let's say you bought a bottle/cylinders set from northern tools standard 150s you get them filled at Airgas... cool no problem.

So you take them back to fill again and they just simply swap them out... Now, you have Airgas bottles. Now you need another fill, and you decide their price is too high "to fill" and you go over to AOC... they will just simply swap them out again with one of theirs... No worries.

And when a place like Airgas and AOC start to have a few too many of the "others" cylinders they just swap them back out with each other their selves.

It only really matters, when the cylinders that are strict, leased cylinders...

Hope this help...

Randell, it really sounds like they work very differently in your neck of the woods. It does not work that nice up here, unless you know the guys pretty well at the place.

Maybe it’s because my town isn’t necessarily a small town, and definitely not a big city ( population about 10-15,000, depending on the vacationers in town that season),
