Before I got my oxy-acetylene torch going, a buddy gave me an oxy cylinder out of an ambulance. Worked well with the Oxy/Mapp gas set up I had. It didn't last all that long either, and I never had to fill it, because my kid started working for a welding gas supply company, and I get the gas filled real cheap, and he lends me tanks. I think you'd have to get the medical cylinders filled at a medical supply, and not sure what the cleaner oxygen would cost.

I might be wrong here (if I am, I'm sure oldred will school me....) , but I think it's one-in-the-same. Just as with the compressed oxygen for assisted respiration situations, there had better not be any particulates in the oxygen you weld/cut with either-- way too large of a chance of some debris plugging a tip.


In a while, Chet.

if the hookups are the same on medical oxygen tanks, a set of old medical regulators would work on a regular oxygen tank... medical regulators have a service life and old 1's out of service are easy to get

I'm pretty sure the regulator set up is different on the medical bottle. If any one wants to know for sure I can look at it when I get back to town. I've still got the bottle and reg.

i just bought a bernomatic oxy/mapp torch. ran out of oxy in the middle of a project. i too have a medical oxygen tank, it has a post on the top. it would be a great advantage to have a step down adapter from a bigger tank to the left handed disposable bottle male. that way you could still use the reg. if anyone knows how to do that, it would be greatly appreciated. if i find out i will post back.
