looks good to me.
I have called around (in atlanta) and it seems that most local welders sell their canisters for $130 for 10lbs. filled.u can buy a 10 pound tank at ur local welding stores for alot less or go on ebay or another site , im sure u can get one for 40-60 bucks...I did
i live in the atlanta area and its hard to find a local place to get filled canisters and the places i did find were very expensive.I have called around (in atlanta) and it seems that most local welders sell their canisters for $130 for 10lbs. filled.
Miso, where did you get your canister from?i'll second that.

for co2, go to http://beveragecontrol.net/
10lbs filled for $9. it only takes a few minutes to fill it up.
(saves you $11)
i would also pick up a perma seal. i got one from rex. its not needed but you don't worry about picking up new washers everytime u get co2.
Yeah that!!=all the above.1) I bought my filled CO2 cylinders from my local welding supply company. I just swap them out when they are empty. I get aluminum cylinders sometimes and sometimes I get steel ones. It really doesn't matter. They're inside the wooden stands. I don't have to worry about getting them pressure checked either. I didn't have to pay for shipping either.
2) I wouldn't get the Milwaukee regulator. There's been many QC issues over the past few years. There's been good ones as well as bad ones. Get "The Best" regulator or one from Rex Grigg. Aqua Botanic has "The Ultimate" regulator. I forgot to mention the Azoo regulator. I have two and I haven't had any trouble with them.
4) Their CO2 tubing is that crappy blue silicone tubing that you can buy much cheaper anywhere. Get good CO2 tubing from somewhere else like Rex Grigg, Marine Depot, Tygon Lab from US Plastics, Aqua Botanic, etc.

You need a brass check valve. The Milwaukee doesn't have one on it's bubble counter like the JBJ regulator has. "The Best" does. I add another brass check valve in line for extra safety. Again Rex Grigg, Aqua Botanic, etc.
i get my co2 from my local coca-cola distributor. ~$20 the first time (deposit) and ~$8 each exchange (about 9-12 months).
i bought mine from ebay. it was from user aquatic-store.Miso, where did you get your canister from?
Hi JesstrayI am in the process of purchasing...equipment...for a new pressurized CO2 setup....
