Get the biggest tank you can handle easily because it costs nearly as much to fill a small tank as a big one which means that the bigger the tank the lower the cost of the gas per cubic foot, a lot lower!

tank

I only mentioned it because you said you like them for their portability.

I think you must have confused me with some other varmint since I never mentioned tanks.

I have never liked those little tanks and even a size or two bigger would still be portable. I must admit however that they did come in quite handy when I had to tote my little portable welder a long way back at the mine site.

Confused?

Sorry, I'm so confused...

BUT !!! I just got back with the Miller 140, 3 spools of wire and a small gas bottle for $450.00, has about 1 hour on it.

Also got a Speedglas 9000X helmet with curtains and air flow for $100.00

On my second stop in Reno I picked up a adjustable windshield sun visor ($200.00) from a 47 Chevy for my 50 Stude pickup... its been a good day.

i dont like the voices i hear in your head...

They gotta be certified to fill them, so I don't think theres an issue there. if anything happened the manufacture and HF would be directly responsible

Oldred's stating, the little bottles are almost as expensive to fill as the larger bottles, so it only makes sense to buy the biggest bottle you can handle because the cost per cubic foot will be less.. if you got a small bottle now ( 10 CF? ) look into an upgrade to a 20 CF or bigger bottle on your next fillup

that may be true but its still not something I would by from HF. I would much rather support the LWS's.
