How much did that parker NV set you back(if you don't mind me asking)?
What model is it?
It's a Parker Metering Valve and the part number is 2F-H3L-V-SS-TC and it has the most revolutions per turn (15) that I've seen on a needle valve. I paid around $80 for it since the ideal one on Rex's website was $72 and this one is a little prettier, more revolutions and stainless. Plus, unlike most other needle valves, this claims it can hold direst tank pressure (though I'm not going to see if they are right).

Love the stand, and pretty much all the hardware too
The stand looks pretty beefy underneath. Is it just me, or is that really thick plywood?
Thanks! It's actually 3/4" plywood that's been double plied with water proof wood glue and screws. I live in a 2nd floor apartment so I decided to take no chances.
