Re: Hydrogen regulators?

Hi Hank,

The regulator doesn't seem to regulate, it is about 30psi out.

Turning the knob on the front makes it open or close/stop the flow of Hydrogen. 

Maybe it never adjusted, it just seemed right pressure and i accepted it.   It does make it a little be odd to fill balloons to a precise lift.  I have to use the valve on the tank itself to control anything.
The Smith regulator only does a fixed pressure step down.  No control on the regulator except open(~30psi) or closed (0psi).

For near space ballooning it gets the job done, and for only $45.  But a regulator that doesn't adjust regulation pressure does kind of freak some people out.
