yup, that probably did it. kinda like they were starting up numerous times per minute. but she's all good now.
on another note, got my co2 cylinder today. 20# cylinder cost me a whole $30 with trading in my old,outdated co2/argon bottle from an old welder i had. my dad is dropping off a spare regulator he has lying around from his keg on saturday. just gonna need some incidentals (drop checker, needle valve,ect) and either build or buy a stand and the 75 will be almost ready to go. still need to decide on a substrate. but i have a strange feeling that i am going to be going with either black flourite sand, or black diamond grit.
