    Apparently you have never owned a business.

    Several, actually. Does that have something to do with my post?

    Same.. I don't trust aluminum for overfilling although every once in a while I end up with 3200 inadvertently.

    I can do things in my shop that my employees cannot. Because I am not under OSHA. When there is an inspection and they want to look at certain areas where only I work I simply tell them that only I work there.

    If your employees are exposed to a danger such as an exploding cylinder you are endangering them and the general duty clause would apply. I am in construction and our company has been fined because of a hazard several floors below where we are working because our employees had access to the area. It all depends on the inspector and how much they actually know. If you have a industrial hygienist come out on a construction site they are generally clueless about the hazards and don't even know what questions to ask or look at. If you have someone file a complaint and that person is knowledgeable you are screwed.

    Makes sense. What do you consider to be a 'decent fill'?

    For me that would be working pressure “cold” as most fill stations I encounter might fill to working pressure “hot”.

    That would be my definition as well. It's unfortunate that you encounter fill stations that leave you with a short fill.

    Picked my LP85s up after hydro and + rating. Four years of 3600 psi fills didn't cause them to be condemed. Was only able to get them filled to 3000, but have another shop or two to check out.
