My gas supplier folded, I took it in the back side for $380 in deposit, they collected the tanks, and folded, never issuing the the check, so now Im once bit, twice shy.
I need to find a new supplier, any comments on whether I should buy new bottles or lease ? Was thinking if I owned them, I could take them where I want to get filled. In the event my selected supplier jacked their rates, but some other competitor did not. That was my thinking, also cant get screwed out of my deposit again, but Ive not priced buying bottles or a lease prices in years.
Not sure what size bottles I had, they where, I dont know, 5' tall, and maybe a 12" diameter.
I need one of each, oxygen, acetylene, and argon mix for mig welding.
Any of you guys know what your paying for lease or what you paid for cylinders, or to refill, any numbers to throw out there before I go shopping, any caveats.
Im doing only repair work, so most of my gas goes to cutting (rusty stuff), not welding, and I dont do allot of Mig welding, just repair there too, not fabricating much, just a weld here and there.
Thanks in advace, BK
