Anyone use the disposable oxygen tanks for aerating?
I can't find where to purchase the disposable O2 tanks. I don't have any welding shops nearby and the big HD/Lowes by me don't carry them. I want to go this route for aerating. Can you buy online? Other suggestions?

If I go the non-disposable route, anyone know of good deals out there on tanks?

Wow, HD/Lowes doesn't have them? Are you sure? I don't believe it is legal to ship them filled, so ordering on line won't get you disposable.

On several occasions I've had a sales person at HD/Lowes tell me they don't carry them but they do. Search by the welding section and look at the shelve on the floor - rad cannister.

I've heard a lot of times to check in the plumbing area of HD/Lowes. So i was at Lowes last night and i thought I'd check out the disposable tanks. I looked all around the plumbing area and all i could find was propane and MAPP gas. A while back i bought a little portable propane burner in the tool area, so i went over there just to check it out, and thats where I was able to find O2 tanks. So if you only checked in plumbing, check in tools and so on. Just thought i'd mention this incase you were under the same impression as I was prior to last night.

As far as buying them online it seems like you can. I found this on amazon, although it costs more than i saw it last night at Lowes, http://www.amazon.com/Bernzomatic-OX9-Oxygen-Fuel-Cylinder/dp/B000LDEYI0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1204825816&sr=8-2

Lowes was like $7-$8

yeah, i too have gotten the "we don't carry that" from home depot. went and looked in the tools section, where they have soldering torches and such and they were right there.

I use O2. The Lowes near me has them in the welding and brazing section (aisle 71 or something), near the tools. They cost about $8.

NICE! I will use my eyes next time. I will let you know......

What O2 system did you all go with? Out of a HBS or ???

I'd be willing to bet the people you taled to just don't know where to look. They carry oxygen at just about ANY hardware store
