    Yes but not sure this required tightening force is normal.
    Someone with a french cylinder (mine is german) with a similar gasket tells me he just need to tighten about 10 degrees after initial tightening by hand.
    I had to tighten mine much more than 10 degrees, so there may still be an issue with the metal surfaces (or poor gasket quality).

    So today I try again a leak test before starting welding, yesterday pressure was hold for 2 hours and today it already lose 1 bar every few seconds...

    This really starts to get on my nerves, I cannot be confident with a system like that, going from airtight to not airtight anymore over a night.

    Idk what to do now, tighten a bit more again ?

    edit: tightened a bit more again, seems to hold pressure again now. Double-checking there is no leak for 15min before I start welding.
