pcscuba, I used the same plans sent to you by nickjb on Scuba Source dated 2-21-2003. The plans themselves were by Roger Lacasse.

pcscuba, I'm sorry that date was 5-21-2003. I'm definately going to give the canister light a shot. Thanks for the link. I spent a couple of years in Panama City back in the early 80's. I rented a cottage at Pirates Cove. Some great fishing and diving if you keep one eye on the gators. Had some buddies that ran a charter out of Desten called the Vantage. Man those were the good old days. Good Luck to ya.

pcscuba, surfing the net on a quest for information. Usually when I find some good info I save it for later use. When you asked where I got the plans I took a look at my file and low and behold you were there too. What a coincidense right.

I was wandering that same thing.Anyway, back on the topic. Tanker do you have some way of bending the plate yourself or did you take it to a machine shop?

pcscuba I have a friend who owns a shop. He was kind enough to let me use his break and punch.

That's the only problem with Panama City there is only one person in town with a break large enough to bend 1/8" stainless. This wouldn't be so bad if I knew him but I don't so he wants to charge me $55.00 just to bend the plate. That doesn't include anything like punching the holes or webbing slots. I guess I'll have to keep looking for someone else. [Frown]
