    Gents, for those of you interested in BOB rebreathers. Project and pool dives are going well, all the info and pictures can be found at the below site.

    Interesting build Tom. are you running the 'breather on one side & the cylinders on the other or does everything mount to the unit?

    Yes mate, standard side mount config. I have been clipping an O2 bottle of my armadillo on the same side as the breather. Attaching cyl to it makes it too hard to trim in the water, not great for restrictions either.

    Great effort so far, am looking forward to seeing how it progresses. I have thought about doing it myself but to be honest found it too daunting a project, had no idea where to begin.

    Look it is a very daunting prospect pulling apart a 7k rebreather and turning it into something else. This is not a project I have rushed into.

    The only things that have or will be changed is a section of the loop as you have seen and the HP and LP plumbing.

    From what I've seen it looks like you've taken a very sensible and well thought out approach. I am very curious to see how it will breath. Best of luck and keep us posted!
