I got a 1/2" (DN15) needle valve to control my cooling water from eBay (China) and it was fine. I actually use a 1/8" needle valve on my 2" LM reflux still. It is a Swagelok but they are expensive (scrounged it from some old lab equipment). You could try this http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1-4-915PSI-N ... SwUIhZZLn~

Nathan, as Peter rightly said, once u start to trawl Fleabay, you will be able to find absolutely everything you will ever need, all at realistic prices. BUT, factor into the equation, one month before you receive the stuff.
