    Aloha James79. I'm in the process of rebuilding my Conshelf VI, but the tee is cracking around the screws. Would it be possible to buy a 3D tee from you? Thanks.

    I want to express my sincere gratitude to James79 for making and sending me new 3D exhaust tees for my Conshelf VI. They are well crafted and fit perfectly. One of the tee’s will be used on an early Calypso J I’m currently working on. This Calypso has the small 23mm exhaust valve. Pictures will be forthcoming soon. Thanks James

    Hey James, have you seen a Conshelf 4 or do you think this is a misprint in their catalogue?

    U.S. Divers introduces the Conshelf IV regulator based on the balanced first stage design of the 2-hose Royal Master. This model is the foundation for all Aqua Lung regulators moving forward.

    Everything I've seen points to it being a typo... A while back I dug through the catalogs on VDH, and if I remember right the 65 catalog shows the VI. And that one paragraph you quoted is the only official mention of a "Conshelf IV" I've been able to find.

    Respectfully,

    James
