somewhatshocked Yep, a manifold is pretty cheap. Needle valves should range from $5-$8 on eBay. Sometimes I've seen them at 5 for $15 as a package deal.

You can get a T from your local hardware store.

The needle valves will have to be sourced online, most likely.

oldpunk78 You could make an in-line manifold with smc needle valves for about $25. That's about as cheap as you could do it with 1/2 way decent parts.

Overgrowth That's what I thought. Oh well.

Darkblade48 +1. You will need two needle valves.
12-08-2012 09:16 PM yup you have to use two needle valves and bubble counters

oldpunk78 I won't work very well. You probably won't get an even split between the two. The gas will fallow the path of least resistantance.

Sharing CO2 between two tanks

Could I use a T-Valve or a gang valve to split the CO2 output? I know you're supposed to use a dual stage regulator with two needle valves, but I really don't want to spend any more money.
