Default Recommend me a regulator

I had a free regulator given to me and it has 1/8" NPT inlet and outlet fittings and I think it is severely limiting my impact and other air tools. It may be that it is an old piece of junk, as it doesn't adjust just has a constant 120 psi, and it had a leak that went away. I am not sure about that. But anyways, I need a new regulator. Looking for suggestions on a good regulator at a good price. Not anything crazy, I am just a home garage mechanic. Thanks!

Go on ebay and so some searches. Wilkerson is one I like alot. Norgren is another. Of course there is Parker and several others I cannot think of right now. Spend some time going thru them. Some are over priced surplus disposal companies, others are real good deals. Get one with or 3/8 pipe threads, accept up to 150 psi input and capable of regulating from about 50 to 150 psi.

I like the Kolbalt ones from Lowes. IIRC like 20 for 1/4" and 30 for 3/8".
