Smile Re: CO2 for Nano

I want to know if anybody followed magicmagni's post on building CO2 for the Nano tank with a soleniod valve as an option as oppose to the ADA. If so, did you get your regulator from Leland? I am able to put together most of the parts but from regualtor to my soleniod valve of 1/8" NPT to 10/32, don't I need a male 1/8" to a 10-32 female reducer? Anybody is a search engine guru I appreciate a bit direction please. I will posted once I get everything together for whoever wants to build their own CO2 for the nano tank. Many thanks!

I believe that the thread is pretty old. The parts would added up to almost the cost of a new ADA system.

If you check in the Swap n Shop, there was someone selling a nano CO2 system they bought from Taiwan. There isn't a standard valve, but he somehow made a DIY connector to refill the nano tank from a standard 5#, 10#...etc tank.

Those are two options you can pursue.
