    I am glad that my post and market research has affirmed that you are all on the best price plans for your welding.

    All the volumes are up there in M^3 un the CuM column, which I then multiplied by the refill cost to give cost per m^3.

    Is the deposit actually relevant? I guess you all plan on giving up welding as you are old, I hope I will be for a few years to come

    I personally (this week) am happy with BOC. I didn't say BOC were cheap, I was just surprised that they were remotely competitive.


    Elroy - the 2nd table (not graph) is the next columns on the first table (not graph), based on using 3x 1.34 hobbyweld bottles (about what I use a year as a hobbyist)

    I dont care what im labelled as, makes no odds to me, its you who took offence to the word when it wasnt even directed at you! Just because I solder some pipes to together that doesnt make me plumber, or sawing some wood doesnt make me a carpenter!

    BOC will depend on your supplier, when I had an account they were very strict on who had a bottle, and charged for both collection & delivery on top of their base prices, but that may have changed as they never did a hobby offer!

    Non rental deposits are not ongoing and are refundable. Rental is reoccurring whether you use the gas or not. So if you dont do any welding for a year or two you will still be paying a rental on something you do not use.

    I used to sit with my customers when I was stocking Adams. Most of which were garages/workshops and Adams worked out cheaper 9 times out of 10 compared to BOC or Air Liquide.

    A factor for you will also be how close they are t you, and whether they deliver and if they actually stock the product you need
