    Dumb argon question...

    Can I draw gas from my argon tank while it is on it's side or angled...say 45*? I'm thinking about mounting my new Dynasty under my welding table and I'd like to put my 200cf tank under it too but it is too tall obviously.

    Can I do it or is that a no-no?

    If you have a ball-type flow meter, just rotate it to vertical when the tank is laying down. If not, then no issues as argon is still a gas under pressure. CO2 is a different story.

    Cool, thanks guys. No ball type, just dial indicators. This will make my life much easier.
