Yes, Robert's Oxygen in Merrifield or any of their other stores should be able to support your needs.

I get CO tanks swapped out at Merrifield all the time.

You might want to call ahead to make sure they have the size and gas mix on hand, but they are usually pretty well stocked in Merrifield. They are about 1 block from the Target, near the old Media General/Cox satellite dish.

Really? If you're such a fucking expert, why don't you know where to go?

This thread is nothing more than a troll post to advertise Robert's.

You're a fucking loser.

Roberts yes and the place in Newington.. Roberts?? .You do know you can use CO2 for most mig welding, good weld and cheaper. Plenty of places in Prince William too.. Probably named Roberts. I get my 75/25 from Airgas in Stafford Co. near Falmouth across from Earls Hardware and Mc Ds down here in Gods Country..Where 4 br houses with 3 baths a nice yard 2 car garage cost 210 K. There are other Airgas places around.

Do they make Yellow Page books anymore?? Just wondering??

Mine are basic , Lincoln 220 Volt MIG 180 and 110 volt MIG 100 .Bought Em from Lowes/HD 400 $ and 700 $ And they work great for what I do . The 220 V uses gas and I run the 75/25, works great up to 5/16 thick steel , the 120 V no gas just shielded .35 wire. for sticking things together.

Robert's is a rip off. They are at least 30% more expensive than anywhere else.

i might switch to stick welding getting tire of wire welders. always get stuck playing with spools (time). always seem to need the advantages of stick.

should i sell it and switch ?

is having a fed spool really and advantage ? sure with stick you have to move the ground around on the stick - but does having a feeder really count when you need a welder that can do "the widest possible" number of weldign applications ?

oxygen great: too damn expensive though. fine if boss pays for it. otherwise it's many times more expensive than wire-welders

one of the big advantages of oxy is fast cutting

but good metal cutting tools (wheels, saws) are the stuff of home depot these days - oxy cutting looses "price edge" that way to some extent

Mig welding is far superior for thinner metals and has no slag to deal with. Additionally you can make longer continuous weld as needed. Mig welding can be easier for beginners and it is easier to hold an arc.

Stick welding tends to be better for thicker metal and does require the slag to be chipped off. Additionally stick welding puts out flux fumes.
