I’m having trouble getting one of my nozzles on my Jrod to connect and disconnect. The other 3 nozzles no problem! I’ve only used it maybe 5 or 6 times. Any Ideas or suggestions? One other thing I’ve learned is my Jrod won’t connect to my lance with an insulated quick disconnect! Do they make a Jrod with a slightly larger space between nozzles to fit an insulated quick disconnect? Thanks for any input!
Sometimes you just need to run the plug over the grinder a couple of times. Those couplings with the blue rubber on the tip are annoying if you aren’t using a wand
How much space do you want in between them? If you want I’ll weld you one up and mail it your way. I probably won’t be able to get to it until this weekend. You’re not far from me so you’ll probably have it a day or two after I mail it.
Try taking a pair of pliers if you don’t have a grinder and take the rough off. Mine does that also. it doesn’t do it as often since I went with a k7 unloader
Try a new o-ring in the quick connect or see if another quick connect works better. The grinder is the best idea though.
The thermoplastic jrod holders will give you the space you need to use an insulated quickconnect. You can break apart your welds and reuse the tips and nozzles. May have to clean up the edge.
Thanks! I’ll try the grinder tomorrow.
I’m thinking 1/8" would be plenty. Its not something I need often but when you need it it’s frustrating. Let me know how much and where to send the check. Message me. Thank you!
Ive had the problem. I carry sand paper. The heavy stuff for sanding metal.(Can’t think of proper name) emery cloth? IDK something like that.
Keep your ends cleaned up and fitting nice.
Works for me!
Here’s the latest version of the Jrod I just got today. It fits an insulated quick connect and the square shape is kinda cool. Thanks again Brian @marinegrunt Some nice work!
how much for them?
Sorry, forgot to reply to you. No charge. I’ll throw one in the mail when I get a chance to make one. Might not be anytime real soon though. Pretty busy anyways but now I have a door to fix and paint after our newly turned 16 year old daughter backed out and hit the driver door on our neighbor’s Sierra. Their 16 year old daughter happened to be backing out at almost exactly the same time. You can tell by how they hit that the neighbor’s kid backed out a split second sooner so pretty much our daughter’s fault.
i will send you 12 nipples,
i like to make sure that they work on my QC first before welding
Its similar to the quad rod. If you weld them together they may warp slightly which is why they dont fit in your QC if you go with the poly versions not only do you not have to worry about them warping but you can replace one when it gets worn out instead of trashing the whole thing. @marinegrunt I’m not bashing your work they look great that’s what happened to me. If you set up a jig so you can keep them cool when you are welding you will be golden small water pan
I have 4 of the poly.
But @marinegrunt look cool
It won’t warp at all if you’re careful with the heat. Same idea as welding thin gauge steel such as body panels. Just have to watch the heat and use a heat sink if needed.
I will bite can you send me one. Let me know the price I can vendmo you if have it
If there is anyone i trust to weld me something its @marinegrunt he welds high pressure tubes and nuclear reactor heads
Yep… He did a great job on mine!
I want one
