    Thought I would share a way to get CO2 system for under $200.00. Everyone in this hobby is looking for better cheaper. I know that I have a lot more than I should into my beast.

    I went to a keg beer place and bought the regulator and a used 10# tank for abot $120.00. The mounting bracket came from a welding suply place for $20.00. The hose, quick connects, and air chuck from home depot for about $30.00.

    The regulator is a little larger than the one you get when you pay $430.00, but to save $200+ i'll deal with the size. My 72 blazer has plenty of space in the back.

    I was thinking about this 10lb tank. comes with regulator, tank, hose and mounting bracket plus free shipping for $280 or $250 with out the mounting bracket. but for $20 more you can get the 20lb tank with everthing.

    Thats not bad if you want to just get every thing at once, and I like how it has the 0-300 psi ADJUSTIBLE regulator, I wish I could have a adjustible one but the way I see it air tools are mad for air compressors, but it would be good to have, you could make one and save a little money but it just depends on what you want to do with it, I just use mine to air up tires then switch regulators and use it when I weld and thats about it, im am going to get a air compressor to run my air tools.
