Default Cheap inline CO2 pressure regulators?

I have a 4 way manifold feeding my kegs, but I'd like to be able to set kegs at different pressures. I know I can get individual regulators and gauges for each line, but I'd much rather find something (cheap) I can put inline and tweak it with one gauge --- and then take the gauge off (or use a gauge on a spunding valve on the keg).

Any such thing out there? I can find lots of regulators w/ gauges for ~$50.

there were some Harbor Freight regs that were about $15 each. I don't know if anyone ever used them though.

I happened to find my secondary regs at sci-plus for $6. They sold out soon after.

Browsing the McMaster-Carr catalog... a few items look plausible. Anyone familiar with these regulators? It'll probably cost more to get MFL/NPT adapters than to just get the real thing :/

6746K25 - Nonrelieving miniature Air regulator. 0 - 60 psi range, no gauge. $24
