I found this little sucker at Harbor Freight and was wondering if anyone else had considered using it as a secondary regulator? I picked one up and am going to give it a try. It is a diaphragm type regulator, so I'm thinking it should work in theory.

If anyone else has tried one of these out, let me know! If not, I'll report back once my 4way distributor shows up next week from Midwest Supplies and I reconfigure my keggerator.

I asked about this awhile ago. The response I got was that these regulators were very poorly made and adjusting to a specific pressure was difficult.
