I have a 5lb tank that looks twice the size of this. Is this just a different type of 5lb tank? Or is it a 2.5lb tank? The only weight on it says 7.5lbs...

Thanks,

It looks like one of the bottles from a portable brazing/cutting torch set.
That would put it at around two pounds.

While surface rust needn't mean much, that type of tank is usually is swapped pretty regularly or sits around in a garage or barn for years. Rhetorical question for you, is the hydro test current?

I know you said rhetorical but I will answer anyways. A friend of mine gave it to me along with a beermeister kit. He had it sitting in his garage for a while. So I doubt that it has been tested in long time. Maybe the welding supply place down the road from me do swap/fills. It would be nice to have a backup to my backup tank.:icon_wink
