    Just a browser of this forum for now but glad I stumbled across this thread. I am enrolled into night school for 16 weeks next year to do a panel and paint course. Love to learn more about it etc.

    One question someone in here might be able to answer, with an oxy/acetylene set up, how much do the bottles cost to hire and/or refill etc? Ive heard all Oxygen tanks and acetylene tanks are not for sale and you must hire them. Is this true? I think ill get more use out of an oxy set up than a mig but will probably have both eventually.

    I think it works out about 200 a year for the acyletaline and a bit cheaper for the oxygen. I looked into it as well and whilst oxy is good to learn with, it can distort the panels allot due to the heat.

    Recently the place where I get my gas from started letting you buy outright bottles. So whilst it may seem allot of $ for a bottle up front if you use it on weekends and sporadically in the long run you save allot

    For shrinking panels I bought a map torch

    Thanks Matt,

    I am a novice at best with both. I did do a pre-apprenticeship about 20 years ago and did welding for a month or so. Used to enjoy using the oxy more than the mig but yes, I used to blow holes in the metal with both haha...
