Anyone have any sources or ideas? Someone has to manufacture these!

I was also thinking of fabricating my own if need be, but that is only if I desperately have to

Thanks in advance
Sort of depends upon your flow requirements and pressure supply ranges - what are you using it for, what supply presure? I use two and three way parker valves that are diaphram/air actuated with 20-30 PSI actuation pressure requirement. They weight <100g
