This isn’t rocket science, people!
I just called the welding supply shop that we got ALL of the equipment from (except the HH)…the brand spanking new tank, the brand spanking new hoses and proper fittings that were required to run the torch and spoke with THE owner…who has been in business for 40 years now. They are the best known and most respected welding supply here in the Tampa area. I told him the size of our shop/warehouse, the size of the office box, the size of the exhaust fan in the warehouse and in the office. He knows what torch is being used and what size tank and lines are running.
According to him (and I *think* that he might know what he’s talking about), it is NOT illegal [to keep propane inside]. They are used every day in many shops for all kinds of applications. He said the only time he’s seen any ‘rules’ about using one is in the situation of a jeweler in a mall or retail shop. And as for the insurance thing, he said that would be like telling someone they could not use their gas barbecue….that if something happened they would not cover it. Myth busted…..
