I believe this is different from the ones with a push button valve and no pressure regulation.

hardware store. i don't know where you live, but i've found psi guages in osh, home depot, and ACE.
Ok it sounds like I already have what I need, thanks cxwq. I would also like to know the cheapest place online to buy a psi measuring type thing I could attach to pvc just like a tire valve?

I also had the good fortune to find another small, dial-type gauge (redline 100 psi) off of a salvaged small boiler unit here on the property. Ahh, the joys of facility access. I'm going to try this one out on the next homemade (tripod mounted noodle launcher), once it's accuracy is verified.
There was once a CO2 inflator with lever regulation called the Superflate; I've noticed it's not available anywhere (at least at Performance Bike and at Bike Nashbar), but the unit that cx suggested is as close to regulated gas as you can get. The ones that just unload all the CO2 into the tire sometimes take it all the way to bursting (happened to me once, never used CO2 again).
Hey, if you're desperate, you can always use a car/ truck tire gauge (get one at least 120 psi) and use that to check pressure--I am going to use that with my pump up homemades (currently I'm spoiled by a battery-powered inflator that has it's own built-in gauge.)
