  • Gas Cylinder

    Hey guys I have a question about a gas cylinder I purchased from a garage sale. Tank is a 135 cubic foot. Tank has Property of IND GAS PRODUCTS & SUPPLY CO Soda Springs" stamped on it. Old man at the garage sale said he has had this tank for nearly 4 years and he purchased it at auction. Tank is in excellent shape. Bottle is oxygen and is empty. What is the policy at most welding shops for trading in bottles? Will they hassle me with the stamping of " Property of Ind Gas" on it? I was going to trade it in on a Argon bottle.... My local Miller shop knows me from many previous purchases. Thanks for the help.....

    I just drug home a big CO2 bottle that was 20 years out of test. My dad bought it 25 years ago for scrap price from a local company that went out of business and i had it retested for 11 bucks and filled for 33 dollars with no problem. I also just bought a set of bottles in GA and hauled them to OH and my local guy filled them also with no problems. So i guess its up to your LWS as to fill them...Bob

        Tank

        Tank was customer owned. And was a 165 Cubic Foot. So I really scored for a $60.00 price for the tank...

        Here is what I am working on....



        39 Chevy truck chopped 6" with a 700 HP big block.... Hows that for a welding project...

            GENERALY PRIVETLY OWNED TAKS HAVE BLANK RINGS ON THEM. THE TANK YOU HAVE IS THE PROPERTY OF :IND GAS PRODUCTS & SUPPLY CO Soda Springs" and was a rental. odds are good you wont be able to fill it with a name on the top ring. i have one now with a name one the ring but its the guy i fill it with and i can get a clean ring if i chose to sell it because its in my records as a privetly owned tank.
            with that said it will depend on your LWS some fillers are more strict than others. i cirtenly would not buy one at a yard sale without a recept if its got a name on the ring.
            good luck i hope you can get it filled, here there is no way they would fill it for me.
            thanks for the help

              Tank

              My local Miller shop took the tank and traded it in for tank for my Mig welder. No questions asked..... So everything turned out ok.....

                glad to hear they did the exchange for ya.
                i wish i had a tank place like that near me, i have to go 100 miles round trip just to get my 125 filled.
                thats going to be a great looking truck when its finished, heck i love it now.
                best i could come up with was a 51 to rebuild. but i used it as a work truck for may years first.
                now all i need to do is get some $$ and time to put into her.
                she definitely earned it.

                  Fun4now that looks like a good project.

                  Here is my other welding project that has been finished for a few years...

                  six six impala

                  I have made so many custom suspension parts for the Impala I have lost track....

                  And here is short video how the car sounds.... Video Clip

                  I have a "little" 355 small block that puts out 530 HP and 585 TQ. Really fun family car....

                        wireburner, i'll be happy to turn it into a welding truck if you are willing to buy me the Trailblazer for the bed.
                        i did use it for a work truck for many years when i was building houses. she carried a full load of carpentry tools, generator, air compressor, and another 2-300lbs of nail's and connectors, air hoses, extension cords and what not. i put over 400,000 miles on it like that. she earned a proper rebuild, now i just have to figure out how to pay for it. but she will get a rebuild some day. i'm seriously considering selling my Mercedes sports car (see attached) to finance the truck rebuild.
                        kind of sad really. when i was working i had plenty of $$ to rebuild the truck but no time, now i have time but no $$$
                        as much as i will miss the convertible the truck is really always been my favorite, the car just a status symbol or bachelors car.not bad for picking up the ladies and a great cruiser, but not much of a family car. it doesn't even have a back seat. but is a fine ride just the same.

                            no its a big azzed V8 that gets about 8 miles to the gal.
                            but it a but load of fun to drive and breaking the wheels lose at 70 is a pice of cake. took it to 100 in low gear just to see if it would .LOL
                            take the top off and its a real eye catcher.
