    Re: Co2 pub bottle refill

    I work for a brewery so I can get as much CO2 as I want for free.
    But I don't - I have an account with BOC and I use proper Argoshield. CO2 produces ****ty welds (in my experience) and my welding needs as much help as it can get.

    Try www.mig-welding.co.uk forum and look in the shielding gas suppliers thread, but you would be much better off with an argoshield bottle a gas, i had price from energas last year of jst short of 120 to take a bottle, this included the gas, the gauge, the yearly rental on the bottle and the enviromental surcharge, this was for the second size up bottle and was around 50 cheaper than boc.

    Spot on!Using incorrect gas can cause weak /porous/non-penetrating welds.Last thing you want on ,chassis,steering etc.
    As far as BOC are concerned,they have recently started tagging their bottles with a serial number and will only exchange a bottle registered to an account.

    I thought pub gas didn't get the heat into the weld as good? I have had a BOC account for about 8 years now and just recently asked if i can pay monthly. Yep, aint a problem as my 85 was due 24th Dec, not a good time of the year. I now pay Just under 8 per month which i hardly notice and have nice clean welds, well most of the time,

    Adams Gas deliver, no rentals, cost me 70 for my argon mix delivered. Pub Co2 from friendly landlord, but make sure it's pure CO2 not the mix. Apparently fizzy drinks places will refill also, haven't got one round here so thats hearsay only.

    Re: Co2 pub bottle refill

    like e said ,frequent a local pub & have a word with the landlord/landlady.....that was the original reason for using "pub gas" to the best of my knowledge????
    i personaly use adams gas from margate for my argon/co2 mix but you have to live in kent(i do...just)

    Re: Co2 pub bottle refill

    Try asking the manager in your local if you can buy the gas off him,he may be ok if you have a bottle to exchange with him,like all gases your meant to rent the bottle from BOC etc it costs about 85 a year just for the rental on my co2/argon mix. it depends where you go when you go for gas some people want the account details when you buy the gas others just swap the bottles and take the money no questions asked.I couldn't get a argon light bottle filled at BOC as i don't have it on my account as being used
