By chance do you still have some needle valves available for sale? Or pm me a place to order from? Looking for needle valves with 1000psi.

Thanks Kim

Googled on off ASA on fleebay and found Shocktech Paintball Dovetail Mount On/Off ASA which looks like the 1st 1 you used for $18. Reviews are bad on it, though. May have to get the custom brand for $30.

I notice the 1st ASA you used is by Shocktech and the other from Custom Products. Why did you change? Why did you not put a gauge on the later 1?

What is it suppose to read. What is the max psi on your gauge?

I can't find the section.

Hilde Will an On/Off Valve with 3000 Psi Gauge work?

boredom.is.me Actually, I bought my own container of O+. I don't cap them though. I only posted that as a reference.

I would have gone with that regulator if I got a full size CO2 tank.

Is anyone here using a AQUATEK CO2 Regulator Mini or the
cool touch 1? cool touch 1?
Pros and cons?

Screw it. I'm going with the black diamond. I've never had any issues with it in the past. I'll just mix O+ beads in.
I would wait until after the Atlanta auction to get your substrate. Sometimes you can get some there.

What are O+ beads?

boredom.is.me Sadly I already ordered it. The ETA is from the 16th to the 30th. I won't be able to set up the tank till next week, but I still need the substrate.

Very nifty. Are you going to look on fleebay for 1?
