Are you talking about CO2 or using compressed air for it? Ex. Viair air pump or AC compressor.

You can use alot of things for an air canister.. keg shell, fire extinguisher, sealed bumper/rock slider. But it is important to know the PSI rating. For CO2 it looks pretty good.

I used a scuba tank for a few years to air up my tires. From the looks of the picture the tank has a few years on it. If you keep the scuba valve on it , a scuba shop can fill it but it has to be in hydro and visually current. This can cost from $20 to $40 to have done...The tricky part is finding a scuba yoke with the fittings for a regulator to bring the pressure down to a safe range to fill tire or operate some tools. A welding shop I doubt will have a scuba yoke adapter to fill the tank and then you have to change to valve too. I believe the CO2 thread is diffenerent than the Scuba tank size. Just take the tank to a welding suppply and tell the guy what you want to do. He may have the valve that fits the top of the tank that all of the appropriate regulators can screw into and you will be good to go.

I 2nd that, I really think the hardest thing for you is going to be the threading on the scuba tank and fitting tha the threading of a regulator. As far as age and PSI, do you plan on filling it with an on board air compressor or filling it as needed from a garage air compressor, either way you will probubly only need about 200 psi if that regulated down to fill your tires or run air tools. The tank is probubly rated for much higher than that it just might be out of date. You could still have it retested just to be safe but I doubt you'll need to based on how much pressure your really going to be putting into it.
