    Some times you can get lucky and get them from scrap yards, but it is apparently illegal to sell them.

    Because the big cylinders are the property of people like afrox. Just my experience from when I was looking for a argon cylinder.

    Try your local welding supplier - perhaps they can help. As far as I know, though, the gas supply companies will only rent out cylinders, and will only refill cylinders belonging to them, so even if you do get to buy a cylinder you will still battle to get the O2... hope I'm wrong, though...

    Hennie is right. You can get one at Afrox. If you do not come right, pm me as I went to the Hospital this morning (My oldest have Menungitus (Spelling)) and I saw one in the Lift for emergencies- I did think of you when I saw it- I can always bring it home and send it to you :whistling:

    What is the difference between a CO2 and an Oxygen bottle ?

    Can't you replace the CO2 with O2 ?
