what i meant by the co2 thing, to use doncasters re-fill service, i'd need to get a co2 bottle and a co2 regulator to fit it, but the bottle will be filled with argon,
Have a look at this thread, I posted the "official" hobby deal prices there. Contact Adam (also in that thread) for up to date prices, he's very helpful.
If I remember correctly BOC is a two year deal, I may be mistaken, but Id check.Cheers,
so... 52 rental for the year, 52 gas fill, plus vat, £124.80... oh yeah plus the charge for the privilege of using boc and collecting a bottle from them, which is hopefully that £5.99 for the hobby user... and i guess environmental charges and any others they tack on that i'd need to opt out of like paper billing etc,
i think for my first year, boc may be the one to use then, i can see me using at least 2 bottles over that year, then i will look at the no rent deals again next year, but apart from chorley gas, it seems to get the same amount of gas as is in a boc 20 litre bottle (5 cubic meters they recon) i'd need to be spending nearer 200 quid for the first bottle, yeah sure i can get the deposit back.. but cant weld after that, so i'd still need to find £100 or so for each 20 litre refill,
If you move, you just move your account address, no different to your mobile phone or anything elsethat's what i was hoping for,
so if i get say 6 months here, then move, i'd be able to get at least some money back from boc for the year i paid for (tho i imagine lots of admin fees will eat into it)
Just hang up a welding curtain, open a window and give her a respirator, sorted!unfortunately i'll be moving to a flat,
tho i just mentioned this to my GF, and she asked why i cant weld in the dining room... so theres hope... lol
I've been with BOC now for a year and still find it difficult to understand the invoices; I've just received this morning a BOC invoice for £62.40 which I presume is the yearly subs? I've paid in full anyway because being fully retired means I don't have lots of spare time with lots more pressing jobs to sort out.
