Twin 45's back from Hydro and valves/manifold rebuilt.

Sun Feb 14, 2021 7:58 pm

I just finished overhauling my Sherwood valves/manifold and got my twin 45's back from hydro. Added a VDH backplate and now I am learning how to sew webbing with an awl. :)

Although this rig is by no means vintage, it is mid-70's ish and is my daily diver. In an attempt to please the vintage scuba gods I replaced the plastic knobs with metal Sportsways and US Divers knobs. Since the parts come from US Divers, Sportsways and Sherwood my wife says I should call it a "us-divers-sport-wood." I'm not entirely clear what she meant by that. :)
