Default Re: Old dog learns new trick...Welding!

Is the flow meter or pressure regulator welder model specific? I see that Hoart sells one for the 125 Handler, but will a different regulator work as long as it is for this purpose of supplying gas to a wire feed welder? I believe that Steve mentioned Harbor Freight carrying them. Is a used one a possibility?
Your suggestion of renting or leasing a tank sounds like a good one. If I did own one, how long before the tank has to e re certified, inspected or whatever it is so that it can be filled. Again, a used one with pressure regulator might appear in my life by chance, in which case if I got it cheap enough maybe it would make sense owning my own tank, especially if in the summer I am in Minnesota and in the winter Maryland. Just thinking.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
