Welding gas

Just wondering where the cheapest place to get Argon/CO2 mix here in town?

I've been running my 110v Lincoln with flux core since I got it 3 years ago and am finally thinking about getting some gas for it.

Thanks,
James

I get mine at Tractor Supply, only because they are open on weekends, which is when I always seem to run out.

Thanks Mitch. I looked at their site and the cost for the gas doesn't look too bad, but the cost with a tank (which I don't have) is pretty high. I do like the fact I have a tractor supply about a mile from the house though.

I had called a couple places months ago and they did the exchange program and the price was considerably cheaper at one place but I can't remember now.

So, those who have used gas a long time, should I do the exchange deal or just bite the bullet and get my own tank so I just have to pay for the gas refill? If I should just buy my own tank, where is the cheapest place for that?

Thanks for the help.

James

Thats a good price, but a bit far to drive for a refill... I was looking for something a little more local

I know TSC is high on the bottle, but after that one time purchase, you just swap them out when you go back.

maskale just gettin started
I'm not anywhere near u. But. A 125 cost me around 200 to buy and like 40$ to refill. I say buy the bottle and be done vs renting them. Unless u need a large volume. The largest my local place lets me buy is 150, but they are not as common to have in stock as the 125.

Bought a bottle many years back from paramount supply which is now airgas on 3rd & Osage. Can't remember the price but I did shop around and they were the cheapest. Thing is there is no telling if they still are the cheapest.

This is who I use..I want to say it is like $35 to fill and $40 for a bottle rental...so $75 up front and $35 to refill as needed and the $40 annually, I think...I could be off a little...Just call them and talk to Ricky.
