CO2 Refills Around Quincy... on the Weekend?

Hey all, I was wondering if there were any places to do the following:

1) Purchase a 5lb CO2 container (preferably from a place that refills them).

2) Refill that CO2... But on the weekend. Preferably with a CO2 exchange rather than a tank refill. I work from 8-5 in the city, but bringing the tank to work would not be ok, so the weekend is my alternative. Taking a day off work to screw around is not an option, hah.

If not Quincy, south of Boston would work generally. It takes me over an hour to get out to Framingham from where I am, so I'd prefer to know if anyone does it close by.

Gorham Fire does it and I'm willing to go there, but they close at 4:30 and aren't open on the weekends.

Tolman does refills I believe on the weekend, but I'd prefer to stay outside of the city.

There's an Airgas location in Hingham. I would go with something bigger than 5lbs since you're paying mostly for the labor on swaps. I think I paid $40 for a 20lb co2 swap at Aigas near me. Granted, you need to either bring a tank or purchase one there to swap.

Thanks! $40 doesn't seem too bad. How much was a tank there? I just don't have one yet myself.

Also, they don't seem to be open on the weekend...
