    Looking for the 150psi static regulator.

    I did a search of some old posts, and the website for the balloon place everyone recommended isn't working.

    Any more places to get one. The local welding supply place seems to be having trouble finding one.

    Where did you get your tank? Did you do much shopping around for deals?

    I can get a 20lbs tank from the local welding shop for $134 which includes first fill.

    There's an outfit on e-bay that sells 20lb tanks for $89, but with shipping and then filling it comes out to the same. And I would rather support local business.

    Did just find a regulator from Outback Air for $55 includes the quick disconnect for air hose.

    I just finished making mine and I used a 10lb tank with a co2 regulator from the welding shop but I wanted a adjustible one so that I can turn down the psi to use with my welder and it was 60 bucks.

    So, maybe if I have patience with the welding shop they'll come up with something good then.
