    Just get an argon regulator, I'm pretty sure the fitting is different on an oxygen bottle so you'd need an adaptor/new bullnose (I don't think they're available), the flow reading will be wrong with a gas of a different density and, at the risk of starting an argument from another thread, the old oxygen reg is probably out of date.

    The Ultra size Hobby Weld cylinders come with a regulator already fitted, the next size down might as well; so it'll be worth checking what size you want as it might already come with a preinstalled regulator.

    My big Ar/Co2 cylinder has an oxygen regulator on it and has been in use for years, works fine just make sure it's rated for the pressure in the cylinder and that it's the correct thread.
