    Thanks for all the replies, everybuddy. I sure don't need another air tank, I rarely use the store bought one I have, I usually use the nitrogen for emergencies or the many air compressors laying around.

    Speaking of air compressors, I converted a belt driven, ultra low temp compressor into a decent air unit. Works good, nice and quiet, I painted my truck with it. Changed out the oil, piped to old air tank.

    I have done a lot of the ox/acet welding with the flux rods with good results and the old arc welder comes in handy for the thick stuff and usually turns out ugly. Not much experience with the MIG though, been wanting one for a long time.

    Definitely like the grill ideas, I was thinking of a 2 part smoker type deal too. My neighbor is a wind chime nut, says we can cut them to various sizes and see what happens, I'm skeptical after the beer bottle cutting experiment didn't work so well....

    I had a boss , he made "oil day tanks" out of them for use in industrial bldgs. Probably close to 50 bldgs. Boy oh boy did he get mad at me ,as, I refused to install them.

    joejax, I like that diagram!! But,these "day tanks" were up by the 20'ceiling, and they fed oil into 6 or so hanging oiled fired furnaces. There was an oil transfer pump at ground level that fed the "day tank" and a "over flow" return line from the ceiling mounted freon tanks. And the yo-yo boss was using 15% sil-phos to braze a brass MPT x MSAE fitting into the steel tank which according to AllState and Harris ,that makes a "brittle" joint.

    2 1/2" emt, some sheet metal cut in circle for end. I welded from inside and sanded smooth the outside edges. Used a punch to make the dimples.

    One I made for outside has been out for three yrs, plus. has faded, but very little rust since was careful not to have gaps water could get into. The auto primer likely helped,too.
