Default Drs Foster Smith CO2 needle valve

Anyone know the manufacturer of the needle valve Drs. F & S sell? How does
it compare to the Clippard sold by others?

Do you think this Drs F & Smith needle valve

http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...=6&pCatId=4598

is the same valve as the top one shown here

http://www.specialtymfg.com/needle.htm

with the options of 1/8 " barbs for input and output?

No! The Specialty Manufacturing Standart valve looks like the one
DrsFosterSmith sells, but it is NOT the same thing.

The Specialty Manufacturing Standart valve needs only 2-1/2 turns to
go from fully open to fully closed position. It works, but it's not
precise at all. You are better off with the $5 Home Depot brass
needle valve.

The Specialty Manufacturing Mini Needle Valve is a bit better - about
5 turns, but still not very precise. Works fine though.

Specialty Manufacturing has a minimum order of $50.
But I think their standart and their mini check valves are a great
deal - cheap, metalic, no rubber to deteriorate. Compare to a
$30-something Dennerle plastic check valve from Marine Monsters or a
$.99 plastic/rubber one from your LFS.

The Fishvet.com guy sells a needle valve that looks like the Specialty
Manufacturing Standart valve, but has like 6-1/2 turns. That one is
good enough. The Fishvet guy does not take merchandise back as I
hear.

I find the Marine Monsters standart valve to be the best from the one
I've used myself. Marine Monsters may have not so good of a customer
service, but their merchandise is great.

If you look at the yellow block of text in the web site, you can see that
there is a 6.5 turns version available. Wonder if that is the same one as
Fish Vet??

Somewhere, another online fish store, I saw what appears to be the same
valve but said 4 turns of revolution.

In defense of Marine Monster (www.marine-monsters.com), My experience with
them from a customer service perspective has been good. Any problems or
issues they correct. The products they sell are good!

Drfoster and smith sell the nedlevalve from fishvet. Marine monsters
needlevalve is made by Clippard and is the same one I sell, Florida
driftwood sells...

Marine Monsters has been sold..Ed is no longer in the company. The
West coast company that now took over their WEB site is keeping the
WEB site for the time being, but may or may not have the stuff in
stock that is on their site...I bought out a lot of it myself... Hey
Nickolay, how you doing? Hoes that C02 set running? You did find it
right?

Robert

I've never talked to you about a CO2 set up. You are confusing me
with someone else.

How much you gonna charge for these Marine Monsters needle valves if
that company stops selling them?


I sell the Clippard M3 valve for $18. I'm not selling their metering
valve. the one thats like $60 or whatever...way over kill anyway.
Sorry, I got you confused with another Nickolay! I have all M3s C02
reactors, bubblecounters, and a few other stuff

So Robert -

Are you saying that the needle valve sold by Fish Vet and Drs. Foster &
Smith is the one made by

http://www.specialtymfg.com/needle.htm
(click on link then click on red "Information" button. Look at text in
yellow block)

But their 6-1/2 revolution option?
