I think I charged $230 something shipped for the above Victor. What I charge varies a lot though. If I get a good deal, I pass the savings along.

...I'm definitely hitting you up in the future, or you can let me know whenever you have something good in. I'd gladly take it off your hands.

How does the strap that hold your your tank attach to the wall?

I get the actual regulator from eBay and the rest of the parts through various online vendors and sometimes I have to use a local distributor. If you take a look at the how to build a regulator thread (found in the sticky at the top of the equipment forum) I believe I left a lot of links where you can get stuff.

I would swap out that metering valve on the matheson. That is a medium flow valve which might be ok, but you would be much better served with an slow flow swagelok or an ideal valve.
