FS: Aerox Regulator, Cannula and Mask by George Haeh
Moving from an ASW-20 to a 27 with automatic hookups left me with a smaller oxygen cylinder and last year I ran out on a couple flights. Then a couple weeks ago I knocked my cylinder over breaking the flowmeter - $62 at W&W; so decided to bite the bullet and switch to Mountain High. The...
