    Looking for PST Steel 80s

    Do you mean the stubby short HP 3500 PSI tanks that are 7-1/4" diameter with 7/8" neck threads?

    Great job Ken and Kyle and everyone who helped! Thanks, folks.

    It's great to see so many friends at the workshop. I did Andy's Radiolocation workshop; very cool stuff. Also Kirill's photography...

    Is the line through the restriction still holding and going straight through and down to the floor? Or did it pop it's tie off and get pulled back to the right? I don't see it in the picture.

    I had fun, and got in a dive, but then came down with a cold and had to head home soon after the workshop was over.
