I bought this to use on my Kobalt(Lowes) 60 gallon compressor. I had one of their(Kobalt)small 125psi regulators with the plastic knob to adjust air pressure and it leaked air and didn't catch any moisture. And the plastic turn-to-lock knob broke. It cost almost as much as this new one does. This one is a heavy duty unit. No air leaks, cleans the air and makes my plasma cutter cuts better. The only issue I had was finding 1/2" NPT fittings for it. Most places around here only have 3/8" NPT. So you may want to look for those here on Amazon while you're at it. The metal tee handle to adjust the pressure works great and doesn't leak any air.
