    Thumbs up Frame For Kiss And Meg!

    Hi every one just after Christmas i will be going into production with my new
    Frame that will fit the KISS and MEG, but would like to gauge if it's worth my wile with all the outlay(would any one want one!)
    it's made from Aluminium to keep the weight down but could be from 316ss
    it bolts straight to the kiss and meg and raises the unit up off the ground so you don't have to stoop to put the unit on and has a large handle to help pick the units up, there is room under-neath to slow another tank or what ever you like really but the idea was for suit inflation
    in the pictures the frame is made from 3 components but in production it will be made from one piece of material with no welds
    it will be made from a sheet of material that will be cut by a water jet even the handle and then folded and finished
    the finished version will have D-rings cut in to it plate at the bottom of the spine to attach either reels to or clip stages to.
    i will place slots so you can add a cam-band to hold a tank, but i wont drill mounting holes for a quick release pony bracket as there are just to many types so if i cut holes for one type it would be wrong for another! so i'll leave that bit to you,
    what do people think?

    kindest regards john routley

    Re: Frame For Kiss And Meg!

    Looks lurvely! :D Now how is it going to attach to a KISS? Could you make the spine in such a way as to be a replacement for the ally spine (with threaded holes) already present in the CL housing?

    Sure does look good! What sort of $$$ (or pounds) are you looking at?

    cheers

    Andy

    hi Andy it bolts between the back plate and lung case
    basicly the same on the meg but between the scrubber and backplate
    there is two set of mounting holes one for kiss oneset for meg
    the price hopefully will come in at £110 + delivery
    may be a little less it all depends on how many i make.

    Talking Re: Frame For Kiss And Meg!

    Hi John,

    Thought that question would pop up soon...:p

    Yes I'm sure we can arrange a photo session so the guys can see what it looks in-situ.

    Give me a call to sort out when.

    Re: Frame For Kiss And Meg!

    I've just uploaded some pics of John's frame on my Meg to the gallery for people to see how it looks in-situ. http://www.rebreatherworld.com/gallery/img1433.html

    I'll be diving the stand on Thursday at Stoney with Narked@90 so will post feedback on it afterwards.
