Acetylene Oxygen Refilling for Torch

Hi all,

So I have smaller acetylene tank setup my old man uses for A/C work. I just snapped a bleeder valve on my Dodge. I need to heat the sucker up but I have run out of oxygen.

Called up Tractor Supply and they only swap the tank if you have whatever brand then carry.

I am located in North NJ, and wondering I am wondering where are people going to get refilled if they own the smaller tanks?

Won't be able to finish my brakes today.

Airgas might fill tanks, but I know they exchange them and will exchange if they are in date. They exchange my 20CF tank for another when I run out.

Thanks Matt, saw that there is an airgas about 45 minutes away. I am little surprised from reading online it looks like a challenging thing to getting refills. Seems like companies try to pair the tank with the gas which is pretty monopolistic imo.

Try NAPA auto parts also. I can get mine exchanged there.

Oxy/Acetylene Filling

You might check your local phone book or go online and search for "Welding Supplies". I would venture to say all of them do a cylinder exchange and as stated above, as long as your cylinder is still in date.
