I hadn't been able to weld in awhile due to family obligations and whatnot (and a certain amount laziness in all honesty).... I went out to fire up the welders and found that both my mig mix tank and my argon tank were empty.... The last welding I did was mig and I thought that maybe I had left the tank open on accident.
But the argon tank was new! I did leave the flow meter/regulators attached. Is it possible that they are leaking from there? Do I need to disconnect the regulators between uses (it can be weeks or more between uses)?
Hi Sparkweld, I'm normally consistant in shutting my gas bottles off at work each day. Once in a while I forget and find I've lost a small amount overnight. So it is a good idea to shut them off AT the bottle after you are finished for the day.
