There are a couple of Hydraulics supply houses here in town that can match
just about any kind of fittings.  As Boise is a fairly small town, I would
guess that where you live there is at least one place specializing in that
kind of stuff.  Look in the phonebook and then take the kit and a cartridge
down there.  They can probably build you a hose to adapt between your CO2
device and just about anything including a 50-lb CO2 fire extingusher.  Your
supply bottle may be of a higher than the cartridge, and a regulator of some
kind may have to be positioned between your supply bottle and the Boiplast
