Hey All

I recently bought the 14 dollar DIY C02 kit off of Amazon....worked great until the needle valve gave up the ghost....
I cannot seem to find an equivalent replacement, preferably of better quality.
Anybody know a good source for these?

Can I use that inline only, such as air tubing in and out and thats it?
I am looking for something as similar as the original but better quality.
It would also be nice if it could also serve as a shutoff valve.

If you want something that is inline, then you can use the NV-55.

Most needle valves are not meant to be used as shut off valves. For that, you will want a solenoid (if you were using pressurized CO2). However, as you are using DIY CO2, there is really no way to shut it off.
