welding gage question

i have a mm212 with a bottle of Ar/Co2 mix. the stock valve, smith, that came with it seems to have failed, at least partially. on the high side the gage seems to show the bottle psi, on the low side the gage is off the scale to the high side. i'm not sure if there is psi in the line to the gun or not. i didn't realize the problem until i tried to lay some welds and they looked worse than my normal, unskilled welding ability would lay. looked like a lot of swiss cheese.

i have these two sets of gages that i had rebuilt about a yr ago, haven't used them yet. would either, or both, of these be ok to use with my miller?

ok, i don't know why i can't post the pic. when i click the img icon and the info window pops open it's opened with "http//" in the box although it's highlighted. i've kept it in the box and attached the info for my pic, which i've copied below. i've delete the http// that is highlighted in the box, and tried variations of parts of the info below but no luck. first help on the pic please, then help on the gages.

thanks for your time.

You need to right click on the image and click "Copy image url". Then paste that into the img tag (or popup box). It appears you used the share button on flickr or something instead.


The one on the left appears to be an acetylene regulator, and i'm guessing the one on the right is an oxygen regulator. Neither are what you want.
The Acetylene regulator will have reverse threads, and uses a different fitting on the tank. The Oxygen regulator fittings should work, but the gauge measures PSI not flow rate (i.e. CFM). Internally I dont know if there is a difference or if it is just the gauge, but its not going to work for you in its current state, either way.
