    FS: 3No. 0.4L cylinders

    I have managed to acquire some small cylinders, 0.4L I think, based on comments below, they are empty and in fairly good nick.

    Anywhoo, does anyone want to make me an offer?

    I'm in plymouth, so collection only. I could post them, but would be expensive.

    Any questions just fire away.

    They are not 3l cylinders. They're old inflation cylinders and worth about their scrap value.

    They are suicide bottles fitted to the La Spirotechnique ABLJ and run out at about 0.4 lts
    and must be about 25-30 years old, got 2 just like them.

    They certainly look like ABLJ inflation cylinders, if do they're probably around 0.4 litres. It should tell you capacity on the shoulder of the cylinder - if it doesn't I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole as they will not be properly rated.

    No, just about every uncleared BSAC compressor room is littered with them.

    Amassing that modern divers don't know what they are or what they use to be used for, I must be old! My fenzy had a 0.6L and we did a Fenzy course when we taught how to breath from the Fenzy. That was before Direct feeds when they were fitted the "fenzy" started to be known as an "ABLJ" and buoyancy control was born. No alternative air then either so breathing from the bag was the only alternative.

    The scrappy it is then!

    The regulators that came in the box with them, I sold for a nice wedge, thought someone might collect these too.

    I have opened the valves and no air came out, so i presume that they are safe to dismantle?

    I'd try them on eBay first. There's always someone stupid enough to buy this stuff. Normal suicide bottles were going for 30 a few years ago.

    These things would be handy as backup O2 bottles for a CCR but the valves are old taper ones and I doubt you'd find a suitable one to replace those with.
