Do you have any paperwork that says you own the bottle? Or does it have "customer owned" or "sold" stamped on it?
Do any companies do that to bottles, mark the bottles as customer owned, i mean? Doing so shure would make exchanging bottles awefully hard. I had a reciept, and it may still be around here somewhere, but I havent even been motivated to look for it. When we moved to the new house I found the reciept for the welder and origonal tank from Airgas, Knowing me the FT reciept is in the same bundle of paperwork in the shop.
Is there a reason you think I need the reciept? Each copmany stamps their name on their bottles, along with a number for each bottle, so the Govt can track the responsability to the distributors. The bottles have to meet govt guidlines, and the responsability for that falls on the dist of the bottles/gas not the purchaser. I think this is why no other companys were willing to fill my bottle, last time I tried.
I guess I'm pretty happy with my current sheilding gas provider. I will quit hyjackinyour thred, and do as I have for the past few years, and just go with it. I was PO about it all when all this came about, but its done now, and I'm over it. It would be nice to start filling the bottle again, but with what conspired I figure its done deal.
