I have been taking a class at the local college on gas welding (to supplement my MIG), and am at the point of looking at buying a rig for myself. The only issue I have is transporting the bottles. I've put a shell on my truck.
I know that you're not supposed to put acetylene bottles in trunks or enclosed vans, but how much venting is necessary? Here's a pic of my truck and shell (never mind that I'm stuck in the sand):
With the big windows open, is that adequate ventilation? I could probably figure a way to prop the back door open.
Otherwise, I'll fab a hitch-mount rack for bringing bottles to and from the LWS.
