Needle Valve

I have been looking around on eBay for awhile for a needle valve. My gas line pipe is 3/8" in diameter and I have found a needle valve that can fit the pipe but I have read many comments on this sites on which valves can work and which ones cannot. So I ask will this one work? http://www.ebay.com/it...

ALCATEL DIFFUSION PUMP

I have found this diffusion pump that looks better than the VMF-11 pump does it look? And do I need that cold trap?

eBay Diffusion Pump

I have found this Diffusion Pump VMF-11 on eBay. The pump seems to be in good condition and runs on 135 watts. My question is would this be good for a fusor? and if it is where do I attach the power cord?
