    Hi guys, now im member of your vintage club, i got two KAJMAN regs, they made in POLAND, 1976, they where popular but now in my country is a shame to use them, (you must follow a main stream and be a plumber diver )
    but not for me :D, i thing any twin hose are great, but those have very affordable prize

    Nice, looks like they are in great shape. Get them serviced and dive them. Looks like you will need a J valve......did they make DIN J valves? I am not sure how you will keep up with your air pressure but I guess there was a way.
    If you service them, please take some photos of them dissambled, I have not see one of that type dissambled and I am always interested in how they work.

    its a din connection so they just work on 200 bar cylinders, in Poland and continental europe is hard to find a a-clamp

    that is p-22 2x8l 150 bar twinset, with manifold, and reserve valve. they where verry popular in 70's and 80's in Poland,

    here is link http://translate.google.pl/translat...pl&tl=en&u=http://www.nurkomania.pl/ao048.htm
    im might get few more off them if anybody collect twin hose regs my friend have few off them and they in working order

    I own a Kajman and it's a great reg. You can use it with a DIN valve or an adopter. Mine works great and I'm afraid to tear into it because I'd never be able to get parts for it. I really like the reg though. It's a really good breather.

    You might want to pick them up and resell them on e-bay or one of the boards. It might be a good opportunity to make a buck while at the same time making some unusual vintage gear available. I've got no idea what they're actually worth here in the states, but I suspect they'd easily sell for $200 or more, especially if you also had a line on spare parts. Can't say for sure though as new Russian double hose regulators seem to be fairly cheap. Russian regulators have nonstandard fittings though. Yours looks like a standard DIN fitting.

    in 80's divers in Poland use to call Russian regs ,,rusty death'', quality much better then the Russian one, shipping might be expensive :)

    I haven't used Russian dive gear yet, but my experience is that most things Russian are reliable, simple, reasonably well made but not really designed to be used by humans.
