Free Vintage Regulator Early 70's

I just replaced my regulator and can't bring myself to throw the old one away until I offer it to anyone who might want to rebuild it. It leaks.







It's free and if shipping isn't too much I'll even pay that. It's a continuation of "Paying Forward" that I was the beneficiary of in another thread. (Thank you Bob.)

REBUILDING ANY LPG REQULATOR, IS FOOL HARDY.

My former neighbor, was national sales manager for Robert Shaw controls.

Repair parts ARE NOT AVAILABLE.

Never have, never will.

Any failure with an LPG regulator, except pressure adjustment, especially a leaky one, deems it extremely hazardous, and belongs in the trash.

Of course, some people still point a loaded gun at their head too.

Andy

Thank you for your insight Andy. I'm still sending it. It's up to the recipient as to how they handle it. Although I've rebuilt many other regulators (professionally) without incident. (Chlorine gas, assorted other nasty chemicals both flammable and non-flammable.) I assumed the same was possible with propane as long as proper care and parts were used.

Many attorneys, love people that rebuild things that can blow up. They make great money, defending somone's foolishness.

BS means "Be safe" instead of "being sorry."

In spite of being an outstanding DIY, know one yet, has figured out a way to bring back a life, or to unmaim an innocent person. Patch up yes, unmaim no.

Safety issues for some, are for those that clean Lions dens.

"Harm can't happen to me," is another one of lifes "myth's."

Keep it holstered Andy! No one said anything about rebuilding. Old propane reglators, like National Forests, are things "of many uses".
