    Faber Dumpy 3L cylinders...

    Anyone know the length (and perhaps diameter) of these cylinders. I'm toying with the idea of butt-mounting one on the Yellow Box for suit inflation, and spidge bagging purposes - and I want to know if it's about the right length to fit width-wise underneath. (would also have the bonus of making the unit sit a little higher for kitting up when I've built a nice stainless cage for it...)

    Anyone tried this on a YBOD? Or suggest the perfect size?

    Cheers..

    I'll get back to you with exact sizes
    but length is aboutwhat 4-6 inches less than the height of a YBOD

    probably about the same as the width of the YBOD

    and 5 inches diameter

    will get back to you later

    i dont remember the exact size of it, but it is shorter and thicker than a normal 3L. And i dont think its a good choise for the YBOD, i am not sure you will even get the cover on.
    Why would you like to have dumpy on a YBOD? I have standard size 3L on my KISS, jus like the Inspiration, but i am thinking of adding dumpy's to my KISS, just because they do stick out. They are to long.

    kind regards

    I think Padowons temrinology might have been confusing - butt mount = to mount it underneath the bottom of the unit in a horizontal postion resting against your bum.

    Eg not replace the standard cylinders but have an additional one!

    Got some input from someone that they might be Heiser cylinders, not Fabers. length 395mm apparently - I reckon that'd fit sweetly under my ass!!!

    3L x 200bar = 600L which'll fill up my 60kg liftbag down to 90m - nice!

    Since they're Heisers.... I'll measure mine!!

    395mm length (minus valve)
    14 1/2" circumference (including bits of rust from the bessel)
