This seems like a very nice idea! Do you know the max pressure for the kind of needle valve you are using?

I found this guy, originally intended to inflate bicycle tires. It's called the Red Zeppelin by Planet Bike. There's a valve of sorts on the top to control flow out of the CO2 cartridge, I wonder if the Schrader can be removed and replaced with a needle valve and a nipple?

This thing retails for about 20 bucks, it might be worth a shot to try to rig something up.

Do these little tanks have liquid co2, just like their larger counterparts? If so, then couldn't larger tank setups theoretically use similar setups due to similar pressures? It might be beneficial for any of these setups to get a needle valve that is actually rated for the about 850 psi that co2 cannisters with liquid usually have. I called up a few needle valve companies; one guy said I couldn't do it, another said that it's possible, but the co2 output wouldn't be consistent. Sounds like dolla is already manually adjusting output and this isn't too time intensive. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
