    You guys are not only informative but funny too.

    Thanks for the advise. The weight will not be a factor to the truck(big truck).
    The tank and saws will go in the back of the truck.

    I may be able to sneak a peak at a truck thats already setup.

    I need to get one of those B.S. flags for my everyday travels.

    and by the way, to be completeley accurate, 3'x4'x5'-is that inside or outside dimentions,what is the temperature of the water, height above sea level, barometric pressure, and volume of displacement of all said baffling and reinforcements. just playin'

    I agree with dave, the plastic tank is probably the way to go, they are readily available and very cost effective. not to mention the tank itself weighs a lot less. I know a plumber that got a citation for being overweight in his truck, not cheap.

    I know some pretty heavy plumbers myself. How much did this guy weigh?
    Sorry - couldn't resist

    Yeah,
    I think the cost will be prohibitive,
    The customer specs the tank, not me. I would use a poly tank myself.
    Weight will not be a problem.

    We discussed this last night, still want to pursue this.
    Thank you.

    You going to need a vent to prevent collapse? I think they run those off "garden hose" pressure.

    The tank will be plumbed to the outside of the truck and vented there also.

    Sounds like an interesting project. You going to pulse MIG, Spool Gun, or TIG it? Be sure and post some pics when you're done.

    Unfortunately the only thing I have to use on aluminum is tig. It's gonna be slow going.

    I am looking for a reasonably priced spoolgun.

    We actually made an aluminum tank/ work bench for a guy once. It holds oil from an electrical transformer. I can't remember if it was 3/16 or 1/4 inch but all of the bending and tapered bottom made it very strong. It was about 8' wide, 3' deep and over 3' tall. We mig welded it up with a spool gun, it worked really well.
    But that tank was small compared to the next one I built for the same guy!
    It mounted under an old reefer trailer that they converted into a processing plant (where the bench tank went).
