We did this back in 1989. The local welding shop only had O2 regulators. The 
regulator itself is fine for use with CO2 - input and output pressures are
compatible. The only thing they have to do is unscrew the O2 bottle fitting and 
use a CO2 fitting instead. I would think most welding shops would have the CO2 
part to do this or could order it.
