The PDF is nicely done and I hope you have time to do more of them. As time passes and even fewer actual examples of the gear are around detailed and accurate information are the second best thing. Thanks for what you do DRW and I appreciate you posting it here.

Thanks, Bryan, for the positive response. I mentioned having created similar PDFs for Featherwate and Shark Brand and here are the respective URLs:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw7z_4bLjOOERkJlMG11UllQNWc/view
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw7z_4bLjOOEU0dab3JGWWRST28/view
The three PDFs are in a folder named "Reconstructions" with the web address https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw7z_4bLjOOEQWR2eGZnVGNvZDg, so you can keep a lookout for further contributions.

Feel free as well to explore what else I have in the way of files on my Underwater Swimming Google Drive, which has the URL https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw7z_4bLjOOEeDV1WkFiN1E2aWs. There are further folders with diving catalogues, guides and magazines, mostly scans of items I have a print copy of.

David, if you would consider it?.....I can make a folder on the VDH Manuals and Catalogs cloud server for your information and I can update it as you get more information to share.

This is on the back of "The How-To Book of Skin and Scuba Diving," by John E. Crayford, published 1964. It was my first book about diving.
