Ok, so I have a pair of regulators very similar to these...
2 Piece Set Oxygen & Acetylene Regulator Harris Type Large Tank Gauge Cutting Torch Regulator

Would it be possible to use either one (with a adapter to connect to the co2 hose) on a co2 setup?

Thanks!

I mean, it's basically the same thing as a CO2 regulator, and brass is nonreactive so that's good, but you may have to rig some extra hardware bits and pieces to get it to be compatible with a standard CO2 cylinder. I also only see a single valve, where most CO2 regulators have 2, and these also do not have solenoids so you'd either have to manually turn them on and off or let it run 24/7.

IMO you're better off getting a cheaper CO2 regulator with solenoid. Most of them have built in bubble counters as well.

I think by the time you get it rigged to the tank it would be cheaper just to get the right regulator.
