well, i was at a garage sale that they do here where i live (not allowed in front of houses, just 1 every six months at the club house)
so im sitting there with my mom and my brothers GF (she's selling pug puppies) and i hear air being bled from a tank...
i look around, and see a blue cylinder... walk over, talk to the guy... "how much you want?" he answers "a buck" :smiley20:
add the VIP (18bux) and i got a hp steel 100 for less than 20 bux!
dropped it off at the LDS today, and he said it looks like it's been taken care of... and has air in it, so odds are on my side that the tank is good!! sweet deal.

Larry... what is the kit to convert a mares V16 to DIN cost?

Good find. The kit should be about $50 as I recall (my wife and I have the kits on our regs) and is easy to put on. Think it took about 10-15 minutes to do both of our regs. She uses the V16, and I use the MR22. Both an easy swap. I'm kind of jealous of your find on that tank...good deal.

What a find. Reminds me of a DB of mine that does surveying. They did some work for a farmer and they got talking about diving. The farmer had 2 AL80's in his barn that he gave to him. Hydroed and all was well.

Yeah, the cheapest deal I have been able to find on tanks around here is $140 for a used AL 80.

Thought I did well buying a pair of 6 month old steel hp 100's.
Paid $300 for the pair.
My instructor missed them by 5 minutes.
Was she ever pissed.
Funny thing she's been short tempered with me since.

he knew how much it was worth, when we talked to him, he mentioned that he just does not dive anymore, and was just trying to get rid of it.

in 2 months when the diving season ends I will have 2 120 steel tanks for sale. There are 5 years old. 6 months ago had the hydro / viz done with o2 cleaned . Tanks were tumbled to remove rust.

I want to buy shorter and fatter 119s.

What offers, I am in N.Y. i got no idea how to ship these things.

you have to post that in the BST forum. and please, dont hijack other peoples threads.

if you want to sell them to me for 20 bux each, you got a deal tho.

Where in NY, it's kinda a big state. I'm in Rochester, and I may be interested.

Great deal on the tank, but the LDS is screwing you on the cost of the Visual. $18 bucks? **OUCH**

i know... thats what they charge... and im not willing to drive 30-40 minutes for another shop over the few bux... isnt it usually 10 bux for VIP?
