    Thirty or forty more bungee cords and you should be good to go. They'll work better closer to the bottom of the bottle, though.

    Who uses a hand truck to move an 80 cf bottle?

    Also, that clashes with your color scheme...time to get out the rattlecans!

These things are everywhere now, they practically gave them away by the pallets. When you find one it works out though cause they are still relevant to swap at suppliers. Someone in California may not be aware, but everyone on this side knows coke only does aluminum tanks for years now so everyone knows they are not coke tanks anymore. If you get lucky and find one, you can make it work for you. this argon is for my aluminum spoolgun so i don't have to use my tig argon to mig ally.
    I am planning on keeping my CO2 bottle for my small 135 amp mig welder. Reason I was wondering how things worked out for you is my CO2 bottle is also steel and has Coke stamped onto it. I picked it up at a garage sale and haven't tried getting it filled yet. I know it is out of date by quite awhile, so I am sure if they will fill it I will need to get it tested first.

    40 years of running wire, all I have ever used is C02, unless its a cored wire that requires C25 or another mixed gas. Perhaps it is you that needs to open your mind a bit.
    If you can set the machine properly, you might be amazed at how little spatter there is, and it makes overhead and vertical up welds child's play. I guarantee you wont see much C25 in the bigger fab shops.

    So now you are deflecting from your diatribe about how CO2 mig is junk? You are so wishy washy I have no use for your Vids.

    Huh? I said what i wanted about CO2. Everything Steve said about CO2 is correct. I don't like it. Unless you have stock in CO2 who gives a damn. I'll run C25 like the rest of the world and be happy doing it. Who asked you to use my videos? Are you lonely or something? I didn't post it "for you" why do i care if you use it? Lort..... Go make a friend and chat with them. I'm not begging for attention like you are. Nobody called your name.

    I just have to ask this... Do you weld in the real world everyday? or are you just a hobby guy with a you boob channel? In the real world Co2 and E70 S-6 are the most common combination you are going to find.
