[quote=mobilemail]I see welding supplies at auctions now and then. What are the chances of buying your own nitrogen bottle at an auction, and just having a supplier fill it?[/quote]


New to this forum, but I am a long time user of cylinder gas and dealing with weld supply shops. Most of them want proof of ownership to verify that the tanks are not stolen. There is also the matter of pressure testing. If you lease the tanks, the supplier is responsible for the periodic testing that is required. If you own them that cost is on you.

The lifetime or 90 year lease if it's an option in your area is a good choice, you don't pay monthly rental (demurrage -old school for rent)

I haven't been over here for a while, https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Compressor_Team/info is a HPA compressor forum mostly for dive compressors, but the info is good :>)

Jim Sheldon is the resident guru over there.
