    Ron and Valerie Taylor used these regulators, In Australia ,I remember the US divers they used later on.
    Can can anyone ID this one? Guess 1972-73, not sure.

    Possibly a Sea Bee? I am not familiar with the regulator, but it looks like a match.

    Looks like you are right. I have the second stage. Wish I had the first.

    If it's a Sea Bee it was invented by Jim Ager and Lionel Martin, pioneers of Australian diving , not forgetting Ted Eldred
    the inventor of the world’s first, commercially successful, single-hose regulator, the PORPOISE, who they knew well.

    You have another, what vault did you drag that from? The amount of gear you have astounds me. I going to have to visit this "lair" of all things scuba, you don't live too far away.:thumb:
