    I'm building my own mixing whip and I'm thinking there has to be a cheaper DIN/bleeder $39 assembly and flow control $39 assembly than I've found so far. Anyone have a good supplier? The one I'm bulding is modular using quick connects so it can be used with my booster and inert gasses as well as oxygen.

    I've only found them for $40 a pop as well and I'm told the price is going up. If you are a reseller for Dive Rite or Global, you can get them at dealer cost. I don't know who else makes them.

    $39 is a steal. Must be the "jolly Roger" special.

    The dwyer is supposed to be better, not sure how much better, but it costs $50 more.

    It's sad, bought the compressor and Haskel before I even started worrying about the whip.... I'm just silly.

    When I built mine, there was on-going debate on the accuracy about Mcmater digital one. But, the price was very attractive, $99. They jacked up the price within 16 month though.

    So, if money isn't the issue, I recommend going with dwyer one.

    BTW, will you come to BS on April 21th..?
