Thanks for all your responses.
Based on the responses I got I have decided that leasing a B tank
would be a feasible option for me. Based on your suggestions and
after doing a bit more research I have found that many company’s wont
refill a tank that does not belong to them. And even if I did buy one
and got it filled, I would probably never see my original tank again.
Leasing would also give me an added level of insurance if there is
anything wrong with the tank.
As I am planning to move from the town I live in 3 months, I have
decided to wait to lease a tank until I relocate. A couple of the
welding companies I contacted have also told me there is an acetylene
shortage so they are not accepting new accounts.
That being said I have decided to go with a small butane torch setup
for now. I see that others have asked about butane torch setups on
the forums so I will look through those to help me make a decision.
If anyone has any suggestions they would be appreciated as well.
