I agree.  That's about what I paid for my tank also here in Va.  I
pay $17.60 for a refill.  Would like to get a 2nd tank so if I run
out of gas on the weekend, I'm not out of luck until Monday.  None
of our welding suppliers are open on Sat.

  Where did you get you Auto Darkening shade for you helmet?  I've 
called around here and the start at about $180.  I'd sure like to
get on though.

  One other note.  I'm near seighted and now wear bifocals.  My
glasses are also photo-gray.  Don't know what the real reason is,
but when I try to weld, it is very difficult for me to see what
I'm welding.  A couple of weeks ago I got mad at something I was
trying to weld as I kept missing it.  Had a couple of nice beads 
going no place.  So after several failed attempts, I took off my
glasses.  It made a big difference, I could actually see better
through the face mask without the glasses!
