Wink Joshism's CO2 regulator builds

Here's one of my latest builds requested by my customers. I'll probably post some of my previous builds later.

I'll probably add a 1/4 compression fitting for the tubing because this customer prefers not to have an attached bubble counter.

Need your opinions please. I'm debating if I should use this tube compression stainless steel check valve in front of my metering valve or not. I was hoping to find something with 1/8" NPT instead, and then add a 1/4" tube compression adapter to connect air line tubes in the front. Looks too long to me. Maybe I can just use a 1/4" tube adapter and attach the check valve in line with two tube inserts.

Since Photobucket charges us to link to our photos that we uploaded on their site, I decided to use another photo hosting site. But it's taking forever for me to dig through my hard drive for these photos. I've only been able to update a few. I'll have them up and running again soon.

A bit tarnished, but in very good condition. Just needed a little bit of polishing, and it looks like it's made out of pure gold. This one looks like one of my previous ones, but it has a Burkert 6011 and a Hoke 1300 metering valve instead of a Clippard mouse and a Fabco metering valve.

Oh my. This thread is like regulator porn. I feel slightly naughty and aroused.

Airgas 360-2-580-V-05. Dual metering valves. I like this arrangement more than how others assemble 2 metering valves.

This looks almost a lot like to my recent build, except for the needle valve!

What is the molded plug you using to come off the solenoid spades? I just have two thin wires with spade terminals - which isn't very robust and looks sloppy.

Yours looks much cleaner. Where can I find one?
