About the Mouse and the SMC1200, well I do not want to use a smc1200. Not as much control as I would like. I love the mouse, but I do not want to have to up the 10/32 size tot he 1/8 and create more compnents. Because I am going to run a JBJ bubble counter off it.

The variety of sizes will ensure something fits

I usually go for something about 4-5 mm in diameter. Fits well around the 14 AWG wire I use (don't forget the shrink tube has to fit around the insulation too).

Btail or oldpunk let me know if you come across a good deal on say a Burkert 6011 or a 2822. I am looking for one as I do not like doing size changes, as those barbs are not the best to deal with.

He's talking about the 2822.

I've got a solenoid I don't need at the moment. Sending pm.

Hello oldpunk78,

Just wanted to drop in and thank you for this guide. It was most useful in helping me along the way of selecting and assembling my regulator.

This was my parts layout:



After a few weeks of shopping out the parts (stalking ebay and other sites), the remaning parts arrived last evening and I finished assembly:



Today is leak testing day... Coming up on 6 hours now and the pressure is holding rock solid steady:



I am really looking forward to fitting it up very soon. Looks like the 2L DIY bottles are going into retirement... lol...

Thank you again for taking the time and effort to post such an informative thread for noobs like me.

peace,
