Orifice/Valve T-Handle

The Orifice/Valve T-Handle was redesigned in 2003 to extend the tool function to include two basic repair bench jobs. One end of the tool is used to install/remove the standard slotted orifice used in most diving industry second stages (see top drawing). The tool body is machined from cold roll steel and a dowel pin is pressed into the driver end to hold the orifice stable while it is being installed. This assembly of the body and the pin is done prior to plating so that the entire unit can be protected by the nickel chrome finish. The cross tee handle is a stainless steel tension pin that is set in from the end of the tool to allow the tool to be freely rotated by the thumb and index finger. This orifice tool eliminates the problem of scratching the internal o'ring land of the regulator air barrel, and replaces the stubby screwdriver normally used to do this job. The machined shoulder above the driver bit fits the internal bore of the air barrel (.370") providing the proper alignment while the driver is engaged with the orifice. The opposite end of the tool has a raised drive bit that fits most diving industry valve handle retainers (see bottom drawing). A relief hole is drilled in the center of the drive bit to bridge over any protrusion of the threaded valve seat stem. The tool is shipped with a protective plastic cap for hand comfort. *This tool will fit all orifices with a standard slot that is at least .045" wide. It will not fit Oceanic® orifices or some older orifices made in the early 1970s.
