Default Will this regulator work?

I purchased this regulator off ebay today, New Single Gauge CO2 Regulator w/ Valve - Measures PSI - eBay (item 360089434926 end time Sep-23-08 09:42:32 PDT)

I should have asked here first but, I just wanted it for my spare co2 tank to pressurize a keg while they wait to go into my keezer. More or less just used to seal the lid with 30 psi.

Will this regulator be fine for this????

Looks like it should work fine.

Yes it will work.
Bad thing about it is there is no gauge that shows how much CO2 is left in cylinder.

Thanks!!!

The gauge that shows how much pressure is left is no concern. My plans are, not have to touch my regulators in my keezer and keep them set a 12 psi . The other (cheaper) regulator will only be used for sealing kegs off my spare co2 tank.

I am thinking that the keezer would run out of c02 before the spare tank that I am going to use just to seal. This way I would still have some co2 on back up. (I have 3 kegs running off a 5lb tank)

Can't stand the thought of running out of co2 on a Saturday night

I saw This One at Harbor Freight. I'd bet a nickle that it will fit up to a CO2 because a log of people use that for MIG.

I am going to get one of those portable CO2 injectors that use the little cartridges for portable use, and as an emergency backup if I run out in the big tank.

Is it just me or does that regulator look like it could be used for CO2 or Nitrogen?

Probably so, as it is used for Argon.
They also have another one for about $34 that appears similar.
