“blackdiesel”You can build your own for about $60 or buy one for about $150 from Air Hog or Aintanksforless.  Check out these videos, they helped me a whole lot when I first started:

Using SCBA for air supply

The only down side to the home made fill station for SCBA tanks with the SCBA valve is that you waste a lot of air when you bleed down and disconnect from the system.  You might be able to mitigate this by using fittings with less internal volume.  Maybe shortening the pipe between the four way and the SCBA tank.  Maybe not using a four way by drilling and tapping a three way to install the bleed valve…..
