Thanks Simon, those look good. Were '50s/early '60s vintage bands also made of stainless, or were they just galvanized steel? Hopefully these will pass hydro, and I want them to be as period correct as possible.
Many of the original bands were galvanized, and later ones were coated with some black "plastic". When we started making reproduction bands (original galvanized are VERY rare), stainless was the easiest and least expensive way to go. Peanut King made a bunch, but each batch become more and more expensive. When I started making them, about 5 years after Peanut King ceased, I thought about the galvanized approach. Using a pre-galvanized sheet to cut them from is not the issue, but re-galvanizing the bands to cover the slots and edges was. My bands are nice, look great and work perfectly for 6.9" diameter tanks. And, I believe, very affordable. I have "non-vintage" divers use them for tech staging. If you find a set of original galvanized double bands, you will be very fortunate.
