    Are there any images of that breathing set? Does it still exist?

    Some were in one of the magazines, from before they put everything on the web. I don't know how to find them. Bob's web site got taken down after trading standards took offence to all the non ce bits on it.

    His web site was http://www.rebreather.org.uk/ . Now defunct. You may be able to get some of the content from a wayback archive.

    Wing Based CCR
    GolemGear

    and the best of them
    the Dry Suit based CCR

    Here is the Home page for the old site

    Remember, do not try this at home, I was already tried, by highly skilled professionals
    Sorry, could not resiste... Suit based idea is much older than that! See this early FARTOX CCR design...

    Herewith another image of my 2-bag stabjacket-to-rebreather CGI Poser model. The men's compressed-air-powered underwater guns show where the inflation cylinders of the original stabjackets ended up in a waterfront workshop. Looks like that the area's port authority have something to hide underwater.
