how are you going to get the gas out? you need the regulator. which I could only find in the benzomatic welding kit for about 50 bucks. the O2 is left hand thread so you cant use a propane torch tip to get the gas out. I had already thought of that and even brought one with me to test fit when I found out about the thread difference.
after that ya just the tank

I bought something similiar of this from my lhbs for 30 bucks...



I picked up a racking cane for another buck, and put the airstone between that and the hose, just like the kit you can get from midwest supplies.

ok I'm jealous. normally I find it cheaper to find sources outside of LHBS for items like this. I guess a should have looked around a bit. Oh well at least I have a light duty weld kit now.

Are you positive that the regulator part of my kit can't be found through mcmaster carr or somewhere? I figured it was just some regular piece of welding equipment or something that some enterprising homebrewer (like our own Yuri) looked at one day and said "I can brew with that!"
