    Resorted and added to, from the list in the other Servicing Your Own Regs thread, attached is a list of (IMO) Essential, Desired and Luxury tools.
    For $240, you buy what I consider the essential set (granted - for both first and second stages)
    For $570 more, you can buy all the desirables, but that will accomodate multiple brands, and you might need less
    For $1850, you can have almost everything.

    Can you do this with a crescent wrench, a screwdriver, a pencil and a spoon? Yes.
    Will your reg last 30 years? No.
    Will it last the next dive? Ummm, opinions differ.

    Autocracy on smart phone, you know the really really drunk friend that thinks it is actually being helpful.

    Evidently SB thought you could either benefit from this thread or would have something to add to it. Welcome to the show!

    I posted this in another thread but it might be useful to include it here:
    Improvised Torque Wrench
    I make my own picks out of brazing rod making a loop and taping it to provide a handle.

    I recommend googling your specific regulator. There are plenty of videos on YouTube that will show you not only how to service particular regs, but the tools needed, as well. (For example, the tools required to service my Poseidon Odin's are different than the tools required to service my Scubapro Mk 10 Balanced Adjustible's/G250's.)

    I’m sure this is worth looking at further, but the ads for toilet paper replacement that kept showing up with the line “Stop wiping your butt” detracted a bit. I’ll check it out again later because, like I said, I’m sure it is worth looking into.

    Necessary... Work-mat, if you have a coffee table workbench. Nothing like working from the couch in front of the TV. :)
