    Title says it all. Preferably something plug and play and ready to go. Im looking for something better than my Milwaukee regulator. A set-up with Burkert solenoid, fabco/ideal/parker valves a plus. I'll consider nice post body kit as well. Thanks.

    Tom,
    What kind of needle valve do you have on them? Regulator ? Solenoid ?
    Thanks

    Mesa SS dual reg(Top of the line 815$ new retail), Burket SS solenoid, Swagelok Check Valve, SS parts, Swagelok or similar, Valves vary, parker for some, Ideal for another and then the nicer SS swageloks for others.
    I'll be selling a pair of the regs on my tanks at home, which are SS and some brass also, these will be about 50-40% less than the SS Mesa's which are similar in grade to the Swagelok SS dual stage regs.
    I use 3/16" SS barbed ends. Slow set pipe thread and teflon.

    I'm doing this to upgrade and also to have a few extra for clients, but also to learn more about the parts and builds myself, while offering some of the leftover parts and various items to make a few builds and pay for some of the cost.

    I'm thinking of doing this for the brass or chrome plated brass more often though.
    Something like a nice Brass dual stage chrome plated reg, all brass piping, Brass burket, Clippard brass check valve, brass barbed 3/16" end etc, with the best NV in the business: Ideal NV with the vernier handle: about 450-500$.

    SS will be in the 650 range at least.
