I wonder what the flow rate of pure co2 would have to be set to and how many arc hours one would need to weld to even SPEND $1000 a year on gas - let alone save it...
The small ID crap they're pushing ain't new (that's been around for as long as I've known about welding forums). Simple truth of the matter is that hose does nothing to conserve any used gas. The stuff that gets wasted is whatever's left in the whip after you're done for the day. Between the tank and the machine is still trapped unless you unplug it, and I don't know too many people who have the desire or need to do that unless the tank is empty or they're switching mixes.
I'd save a lot more by not buying that stupid hose. What they want for one is what a 125cf of c25 runs me.

Gollleeee, I'm impressed!
Up till now I just been letting weeds and trees grow around the property to contend with all that wasted Co2. The ones near the shop seem to be takin real well to the enhanced Co2 atmousphere as well. Now, maybe if Sue was a little better lookin and came along with the hose to install it, I might get interested, BUT frankly, Sue don't meet my standards of acceptability.
There is a new "welding site" sponsored by the Rosie ODonnel School of Applied Lesbo Physics where a bunch of industrial welding machine operators gather to pretend they are weldors, and they'd probably be real interested in this. Seems most of them went to college and learned all sorts of important welding terms, like TIG Torch and Welding Bench. They also learned to report to their work station and hope a friggin monkey or robot doesn't replace them next year, and pray some Mexican or Chinaman doesn't want their job. Might be you should post there, but they probably don't know you can MIG steel with Co2.
You do have to admit the vendor is right up there with Eaton Compressor in internet marketing skills though. Might be Jack's old sandblaster expert designed the site for them.

Magnificent product Jackson. Now if only you were closer I could let you help experiment with the new improved super sandblaster/ cabinet model.
I tell ya Jack, well, actually, I can't tell ya cause if I told ya I'd have to shoot ya.
This thing is magnificent. Employs minimum abrasive so you don't have to deal with a large amount of contaminated wore out abrasive. Less abrasive cost too Jack.
Switching out 10 # of abrasive when you want to switch from Black Beauty to something like walnut shell or corncob is also a walk in the park. Only 10# to swap instead of a hundred.
Not only that, you shoot something and evaluate the media before you reuse it, and there is no more crap flowing back thru the gun. If the abrasive is dirty, you can either sift it or dump it. Dumping is also no longer a chore, just blow it into a colth sack and dispose of it, minimal dust too.
AND, I've cut compressed air use in half. No more wasting compressed air lifting the abrasive to the gun Jack, think of the savings on the electric bill.
Not like I'm any big so called inventor, I just took a handfull of concepts and incorporated all of them all into one unit. The prototype has been tested, now all I gotta do is nail the final unit together. Hell, I might even sellthe plans on ePay like that BurQueer fellow did. I figure if a fool like him can make a damn fortune all I need is a bigtitted broad and this thing is worth a million bucks.

Franz,Thats the first thing i have to fab is a cabinet,I have some good size pcs of SS left over from the move!, I sift mine now,and works well,and when its to worn,I need so much fill everyplace,its no problem,!
I like saving money!!,Im only running 8-12 PSI ,I havent heard from Rob latly,,last i knew he had over 1500 members in his site,,as for Rob being a Millionare,,I dont think thats the case! Unless hes got one big tin can in the back yard burried!????????
I would put you down as a inventer,I dont know why you dont patent a few of your things!!!!!And then you sit back and count your millions! :D,,PS,Please shoot me in my back! :lol:

Patents ain't worth diddle Jack unless you have time and money to enforce them with. You ought to know that better than anyone. How many did your dad have, and how much did he make off them.
Ol Bullshyt Rob must have made a ton sellin them "blasters" given his record on ePay and some of the buys he was makin last I looked at his scorecard. Then again he could have just taken up a new carear on ePay bein a shill for somebody.
Save the SS, make the cabinet out of plywood and line it with rubber. You'll save a lot of sand and dust.

Good Idea,And i have so much Koraseal left over!,,Its a flexable pvc,the stuff we use for the chome plating tanks,,And the states have come down hard on these old plating shops,,,that they have to be in compliance,before they can start up,Those fume scrubers aint cheap!! :o :o

EPA jerkoffs are spending taxpayer money by the truckload here at the old shipyard to clean up the residue of a bumper reconditioning shop. You know how those places were always famous for their environmental concerns. I remember when they used to blow the tanks out into a field thru 100 feet of plastic pipe.
The government idiots are spending tax dollars to clean this one up because they are too smart to look up the bumper shop was there 20 years after the place was a shipyard for WW-II. All them college boys are real sure there was a lot of plating done on ship hulls and later on aircraft frames. They are so smart they won't even listen.
Plastic lined will probably be good. I use rubber because I still have it left from the rolls of free stuff I hauled out of a gasket shop auction. Most of the media generally flys past the target, so you might as well salvage it rather than blow it against a steel wall and fracture it.
