Here's a redneck solution: Looks like it would work though.
Not around here they aren't. They get exchanged for a full tank or refilled. New ones run 40-70$ and would still have to be converted... Except for the guy who got my spare tank for free off my porch a few years back.Used propane tanks are free.
Like that but much much older. The one I have the guard ring around the valve is really close to the valve. And I know how to use a pipe wrench and what direction it goes. Have them from a small 8" to a big 48" aluminum Ridgid one. And many 14" ones that get the most use.
How? It was empty when I started, and I filled and emptied it with air until the mercaptan smell was goneWouldn't that be eligible for a Darwin Award wen you connect it to a tank full of propane to blow out dust of your drill?
Mine was a leftover from back in my Jeep hill climbing days in the 70's. It was on my camper trailer. Harbor Freight sells one too, comes with the hose and fittings.Even used propane tanks aren't cheap. Found a 5-gal 125-psi air tank @ Tractor Supply for $33 but it would still need some correct hose and fittings.
Yep they need to leave room for the liquid to out gas to go into the grill or what ever.Most I think have 15lb in a 20lb tank.
The new ones are, but they don't get recertified like a welding gas tank has to. The propane tanks have a 250PSI working pressureHere they are stamped and dated, pressure tested also
What unsuspecting person? Only a thief would have done that by breaking into my shop. They were originally made for a real propane tank, I am just using one for an air tank conversion, to make my life easier.Ok, ok. But if an unsuspecting person finds your special adapter and uses it on a real propane tank?
