    Hi Peter,

    that looks like the regulator i recieved this morning. Is it the type your ment to screw to hand tightness? i tightened it up a little more with a stilsons.
    Do you have a needle valve? You will need one to control the flow of co2 to your glass diffuser. The regulator is not precise enought to do this and will end up destroying NRV's and diffusers.

    Its great your going Pressurised C02. nice one

    That regulator came from hong kong

    Seems ok like, I just need to get the right amount of pressure on the FE handle, as I experienced before, too much makes things go bang!

    Wen ya's say a needle valve do you mean a little knob kinda thing you turn like a tap or volume dial to increase or decrease whatever it is? If so then yeah it's got 1 of those
