Where does everyone get their oxygen and acetlyn tanks from? I'm looking at getting a set and so far I like the TSC one, mostly because they are open on weekends, open till 8 and they have stores all over the place.
Well, I'm guessing you don't have a lease and go to a place that will fill tanks that don't belong to them? I go to Flint Welding Supply. If you're in the Flint area, that's whom I would recommend.We bought a set of biiiig tanks and havn't had a problem with them getting filled. I guess were just lucky.
What do you do, search on certain screen names to find posts to try to make fun of?Please do not argue with Pavementpounder.
In fact, please pm him before making a post to make sure he approves of it.
No, I have been reading a lot of pirate lately. I figure I can search there and do some cut & pastes just like you :thumb:What do you do, search on certain screen names to find posts to try to make fun of?
Lord knows you have no other reason to be posting anything other than a newbie question in a tech forum....
PavementPounder;739022... A lot of places won't accept tanks that are not their own (TSC included)......[/QUOTE said:I thought you were saying this towards owning your own set.
We ran into an issue when trying to fill our welding tank at another place with the tank being from another welding supply.
Make sure you get a good set of valves and also a spark arrestor (SP? and i think thats what its called?) so you don't back feed into the tank and cause them to blow up.
I am. Everybody has their own policy. Some won't fill other shops, some will but not personal tanks, some people will do whatever.I thought you were saying this towards owning your own set.
x2I used to cut apart CJ's with small tanks. I didn't do it on a single fill, but I don't know why people blow through them so fast.
I know why, it is because alot of people don't know how to properly use a torch. I see people all the time with the torch screaming to cut some 1/4" plate and end up having to beat the shit apart because they welded everything back together as they were cutting.I used to cut apart CJ's with small tanks.
