Okay, so its been awhile since I've had to think about my CO2 setups... but I'm upgrading some of my DIY CO2 tanks to compressed CO2. I have the tank and pressure regulator purchased relatively cheaply, but now I need to find a 'T' to split the line between the two tanks and needle valves for each line. Anyone know of any sources for such equipment (hopefully within driving distance )

Clippard has devices that can be used as manifolds and of course makes the MNV-4k2 valve that many people use. Check their site for distributors which may be near you.

Damn, the suppliers I dealt with today don't have what i need. I suppose I'm going to order the 3 outlet unit from AB.

There isn't any problem with AB shipping to canada is there?

I can't see how it would cost much more than $5 to ship it! Do you need it overnight?
Robert will be able to give you the correct amount though!
