Do a search of it on your favorite search engine would be a start... and/or remove the mig gun and hose and bring it to you LWS to see if they can match up the parts for you. Look on craigslist for a used regulator--shouldn't be anything special. Pics would help us help you...

I have no pics and cant take any as my camera is broken. Its at the bottom of the list of electronics I need to replace...
Just google image "astro power mig 110"
Anyway, the story is that the gun was leaking gas, and cutting in and out with wire feed and what not. And screweing around with that, the regulator broke. Is there any other regulators on welders other than the one for the gas? I think its a regulator that has something to do with the electrics.

Are there universal hoses and guns available for migs?

Hmm, sure enough... Google brings a thread up from 2004 here as being the second result. http://www.shopfloortalk.com/forums/...read.php?t=849

That tells me pretty quick that you may have a heck of a time replacing parts on that machine. I've never seen one, but it does have some resemblance to the Century branded welders from the pics in that thread. I'm far from an expert but maybe someone here would be able to help a little more.
