    International is a PITA. I have moved a lot and every country has been new bottles or fittings.

    Best represented that I have found is "air liquide". Even they are only in a handful of countries.

    Third world is easier. Make sure you have a lot of adapters and fittings and a good pressure gauge for filling. During my Africa and South America stints my experience is the will fill your bottle if they can hook it up.

    That said pure argon is the hardest gas to get. Tig is simply a first world luxury!

    Acetalin on the other hand.... they love that in third world countries.

    Good looking crew.

    Looks like your interior paint work has been taking a licking. What did you use?

    Every time I get an update of this thread I get excited to see the progress. The ability of the human mind to yearn for a dream and make it real is fascinating and inspiring to observe. Thank YOU for following your dream so that others can see the possibilities available to them.
    "Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe My Mother wrote that in my high school yearbook and I've believed it ever since. Sail on my friends, Sail on.
