    Hi Fred
    It should fit if its 22mm,although you would need a decent needle valve, that's the key to getting it to run at 1 bubble a second and smoothly,some needle valves are very erratic in my opinion.

    Thanks for the reply. My Dad just said the same thing. Not sure how you would fit a needle valve to this unit though or any for that matter.
    I'd love another D&D regulator but they're around £85. Luckily I got mine for £60.
    Cheers.


    Edit: Oooo, found the extra fitting I think :D

    You will probably find the the threded outlet from the regulator can be removed (I think these are normally an opposite hand thread anyway) leaving a 1/8th bsp female thread which you can easily get fittings for.

    I think it's airline pneumatics that do loads of stuff online, including needle/ flow control valve which will fit the 1/8th bsp.

    Cheers,

    Tom
