Re: Needle Valves

Most of the vlaves I've used over the years have been Clippard's minimatics.

www.clippard.com

Shippping is 10-15$ but it cost the same to ship 1 as it does 20.
So I got 20.

Nu Pro are very good, they run about 38$ US.
The Clippard's are good enough for our purposes and run 11$ ea, hard to beat.

The NuPro are very nice and worh the extra $ for folks also. I've had no trouble with the clippard's though.

If you only have one or two tanks, have the $, go for the nicer ones.

Nu pro = Swaglock(something spelled like this, I got mine a long time ago)

Clippard will ship to the UK I believe or they have a vendor locally.

I would not use that large thing in the photo link.

Tom Barr

Having finally tried it, I agree, they are no good at all....

It's good to learn through experience, as long as it's not your own.

Re: Needle Valves

Dave Gomberg's Fabco's are very nice and for the small extra cost, are worth it.
6 for 100$= 16.66 ea vs 11.10 for the clippards.

Shiping is less with Dave but I pay nothing since he's local.

Next step up goes to the Nupro which are 38-39$ before shipping.

Get a few barbed-barbed ends on some to use right at each tank after you steo down, this makes dosing easier.
