buying/renting co2 tank
Hey guys and gals,
Just curious on what you suggest in regards to getting a co2 tank.
1- Would it be better/cheaper to buy one or rent one out from a local welding shop?
I understand that some places do the swap, so its pointless to buy a new shiny tank, but still which would be the "cheaper" way of getting one?
2- How does the renting process work? Do you just put down a certain amount as a deposit, take the tank use it for as long as you would like and when/if you are done completely, you can return it and get the full deposit back??
Whats the avrg price for a deposit on say a 10lb tank??
3- Also Ive heard that with the welding shops/compressed gas distributors/fire extinguisher places, you can swap say an oxygen/acetylene or any other gas tank for a co2 tank. Did anyone actually do this?
Thanks in advance
