Someone to Weld on Fittings

Postby 69-er » Wed Nov 28, 2018 5:52 pm

Can anyone recommend someone who welds on beadlock fittings? I have two short tubes that need the barbs removed and beadlocks installed.

Maybe it would be easier to get new tubes with beadlocks?

Much better to replace the fittings.

Acquiring new bead lock fittings would be the best solution, Braze or welding the fittings back together will often times require rework from a pinhole leak.
Vintage Air carries these fittings with several options, It was hard to tell from the picture whether it is a #6,8 or 10?

if you go to our website and type in these part numbers in the search bar it will give you the description, or if you clicked on the product button you can see all the options we carry for bead lock fittings.
