    Thought I would say hello. I’ve been lurking and absorbing information from the site for a little while. Based on this I have just purchased a R-Tech 180, due to be delivered on Thursday :D. Managed to get a little discount by buying a shop soiled one.

    I will be mostly be doing car related stuff. I have a couple of projects that need some welding. Will need to relearn as used to be ok with MIG about 25 years ago when I restored a MG midget.

    Just need to sort gas now. Looking at SGS, does anyone know if they are still doing the cash back?

    I’m sure I will be looking for some advise as time goes on.

    I guess you’re thinking if the Valleys where if you can’t see the other side of the valley - it is raining, if you can see it then it’s about to rain.
    Scorching hot at the moment.

    Hello and welcome.
    You don't say what part of South Wales.
    Is there an FMP motor factors near you? I know they do gas bottles with no rental that kind of thing.

    Welcome. South Wales covers a multitude of sins, but @fizzy is even more opaque!

    I’m just outside Newport. Found a SGS supplier a few miles away and just picked up a 10l bottle.

    It was £44 for gas and then a fully refundable bottle deposit of £84 I think, so no rent.

    There is a cash back offer from SGS on the first purchase/deposit to members of the forum, the boss is on here. I’ll see if I can find the link, he had a post about it in the last few days.

    Is there more than 1 in South Wales?

    I know there’s one in Shropshire, Isle of White and a small one north of London, but don’t know of any others around here.
