    BOC size PD is the answer to your portable bottle needs, and they're cheap...

    It looks like they only do that size in Argoshield for MIG, not pure argon.

    I could probably get away with 10ltr bottles just if i organised stuff around them. My reason for limiting myself space wise is im trying too keep the pickup looking like a every day family car from the outside, so those with long fingers dont automatically think its a work truck with valuable kit in the back. In aid of this i intend on keeping the factory standard height body coloured canopy. 20200210_164501.jpg

    To give you all an idea of the space im trying to work within.

    Thinking that possibly standard 10ltr bottles will stand up right in the spaces at the side of the security drawer. Need to get home first and measure it to be sure though.

    I think you could fit an Albee cylinder vertically in that space no probs...

    Not saying it's right, but I always transport my cylinders stored flat in the pickup as well...

    Same, mine usually gets used laying down too... Not the CO2 one, obviously.

    Unfortunately the only albee stockist in my area kicked them to the curb in favour of sgs, there is boc and a hobby weld supplier also but I have to admit im not a fan of the welding department in the industrial supplies that keeps hobby weld.

    I know you can store them lying flat but i am trying to keep the central space free for transporting bits i just need at that moment in time trying to keep all the tools and spares/consumables up and around the sides and within the security drawer. There is space behind the drawer might put them there but they would be a pain to get to and was hoping to keep that space for dual batteries.
