Post Acetylene Refill?
Anyone know of a place up here where I can get my #5 tank swapped / filled? And by know a place, I mean know of a cheap place. I have a gas place across the hwy from me that I bought my welding tank from, airgas isn't far, just not sure either is going to be cheap. :?

Lol 145 cubic feet? Na I just checked my local spot and it's $70-85, but I was guessing it would be over $100, so still not bad.

Guess 145cui is actually #4? Any ways I chose a tank with a 110 charge and with fill charge, haz mat and tax, came to 92.65 (gas was 71 of that.)

Gasses seem to get more expensive all the time... I swear my welding tank swap has doubled in ~10 years. Such is life I suppose.
