    never mind I misread the thread and thought you said that helium wasnt attainable in the 300 cf bottle. My bad and sorry.

    Dyn88,

    i'm not sure what you mean? Do you mean is the helium atom bigger? how is it over there on the eastern part of CT?

    Gary,

    I was saying the fill of a large bottle (300 cuft size) only runs about 65 bucks depending on where you go, i have one customer who goes through 5 a week and he gets a price of around 44 bucks or so. As for the sale of the tanks we don't sell anything larger then an 80 cuft size cyl. I think it might be a CT thing but all of other gas/welding suppliers out here don't sell them either.

    now are you staying the bottle $65 or the fill? The bottle was $190 but with the trade in of the S bottle i only payed $38.

    GaryM,

    that bottle should only cost you around 65 bucks or so, maybe even cheaper depending on where you are. And i have to agree with dyn88, s/s likes lower amps, and that he/ar mix might be a little to hot, depending on the thickness of s/s your welding.

    be carfull. Stainless likes a lower temp and the helium makes for a hotter arc. If you are used to a fast travel speed then He may be good for you.

    started a topic Helium

    I got a bottle of 50/50 argon/helium and LOVE IT!!!! It drops the weld amps and the puddle flows out so much nicer.

    The cost of it was not so nice. What they call a T bottle think its the largest one before the big stainless steel tanks. The fill was $101

    Anyway can wait to try some stainless. Was only doing aluminum
