Default Cheap source for low pressure CO2 gauges?

I got me a 6-way manifold for my new kegerator I am just building to individually regulate the pressure per keg. I like to have a CO2 gauge on each outlet to monitor the CO2 level for each keg.
The cheapest one I found is this one.

Does anyone know any better sources? Since I want to connect is via these standard t-shape brass fittings I get at the local HW store, it needs to be right-hand thread.

fwiw, that's actually a pretty fair price - you can barely beat that on eBay.

What are you going to use for the six gas regulators to go with those gauges?

Cheers!

Not "why". "What". It takes more than just a gauge to regulate gas...

Cheers!

Thanks for pointing that out. Now I seem to understand. Looks like that I cannot use the shut off valves to regulate the CO2 individually. I assume I would need secondary regulators. In this case I just use the manifold as is.
