I ordered pvc and brass fittings tuesday night from mcmaster and they just came! It only took 2 days for the stuff to ship and the shipping was only 4 dollars! I'm still waiting for items to ship that I ordered 2 weeks ago. If anyone hasn't ordered from there I highly recommend it.

Edit: theres a problem I ordered a 1/8" pressure gauge and a 1/8" tap and they aren't anywhere near the same size
Heres some pics

It looks to me like maybe the pressure gauge is 1/4"
