    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    Maybe later, too busy to chase them now. I do have, on an old phone,(not sure where that is right now) pics of an excavator buried up to the cab, and the backhoe sent to rescue it buried up to the frame. All the irrigation in this area is via surface ditches and my neighbor modified a ditch...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    This is rich coming from a guy who has never missed a chance to repeat the lie that we failed to test your wing. You've made it a near 2nd career to repeat your (totally one sided and unverified) "horror story" about DSS every chance you get. Shameless, totally shameless. Tobin

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    It has been our long standing policy to execute repairs promptly and at nominal cost, and that is exactly what we have done for many years. We are not currently able to do so. I sorry this is such a complex concept for you to grasp. I'll also add that I have absolutely no obligation to...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    Do a search. I've answered this dozens and dozens of times. I know it's a difficult concept for some, but at the risk of repetition *I'M MOVING* *~200,000 lbs of Equipment* *and my home* *~450 Miles* There are just a few things higher on my list than again having to satisfy the...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    Some are (Torus) some are not (LCD) As a practical matter nearly all wings, regardless of being zippered or sewn shut end up being returned for repair. The vast majority of divers lack the tools and specific knowledge of how a wing is assembled to be able to execute a repair, and most dive...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    Victim? Really? Let's examine this ridiculous claim. The er, ah, "Victim" purchased his gear over a year ago (when I expected the move to be much smoother) Said "Victim" now needs post warranty service work. (Newsflash, I have zero "obligation" to perform this work, now or ever) Said...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    Er, ah, gotta love your step by step repair guide for a product you don't own and know nothing about. Suffice to say it requires a very high level of experience and skill to install and sew shut a Torus Wing. We even occasionally damage a bladder doing it. One reason we *always* tested every...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    Most of what you posted is opinion and not fact. It reveals that you never quite understood our system, and it's benefits. Having said that I simply cannot devote much time to correcting your nonsense on a forum that has long ago ceased to be very meaningful. There are some great folks here...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    Humm, that's going to be a big surprise to the ~100 customers who had their Torus wings repaired. Looks like you have no idea what you are talking about, but this is of course ScubaBoard........ Tobin

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    "Moral obligation" Please. Do be careful climbing off your high horse. Are you suggesting that if somebody *EVER* offers goods for sale they have incurred a limitless obligation to offer parts and repairs on a near instant basis? Can you direct me to the ethics depart for ZipDrives? I...

    DSS (Deep Sea Supply)---Warning

    I highly suggest you look elsewhere for dive gear too. I have zero doubt that I'm unworthy of your business. I've been absolutely honest about our current resources, yet some still think if they call or email me when my equipment and supplies are 1) Disconnected, 2) Packed, 3) in Transit...

    FAKE NEWS!!--PADI to be sold once again

    Brian, I'd suggest it shows that Padi was under pricing their goods and services by quite a lot. The PE guys no doubt knew that when they bought the company. I suspect the contraction of the scuba industry will reduce competition for PADI and increase their pricing power. Typical of...

    Charger for custom Li-Ion battery packs

    This one: 109D Lithium Poly Charger The downside is the input is 12 vdc so home use requires a power supply. This no big deal if you know which end of a soldering gets hot. The upside is the input is 12vdc which makes charging in the field a snap. Best, most accurate means to fully charge a...

    Halcyon Eclipse wing shell repair

    IMO that shell is not repairable. The material shows a lot of fraying, and that typically means the antifraying coating on the inside of the shell has failed. Sew it up and it will fail again, and again and again. You need a new shell, the bladder and fittings hoses can be reused if they...

    How to beat DandyDon

    Sand filled rubber hose, scuba involves lots of both. :) Tobin

    3/8 UNF hose fitting reusable

    Omni Swivel makes and sells these. They work great. Best if you have a vise and some rubber lube (soapy water works ok) to aide in assembly. Not cheap, but they do work well. I keep a set in my save a dive kit. Tobin

    VDH BP/W package review

    Nonsense. Get somebody to put some water on that hair fire you have raging. I said nothing about your specific vendor, I did detail what I have experienced at other Cut and Sew shops. BTW "Cut and sew" is what these shops routinely call themselves. Google "Cut and Sew" you will get 1000's...

    VDH BP/W package review

    Might not for you, and is less likely to make a difference in the tropical diving app small wings are aimed at, but.... the capacity concerns raised by an actual customer were not for the "18" but for the "35". Would you want to go diving in a 30+ lbs buoyant drysuit in cold water with a wing...
