I have a 3M Co2 Regulator with an Aqua Medic Solenoid and a Clipard needle valve and I would like to change this setup to add a JBL bubble counter and and set it up as 1 complete unit {like JBL offers or Milwaukee CO2 Regulators} Aquatic Magic sells a Needle Valve:
http://aqmagic.com/store/product_info.php?pName=needle-valve&cName=co2-equipment-valve and they show a chrome plated Needle Valve similar too this one on there Ebay site also.
Has anyone try doing this, right now i have everything inline , does anyone know where i can get the needle valve that JBL or Milwaukee uses on there system

The one you posted looks pretty similar to the milwaukee needle valve. If you're looking for the bubble counter, here is a link to the JBJ ones, which i've added to a milwaukee regulator before.
IMO, I would avoid the milwaukee/JBJ needle valves like the plague. I have 3, and they are all miserable to use. Very hard to dial in, and sometimes prone to backing off.

I have no problem at all dialing in the needle valve on my JBJ reg purchased from http://www.co2-canisters.com/ . It works fine. I can get about 10bubbles per minute if I really want to, although I'm running about 1.5-2 bps. Easy for me...apparently not for others, just don't write it off completely.
