    cincinati area

    I'm in the Cincinnati area for about 3 months. Are there any places to dive in the area? I would be up for some ice diving but it will be another week or two before my gear makes it up here.

    I'm sure it would work. Find a local sign shop, they should be able to put some there. It would be the same ones used on banners so they might be SS or brass.

    76 & 71 LP72 threads

    Just wondering how hard it will be to find din valves for my old LP72's. I have a sidemount class lined up next month and would like them both to be din.
    Will the standard valves fit them?
