Default Those that work M-F, how do you get your CO2?

I just started working 40 hours a week M-F, and everywhere I've check to get my CO2 tanks filled are open only while I'm working.

So is there some secret I don't know about to finding a place with longer hours to fill/exchange?

I am in your boat kinda....right now I can score on Mondays lol... Check to see if you have a welding shop ....My local "Oxygen" shop does exchanges till noon on Saturdays but I didnt want to buy in yet.....thinking about doing a 20oz Paintball back up..since I currently have no back-up plan and just jinx myself

Cheers

I didn't want to have to give up my lunch hour, but I guess I might have to. My local airgases aren't open on Saturdays. I also wasn't too happy with the thought of a CO2 tank chilling in my car all afternoon.

The stupid thing is that I have an empty 20#, and hooked up my "backup" 10# and drained that (because of a leak) before I ever got around to filling the 20# again! Ugh.

I strictly use 20 oz tanks and get them filled at dicks. Works out well because there is a dicks right across the street from work and its actually cheaper than getting a 5 lb tank filled at the local gas place.

I think there is an adapter.

I've got a Linweld right next to my place of work. Convenient but expensive.
