Reminds me...from last week. Had to get a rush job finished. Dang! Almost out of gas but maybe....I'd have enough. well you know how that goes. Friday afternoon...gotta rush down to the welding supply store to get gas. In a hurry...they load the gas...it was even the store manager.
whip home, unload and hook up the ugly heavy bottle.
Start welding...crap! The wire burnt back into the tip and the wire birdnested.
Fix it all up...does the same thing. Fix that...check everything over...put on a new tip. Start welding...crap...it's welding weird...burns back yet again!
Now I'm mad...tear feeder apart and check everything. Blew out the whip...put everything back...does it AGAIN!!!!
What has changed? The gas is the only new thing. I look on the bottle...
I was in such a hurry I never noticed the slightly different color of the beat up bottle.
GREAT! It's way past the stores closing time and I don't have any gas for the weekend.
Yup...they heard about it on Monday. Good thing I couldn't remember the managers last name or he'd of been down there on Saturday morning getting me the right gas.
Moral of the story...always check the bottles before you go home!
