  • Depth Cruiser

    Evening All. Would anyone with some experience using Kevin McLeod’s Depth Cruiser mind sharing their thoughts / opinions of it? Seems like a slick setup. How did you go about fabricating the pressure pick-up tube? I was considering mounting a 2.25” vertical length of 1/8” or 3/32” brass tube to the exterior forward bulkhead of my SD, then connecting it via 1/8” urethane tubing to a nipple that will penetrate an unused depression in the after bulkhead, and onto the DC inside.

    Bob, I don’t know if you’ll see this - but is there any chance I could buy a 3’ length of gray Clippard tubing from you? The manufacturer is tied up supporting ventilator production.

    Thanks guys. Stay healthy.

    No problem at all. I got your direct message. We'll get you hooked up.

    DC only needs access to the exterior of the cylinder. No need for extensions. Just a hole. A simple nipple made from brass tube is all you need.

      Oh really? Interesting.... I saw a picture of a SD that David had a depth cruiser installed on and that’s what I thought I saw. I’m very excited to get this hooked up and see how it does.

      Thank you for the help, Bob!
