Your rebreather was a home made unit created by an earthy Canadian dive club
I suspect your unit was possibly owned by Jack Mc Kinney who departed Canada for
the US in 1960s

Jack became very involved in diving -- worked for SDM, wrote a book Dive to adventure , etc

I just don't log dives
This is a very interesting topic,the total setup to me is so convenient any idea of a general cost and how do you fill the oxygen tank I assume so medical supply?ive been following oxygendiver on Instagram and it seems like a great convenient way to get diving

I fill mine from my torch oxygen tank,
Or I have oxygen concentrator with a bottle filler, but that is not pure oxygen and need flushing the loop occasionally,
