    Re: The DEFINITIVE Welding Gas Costs Thread.

    I just added entries for three of four cylinders I just had filled. I also have a 90CF tank and there's no place to enter it. Using the 80 CF line would cause a more than 10% pricing error....

    FWIW, all were filled at Carolina Carbonics and Hydrotest in Greensboro, NC. I own all my tanks, including the 280 and 320 CF ones. I didn't have issues getting them filled in Central NY where I used to live and where I did business with the same supplier for nearly 30 years. I did have some push-back at other suppliers on filling large customer owned cylinders here in NW NC after moving here last year as I've had them for years and don't have proof of ownership anymore. And all of them had to send the cylinders out to be filled.

    All my tanks needed testing and I had the three steel ones sandblasted and painted (The fourth tank is an aluminum oxygen tank). They charged $22 ea to test all the cylinders and $17 ea to sandblast and paint the steel cylinders. It seemed very fair to me. I had all four cylinders tested, three of them sandblasted and painted, all of them filled and one valve replaced for less than $300.

    Carolina Carbonics gave me no grief at all about my large cylinder, did all the work and filling in house and overall, it was a good professional experience. They get a from me....


    Thanks

    Thanks. The more people constantly enter in their info the more comprehensive the list gets, even if you're paying the same price 1x per year or 50x per year, it all helps answer that all important question: what are you guys paying for XXXXX gas now a days?

    All 150 cf high pressure cylinders are owner tanks. None are rented or leased. Same thing for 92 cf.

    Except for the Navy surplus cylinder sitting in my garage which like many military surplus cylinders has a blank neck ring. For 25 bucks figured it was worth the experiment. It was high pressure nitrogent and is now high pressure argon. My local Airgas managed to get it hydro'ed/painted/serviced but since it takes forever next time I'll drive to an inspection station myself. I don't really need the high pressure feature but I love cheap cylinders and never running low on gas. I collect and rebuild regulators so that was cheap too.

    This useful app makes finding an approved requalifier (or buying gas while on the road) easy using your phone. If you have a dumb phone then use the page and save the info:
