    How to clean White RK3s!?

    Hey, everyone. I picked up a set of RK3s in white a while back, and well as you can see in the picture they are fairly rough. I just want to clean them up and get them looking as good as I can, because I understand they will never look "brand new" again. I've tried the following to clean them...

    Semi-DIY O2 and CO analyzer

    I'm convinced of the benefit of analyzing tanks for O2 percentage and presence of CO (carbon monoxide). I was a kickstarter supporter of Cootwo, and still think it was a great concept and form factor. I was unhappy with the lack (and tone) of support from Divenav in the past. On my last dive...

    Scubapro Go Sport Fin Strap

    I’m a little worried about the plastic fin strap retaining pin design. I figure there is a chance it can break, I will break it removing it, or in the event I lose it on the boat changing a strap out I’d be hosed. I’m considering my options since SP told me they don’t sell the pins separately...

    Old DiveRite Canister Light repair

    I have two old DiveRite dive lights. I purchased a new battery (PS-1229) and moved the wiring from the old battery to the new one. Testing both lights, one works, one does not. They are probably 20 years old, canister, halogen (I believe). For the one that is not working, anyone have any...

    Should I upgrade my G250 to the new 's-wing' poppet?

    Hello - sorry to bring up a relic (albeit a loveable relic, eh). Hoping people still are diving this wonderful 2nd stage and may provide some wisdom. I've used this quarantine (here in Manila) to finally teach myself to overhaul my MK11/G250 rigs. It was super easy. My question is related...

    Dang there are a lot of regulators out there today! It's been a while since I got new regulators, and it's time to build myself a new set of dive kit. As I started to work through the options, I evolved a set of criteria. Here's what I came up with: Self service. I want to be able to buy...

    Making LP Valve Seats for Second Stage

    I couldn't find this info doing a search but it must have been discussed already... What is a good material (rubber etc) to use to make second stage LP valve seats? I've tried inner tube rubber but it's too soft and makes for hard breathing, but it does seal well. Way back when all we had was...

    Class for maintaining/servicing own equipment

    Years ago, I took an all-day class on how to service my own Scubapro equipment. I don't remember it it was an "authorized" class or not. It has been so long ago, i have forgotten a lot of it. Are there any dive shops on the east coast to offer a weekend class for this type of thing? I can...
