Hi, I have got a walkover 555 brazing kit and I am struggling to find a new co2 cylinder (small can) . The fitting on the can is too big from places like hrp. Any suggestions ? halfords, welding supplies? Need one asap. working in harlow if anyone knows somewhere local.

Hi Brian , after this question I double checked what I was actually looking for. I purchased a walkover 555 kit from ebay with no cylinders a few years ago. I googled it at the time with no luck and thought for some reason I needed c02. Now double checking It is oxygen.
The problem I am having is brazing 1 1/8 on a Mitsubishi BC 410a box with a 3" stub and wrapping it with a wet cloth as it is taking all the heat. I phoned hrp today as I have had good reports on the scorpion kit to buy one and they told me they had another kit For 110. After looking at it, was the same as the kit I had with no cylinders.
My boss does not want to pay the rental charge on oxy/ acetylene, as it is not needed often.

FSW do an oxy mapp gas set, disposable mapp and exchange oxy bottle, no rental just swap the bottle when empty.

3 inch stubb to 1 1/8", and confusion with CO2 and O2 , rental issues etc., Get a contractor with all the right equipment would be my best suggestion.

Or get a double nozzle brazing torch.
