I had Dan at VSS rebuild my DA Aquamaster and my DA "NAVY" approved. I was very pleased with his service. He finished up the DA aquamaster in short order and its now a sweet breather. The "Navy" approved needed a part he didn't have but he combed the country until he found it. This reg also functions great. I would wholeheartedly recommend his service and I know I will be using him again.
JFYI, there are essentially two shops that rebuild double hose regulators in the USA. These are VSS (vintagescubasupply.com) and VDH (vintagedoublehose.com). Both are excellent with a loyal following. There are also a number of privateers who are known to occassionaly rebuild and or sell rebuilt double hose regulators, one colorful character in particular comes to mind and he does know what he is doing and been doing it awhile and is quite good with the old Broxtons etc. Quite a few of us including me rebuild our own equipment using parts mostly sourced from our own stocks and supplemented by materials from VSS and VDH. I don't rebuild regulators for other people however. Both sites also include downloads and manuals and all sorts of good stuff to look at. You should visit both. And, yes, Dan is an A-OK gentleman.
Junk the plastic stuff, the future is chromed brass and double hoses. N
" Q: Where can I get parts for older Double Hose Regulators?
Aqua Lung no longer has parts for the older double hose regulators. There are a few places that specialize in vintage SCUBA equipment and repairs. Try visiting Vintage Scuba Supply.
talk about rare .... I have never seen one of the 24ct. GOLD Royal Aqua-Masters made sometimes in the 60's .... came in a hand made walnut case and a certificate signed by Jacques Cousteau from U.S. Divers ...... one sold on Ebay last year for $10,000 (only 250 were made I believe) .....
