Hopefully somebody here can help me. I'm building a CO2 setup and the regulator I bought has the output at a weird angle, much like the Victor in the OP. I realize the bubble counter in that example is not perfectly plumb, but here is my quandary.
I managed to fix the slight crookedness in that photo
I have a 45d angle piece on order, but it may not come any time soon. If I use a 90d piece out of the regulator and later off of the needle valve, will the angle be too steep for the bubble counter?
You can use multiple angled parts to achieve a perpendicular (to the floor) bubble counter. Remember we are working in three dimensions.
