Check your local home brew stores "wine & beer" for the regulator.
You should be able to get 1 for about $60 CAD.

Clippard makes a good needle valve, maybe try your local welding stores.

The needle valve to get is the Clippard MNV-4K2 This has two 1/8" hose barbs on it so you can run it inline, or you can get it with the parts to hook it right on the regulator. But I prefer to have the needle valve as close to the bubble counter/reactor as I can. You find your local distributor at www.clippard.com

AquaBotanic.com has a great set - Im using both in my setup and they work great for me. I can get upto 1 bbl a min with that needle valve.

Thats my 2 cents.
