I could just tap a new thread onto the nozzle end and hey presto! So, I would need a neck with a female 9/16" 22tpi fitment. I'll have a look at that one you link to but I can't see a spec for the threads... And what I (seem to have?) learned over the last 4 weeks of searching is that there is no single standard for torch threads. They are even worse than bottom brackets!! ;-)
I don't suppose anyone has one of these handy and has already worked out the thread size?
Looks like an ebay seller in the US has some fixed nozzles for a J-28; I am thinking I will cut the nozzle off and tap the end to accept the replaceable tips, kinda like you suggest, @M_V
If I had realised how hard it would be to find all the required kit to get this torch running... Although these torches are really well thought of in framebuilding circles (so I am led to believe), the threads, connectors and nozzles are all US sizes and not available outside the US.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
