I use 160cuft tanks and I think I pay about $65-$70 to get them refilled. I've got 3 of them. Keep 2 filled with C25 and keep one filled with pure Argon for the TIG.

CO2 HAS A "CGA 320" Fitting, but they make an adapter to go from the inert gas regulator to the CD cylinder. Airgas part # is RAD 64003956 and costs $16.78.

I bought a Full, 125cf cylinder of 75% Argon and 25% CO2 from a random seller on Craigslist for $100. A little risky, but it worked out... When it was empty, The Local Praxair exhanged it for a full one for $57.

Try to make sure the tanks certification hasn't expired. Otherwise they may charge a little extra for the exchange if they need to recertify it...

Hmmm.. going rate here is $160 for 40cu. I think I may just go CO2 for a bit, as its easier for me to find a 5lb tank and I have the regulator.

CO2 is known to have a little more splatter but consensus say ya get better penetration. I do not know I have only used 75 25.

I can live with less splatter than I have now. Just getting tired of porous welds, and want to weld thinner metals.
