I have a decent metal working shop, been getting into blacksmithing over the last few years, along with the carpentry work I do for bread and butter these days. This older fellow I was doing a remodel for came up to my shop and saw that I have a miller legend generator welder as my main welder.
At the end of the job he said he had a blue box I might like, gave me a miller HF250D-1 high freq box (with the necessary and expensive secondary contactor already installed) a Tec 250 amp water cooled torch, and a box full of tig tips, nozzles, and related stuff.
SO, after years of stick welding I've upgraded to TIG and MIG. Boy, he really lit up my welding scene.
Now, whats interesting about this valve, that looks a lot like the one in your vids, is that on the sides someone had stamped the words...HELIUM and on the other WATER.
I wonder why you would want a spring activated double valve for those???
