So I'm very new to welding and recently purchased a Handler 140 and was looking to get a cylinder to run C25. I would only anticipate using the welder a few times a year, so my plan was to buy my own tank.
Am I somehow asking for trouble if I were to buy a tank like this? http://cgi.ebay.com/40-CF-WELDING-CY...ht_1270wt_1139
The price seems really good, but would local places refuse to exchange/refill it for me?
And is it even possible to drop off your own tank to be refilled instead of just exchanged? Mostly to avoid ending up with a branded tank if I want to go to a different gas supplier.
I'm a grad student and anticipate moving across the country a couple times in the next 5 or 6 years which is why I'm worried about getting stuck with a tank I can't get filled. This is also the reason I want to go with such a small tank.
Also, is 60cf an oddball size? Or would that be just as easy to get exchanged?
