Jethro, rodp, dunno what to say really. i obviously live in a pu, those prices are brilliant. Many thanks. I suppose for these sort of prices one can take a gamble. I must get back to my man and have a look at what there is on top of the tank. come back to you.

If it's a full size cylinder it's the same as oxygen, argon etc, standard fitting.

my info is a few years out of date but a J cylinder was roughly 150 bar * 50lt
O2 was £5 / J
N2* wag £5 / J
He was £130 to 140 /J :o :o :o

So, He wasn't cheap, well not to me but for a well todo fella like yourself ........ :D

UK pricing might be different but at the time He was expensive worldwide as relatively speaking it was and is a dwindling resource

*wag = wild arsed guess

Rod I may be wrong but I believe it depends where in the world you are.
Here every thing uses the same fittings, where as in the US every gas has a different fitting.
The equipment with the highest cost was the dedicated O2 but as you posted the standard stuff wasn't that bad.

That's a point, I assumed Hampshire just down the road a bit, not the one that's a bit of a swim :think:
