    Welding Gas - Argon CO2 mix

    Forum Sponsor
    I need to do a couple of small mods to my trailer but am out of gas on my MIG. I need to weld on brackets to bolt on a lockable aluminum storage box

    I have a 40cf Hobart tank and when I lived in Vancouver I could just take it to KMS and they would fill it - they were very hobbyist friendly. Itís a small tank but I maybe use it once or twice a year so itís big enough for my needs

    Is is there anywhere in the GTA that will do it. Iíve phoned a couple of places and they want you to buy/rent their tank

    Mods, feel free to move if this is in the wrong section

    Thanks in advance

    I get mine at TSC. You buy the original bottle, and then pay every time to exchange it for a full one. I don't think there are any TSC stores in the city, but I believe the bottles are supplied to TSC by Praxair. Maybe look into Praxair suppliers?

    Or reverse the polarity on your MIG and run flux core wire.

    I have found that most places would exchange yr tank for one of theirs for a ontime fee, then they would just exchange tanks after that...

    If it is a B tank then just about any place that sells/refills tanks will exchange a filled tank for yours for the price of the gas.

    There is a TSC store in Bradford, closest one I know of. You could also Try Josef Gases in Concord (Keele & Rutherford area)

    There are TSC stores in Orangeville and Milton as well. I'm in the same position and just about empty, using flux core most of the time. I will be shopping for a new helmet at the time of refill as well. I resent demurrage charges.
