    Oh yeah... I forgot spring straps (and probably a bunch of other stuff).

    I haven't used it for still photos really, but having a positionable HID100 has been helpful for video.

    Tank rack that can hold 15 tanks. Goes in the back of my F-150 and is able to strap all tanks down.

    I made some foam cradles to keep tanks from banging around in the back of my truck.

    Got the foam from the trash can at work... it was used as packaging material. Stuff is about 2 inches thick, tough as nails.

    Cut the pieces out on my band saw, used Elmers ProBond glue to stick two pieces together.

    The LDS has these things... they're blue foam, and cost like $20/each

    I spent a half hour in the garage, and made two of them for less than $3.
    To those in the miltary who serve, past and present, to protect my freedom, I thank you. I've had a good life so far.

    Does spray-painting my name with a stencil on the sides of a Stanley Job Box count?

    Cut the cost of a rolling specialty dive box in 1/4.

    Mine are 13 and 18. Still not too useful.....

    Apply the dive rule: Don't hold your breath. You'll die!
