CO2 Refills in Raleigh Area

Can anyone point me to some place to fill my Co2 tanks besides National Welders?? They will not fill the tanks that I own, they want to swap with their tanks, and lets just say their tanks look like rental tanks, and mine are well cared for. I live in Clayton, and would rather find someplace close if possible.

Nevermind I found a place right in Clayton. If anyone is interested its BFPE International. They will refill your tanks for you, I have yet to get down there but I will post prices and service as soon as I do.

Well I went to BFPE to get my CO2 tank filled today and in 10 minutes they had it filled and I was out the door, no excchange, and it cost $10.00 to fill, a far cry from the $22.00 it cost me at National Welders in Raleigh. If your interested in filling in the Clayton or Southern Raleigh Area this seems to be the place to go!

Thanks for the info.

I'm getting ready to purchase a CO2 tank and was wondering where was the best place to get it refilled.

Also try beer and wine making shops in Raleigh. Some of them are willing to sell nice shiny food-grade aluminium canisters, and refill instead of swap. You can also find good regulators in those types of stores.

I think there is a beer-making store on stoneybrook dr in raleigh, and a wine-making one in cary. Fill up at the beer-maker in raleigh was like $21 for a 10lb canister I think.
