    Dang it!

    I got a 2" sched 10 stainless weld test tomorrow, so I get set up and everything taped up for practice go to turn my argon bottle on. The bottle was left on I have no argon to practice with now. I hope this is not a sign of things to come tomorrow. Oh man this is frustrating.

    I would bring mine over but it would take a few days to get there.

    That's unfortunate, many guys always suggest having two bottles . Tough call depending on tank prices by you.

    Sorry, think positive !! Maybe they run out of argon tomorrow too . GOOD LUCK

    Take it as a sign that resting up and relaxing today would be more beneficial than more practice.
    You'll be fine.

    On another note, many laugh at my 80cu ft bottles. They are small but the largest ones I can just exchange without having a lease in my area. I have 3 for C/25 and 3 for argon. The day Im dumb enough to run out of any gas on a weekend ....I think my days are done.

    Good luck tomorrow!

    I was practicing the same thing not to long ago, I just like to practice for reassurance on test day. I don't get flustered much on test day, but there were a few things I need to work on.
