      Now worth the risk!!!
      Just get piece of pipe that size & weld cap or plate on end. No risk.

        Thanks for posting that link. Very interesting. If you look closely, that is made from an air tank so would be safer to cut into.....

          Here is a mailbox I made for an artist friend who wanted a unique mailbox as an easy way to find her studio and gallery.

          Used a 20 lb propane tank as the body.

          Have made about 8 to 10 of these "propane piggies" for friends as yard art.

          My safery preparation procedure:

          1 - Start with "empty" tanks.

          2 - Use a special wrench I made to fit the valve. (looks sort of like a crows foot wrench)

          3 - Use air powered impact wrench with 12" extension on the wrench.

          4 - Submerge propane tank in 55 gallon drum full of water before removing valve.
          ( In case of sparks)

          5 - With valve removed - fill tank with water, 4 table spoons of powdered dishwasher detergent and a squirt of liquid dishwashing detergent. Let it sit for 1-2 days, drain and repeat. This gets out the mercaptan additive (rotten egg) smell.

          6 - After I have a " cleaned" tank, I still never cut or weld on it unless it is vented or has a big hole in it.
          Don't want to end up on "America's #1 Idiot show"

          Now I can cut off the handle and base ring and build the piggies.

          Have fun but please be safe.
