    Billy,
    That looks like one of my earlier attempts at a silhouette target for my Mini-14... A .223 leaves about a 1/2" copper-plated hole in 1/4" mild steel like crap through a goose.

    mini engine stand

    This is just somthing that I tossed together for working on small engines(snowmobile,atv,lawn mower).It works just like the full size ones just on a smaller scale.It`s a lot better than rolling the engine around on the work bench when your trying to put them together.

    No. At least , it shouldn't be, unless you are doing something strange. A wire-feed MIG uses either 100% CO2 (as in a type B fire extinguisher) or some mixture of CO2 with argon and/or helium (both inert.)

    gas bottle

    as a newcomer my question is- is the bottle (for wire fed units) flamable to the point where it should be in a separate area than a heater or furnace?

    thanks

    Reminds me of a little story that happened to a freind of mine in Tucson. A little twist on the ownership papers thing. He was renting his bottles and the outfit he was renting from sold out to another company. In the transfer his paperwork got lost and when he tried to get a refill there was no record of him, they said as far as they were concerned, he owned the bottles so he basicly got a free OA bottle set. As far as I know he has never had a problem filling them.

I have 8 other tanks, NONE with receipts, and never have a problem exchanging them, and I've gotten gas from three different dealers in this area, Praxair, Airgas, and California Industrial.
    I have seen when there is a theft somewhere, they will start checking paper work. I havent been checked in a long time , but if they do, and you dont have it , you dont get it.

    Tanks

    I just bought two 125 cf tanks from Airgas for $164.00 each, and the 80 cf were around $159.00. So it was a no brainer on which to buy. I bought others in the past as well and have never had a problem exchanging them. But it wouldn't hurt to keep the receipt in case they ever ask for it. You may check around, and get a better price from someone in your area, make sure to check prices on the different sizes, the larger one may only be just a little more. Hope this helps.

    If you plan to be in it for the long haul ,I think its better to buy a bottle. Haveing said that, I would not nessessarily go for a new one becouse after the first exchange you have some old used one any way. The place that rents bottles and exchanges them in my area sold me used one much cheaper than buying a new one. The big advantage is that I can exchange it anywhere since its mine , with papers. ( if you buy one its essential that you save youre sales record for proof of ownership).

    cyperweld

    I saw cyperweld mentioned earlier and I just purchase a new Miller Trailblazer 302 from them. I had no problems whatsoever and they had a super price. Would definitely buy from them again. Go luck with your new machine.

    Excellent decision. The 210 is by far a more user friendly unit then the 175. Plus performance wise the the 210 is a far better unit then the 175.
