Found a used Oxy Actylene setup with big tanks and cart - what's it worth?

Just like the title says. I found a shop going out of business and they have the big tall tanks with a cart, torch, hoses, etc.

Sorry, no pics.

How much should I offer?

I bought some tanks like that once and it turned out that I could not get them re-filled because I did not legally own them. It turned out that they belonged to a welding supply company and they were lease tanks. I leased some for awhile but it got too expensive for me no more that I use them. I purchased my own tanks from a welding supply and now I just swap tanks with them and pay for the contents. You can purchase a good brand new set of regulators , guages, torch,tips, and hose for around $150-$200.

The gauge, hose and head set is the only thing that may be usable, just a Henry stated, the tanks may not be refillable, I would check before you offer anything. I have a set of Airco tanks that I can't give away, or get refilled without driving over an hour away.

I also have a set of tanks that I can't give away..............years ago, I bought a small set of tanks. One time the dealer let me trade them for a larger set, he didn't care. Then they lost the contract with the supplier. I went to the supplier, and they said because I have the larger tanks, without a contract, they won't fill them and they want the tanks back. I still have the tanks. I will send them to the dump first. I ended up buying another small set.

If you buy it make sure none of the valves leak, this can end your life, and waste a lot of money. I lost a good friend years ago from a used outfit.

If you do buy a used one...go buy some brand new flashback valves and put on it. Those really should be replaced every year. A lot of folks don't even use them, but they are very important. Safety is a must!
