Anybody have a model number or product description for the correct regulator that is needed for an R-size oxygen bottle? I bought a areation stone from B3.
My local welding supplier is having a difficult time helping me and says there are 100's of regulators.

I can't give you a number but I was in Home Depot the other day and asked the guy working if I could buy just the regulator. He said you can, but not there. He recommended going to Woodcraft, he thought they had them. I checked Fleet Farm (for those who don't know what that is imagine Home Depot with farm and automotive supplies) but they didn't have them. Haven't made it to Woodcraft yet.
Just another option.

Have you tried St.Pats? They do have the smaller regulators for around $13

You need a regulator with a #540 inlet. This is the CGA number, and is standard for most refillable O2 bottles, with the exception being the small medical units. It's the same connection used for the O2 bottle in an oxy-acetylene welding setup. You can find them on eBay (got mine their - cheap!) or maybe pick up a used one from your local compressed gas supplier.
Mike, I believe you're talking about the "regulator" for the little BernzOmatic O2 bottles. I have only seen these available separately from Homebrew suppliers. MernzOmatic customer service says they are not available separately, FWIW.
