Scuba Diving Gear Archives

what is this strange scuba diving thing?

my great grandpa has this strange old fasioned thing that i think was used as gear for scuba diving about 100 years or so ago. do you have any idea what this may be
here is a video
just copy and paste the link

I don’t recognise it at all.

Are you sure it’s actually a piece of scuba gear, and not something your great-grandad recovered from a shipwreck, such as a cover for a ship’s compass, or a running light?

You might have better luck posting this question on a dedicated scuba board, especially one devoted to vintage gear and/or shipwrecks. You can find such boards at e.g.

And what about:

– What was your best dive ever?
– What is your favorite dive destination?
– What was your worst dive gear purchase?
– What dive computer would you recommend?
– Did you ever dive in cold water?
– What was the first dive purchase you did?
– Where did you get certified?
– Why do you like diving?
– How often do you dive?
– Do you like muck diving?

Maybe not 20, but with the previous answer combined you probably have enough 😉
