Try looking outside the glass box. Start calling home brew beer stores
for a regulator. Sure you need to assemble it yourself but it's
cheaper. A needle valve for £30? You are out of your mind. Go to
www.clippard.com and find your local distributor. Should be under £10.
Try calling around on a cylinder. Find a place that services fire
extinguishers. I know several people in the UK that have assembled CO2
systems for around £80.
