The Luck of the Auction

Tue Sep 21, 2021 8:00 pm

Well, I am not really active these days, being in Idaho instead of Hawaii. I still look for missing regulators I needed for my collection. I bought an unseen bag of dive stuff, and got some stuff. Looks to be a Navy USD regulator, with the No hookah nub. No name plate, but ok. Also a Camilus NAVY MK 2 knife.

Wow, what a terrific score! It looks like you got an original Non-Magnetic regulator and KABAR knife with metal sheath. Both are very rare and valuable. Congratulations... That's a terrific acquisition!

Thanks Surflung. I just posted some better photos in general discussion. My question was do I? Just replace parts for display? Rebuild for use? Or Have it professionally restored. It was a grail regulator for me.

Leave the patina......You know perfectly well how to service it. If you are missing a non mag part internally (many of them are) let me know via email and I'll see if I have one.
Doing it right should include some common sense, not just blindly following specs and instructions. .Gary D, AWAP on SB
