We are in the process of moving, and my welders are not hooked up at the present. I am wondering how to move my Mig and Tig welding tanks safely as well as cutting torch tanks.

The guy at the welding supply center said it is safe to lay tanks down flat as long as the covers are on them and they are secure.

I am thinking of making a wooden cradel to hold these flat and lash them down securly in that.

Any comments or suggestions. I will be hauling them in the back of my pickup. It is a long move from Colorado to Montana so it is about an 8 hour drive.

I know you need to let Act. Tanks stand up right quite a while before using them again once they have been laying down.

Unfortuantly I am not able to weld a metal rack to stand them upright in my pickup right now.

Thank you very much for your help!
