While Heather is a certified diver, she does not share the same appreciation for.......love of......obsession......yes she does not share the same obsession that I do for Scuba. If she said she would like those as wind chimes, I would know she was looking to cash in on insurance when they fell on my head
So I purchased a couple of tanks this weekend at a garage sale. They are likely scrap because I only paid $5 each for them (prolly made of 6351 or something) but I could not decipher the stamped info on them so I figured what the heck. Worst case I am out $10.
At $5 each you will make a nice profit, even if they are just scrap. Post the stamped info here, I am sure one of us will be able to decipher it. What is the original Hydro date?
Of course that DOESN'T mean nobody will fill them, it just means you need the Eddy current test and a shop that WILL fill them. Or you just scrap them and put the money in a jar to save up for other thanks.
I had purchased an older AL80 that was a GOOD alloy, but failed hydro. They hydro tech said he never saw a tank expand as fast as this one did. Luckily the AL30 and other stuff I bought with it were all good. The overall investment was a good one. I have to remember to take it to the scrap yard at some point.
