FS, Emergency O2 kit.

I am selling my Soft Pak Emergency O2 kit. It is full and is 15 cu ft. I think this is the same size as a DANN D bottle. Comes with Soft Pak carry case, Pocket Mask and Nasal Cannula. Never used. $200.00.

2/2 & 2/3

Is there anyone going to be diving either Thursday or Friday AM. My wife has to be up there for a work class and I am coming along but not diving. Just want to hang with some dive buddies. We are staying near Sea-Tac. Let me know.

Re: Gas-powered Aquascooter. Wait, what?

I have never heard of them. Now if they could add a battery pack with charging and be good to depth that would be a winner.

Re: tank valve adapter

I wish I had a way to braze. I have an old epoxy lined lp72 which I cannot tumble the liner out of completely. It would be perfect. Thanks for the step by step tho!

Re: tank valve adapter

It was pretty easy. First I drilled two 13/16" holes for the in and out ports. I wanted the tank to act as a water seperator so the in port is at the bottom and the out port is at the top. I had a real old drain valve that I installed after brazing the bottom adaptor. I used a 3/4" to 3/8&...

Re: tank valve adapter

I liked Dusty's idea so much went with it. Had everything I needed in the plumbing repair box. I found a couple of old steel tank bands to mount it to the wall. I now have over 60% more tanked air and with the gas valve I can disonnect the compressor to use elsewhere and still have air in the garage.

I probably agree with you Dave but I have everything in my spare plumbing box to do this. I love making things out of things that are no longer usable. I have already sold two Garden Gongs made out of old scuba tanks and wanted to try something else. There also happens to be a perfect space above my...

Re: tank valve adapter

I found out that the tank has the 7/8" straight thread. Why not go to a dive shop and get one of the valves they have laying around, cut it off and tap it for 1/2" NPT? I thought of that in fact I have the din valve that was on the tank. I just had a problem destoying a good din valve. If ...

Re: tank valve adapter

I am not sure it they will work. I have thought of getting a tank shipping plug and then drilling/tapping it for a pipe but most are plastic now. The tank will only hold 150 lbs pressure though. I guess I just need to drag the tank around to plumbing places till I find the right adapter.

Hey everyone. I have a condemned hp 100 that I want to make into a holding tank for my compressor. I have a large Emglo contractors compressor I use for construction. When not in use I have it hooked up to my air lines in my garage. My problem is finding a male adapter for the neck so I can put a wa...

Saturday was a very sad day in the Aquanautchuck household. Scuba Kat moved to a new home in California. She moved in with a very loving "SCUBA DIVING COUPLE" in Modesto. They drove all the way up to pick her up and have told me I can come down and visit her any time I want to go diving. S...

Re: Torpedo Reef

Of all my dives on the Canal, Pulali Pt is my favorite. I always anchored under the Torpedo test shack and kick off the edge into the unknown. Many great dives there.

Re: Craigslist deals

That is what I thought. I made a rope/PVC ladder for my Zodiac but have never had to use it. Heck, if you can get out of a swimming pool without a ladder you can get into a inflatable.

New priorities. Looking at houses right now and probably not going to be able to get a place with a 3 car garage. I do not want to store it outside. I have sure had some great dives off this boat.

Sad day. I have decided to sell my Bombard/Zodiac dive boat. I purchased this boat new in 2001 from Inflatable Boat Works here in Portland Oregon. I have garaged this boat from day one, hull is treated several times a year and it is in great condition ready to dive. Bombard C-5 Commando, length 15’ ...
