Welding Cylinder Exchange at Home Depot

Thought this might be of interest to the group. Today, I saw a
cylinder exchange cabinent (similar to propane) in front of Home Depot
in Irving, Texas (near Fry's electronics). Instead of propane, it had
argon,co2,nitrogen,acetlyene,oxygen, and trimix. I didn't see the
prices, but it looks like they have everything from a 15 cuf to 80 cuf.
Any other Home Depot's have this?

I've seen the same thing at the McKinney and Sherman HDs. Tractor Supply also does cylinder exchange. I didn't look at prices since I deal with Airgas and they are just as close to me.

Northern Tool & Equipment and Tractor Supply stores handle Oxy, Acet and C25 in the Charlotte, NC area. Tractor Supply is cheaper and they'll take any other company's cylinder on trade as long as it's the right size.
They're both CONSIDERABLY cheaper and nicer to deal with than my local Holox dealer.

Particularly in the San Francisco Bay Area, too?
I called HD corporate just now 800-430-3376. The nice lady there stated that she didn't know anything about it. None of my local stores appear to have anything other than propane available.
Uno data point.

I don't know if they do here in Iowa, but most wholesalers can not beat either Home Depot or Menards in price. I can buy wire and other supplies cheaper from them, than with wholesalers. One of them told me that they (Home Depot) is selling some things cheaper than they can buy from distributers. B.G.

Northern Tool & Equipment has a similar package in Raleigh, NC. Prices looked a bit high compared to some of the gas distributors, but for the small operator who might need it on the weekend.....
Couldn't find it on

How do these places handle date codes on your old cylinder? Will they take an outdated test code cylinder?

I *think* this is the same company the Raleigh, NC, Northern Tool store uses.

I know this doesn't answer your question, but you might be interested in it.

"Customer acknowledges ownership of trade-in cylinder to participate in exchange. Leased or rented cylinders are not to be accepted. Only Customer Owned Cylinders exchanged."
Now, to your question. You can call 1-877-GAS PONY (1-877-427-7669) between 8-5 Eastern Time and get the answer.

Last night I went to our local Tractor Supply Store (Clemmons, NC) and exchanged my 80 cf oyegen cylinder for a full 125 cf cylinder. They charged me for the gas to fill my 80 and then the difference in price between the 80 and 125 tank puchase (full) The breakdown was 14.73 for the gas and 24.83 for the tank upgrade and tax (of course)
To exchange my new tank (125) for a full one will cost me 15.83 My 75 cf acetylene cylinder will cost me 22.56 to exchange
I also have a 40 cf sheilding gas cylinder (75 / 25) that will cost 14.48
I don't know how these prices compares to the local welding supply house.
