Help - Victor J-28 torch bits

Posted on
  • Hello
    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!
    Ever hopeful...

  • 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.
