Most convenient option for getting shield gas
Posted by Douglas C on Jun 2nd 2018
I've been getting my shield gas here for years. I live in an area where we have one gas supplier, and to say they are bad is an understatement. High prices, often "filled" tanks are only 1200psi, and frequently the gas can be (seemingly intentionally) unusable. This is their protocol for people with owner tanks so that they can make more money renting their 60 year old tanks out monthly to get reliable service.
Enter weld fabulous to my life about seven years ago, and I've been buying filled tanks since. Even though I am nearly as far away from them geographically in the continental US as possible, I still always get my tanks in 2-3 days delivered for free. The gas is ALWAYS perfect, never had a bad tank of 75/25 or 100-Argon. The trans are always new from my experience, not just cosmetically perfect, but hydro test is always a single stamp, and always less than 12 months old.
The price has gone up a bit recently for the first time, but it is still rather reasonable considering the tank being new and if you live in an area under a gas-dictator like me, the tanks can be sold for 1/2-2/3 of the full price from the site when empty.
I do wish the occasional discount coupons weld fabulous offers would apply to tanks too in the future, it would definitely make me more prone to pre-order prior to needing them to take advantage of a deal.
I honestly do not know what I would do without these though; the only reliable alternative would be to take up a rental account and pay monthly for tanks from the 50's to get reliable gas.
Thank you weld fabulous!
