    Got a co2 tank from a vending machine. It's fairly small. Can I convert this to a portable air/co2tank for the trails? Is it worth it? What kind of cost involved?
    25 for a visual/pressure inspection
    60 for regulater
    15 for hose and fittings
    ?? to fill it

    This sound about right?

    $40.00 for the regulator. And my 20pd tank cost $14.98 to fill up.. Yes it is worth it.. Check out the prices on power tanks...

    Not sure how many pound tank mine is- I'll see if I can find a stamp on it somewhere. It stands about 2' tall with the knob and about maybe 8" in diameter. Is there a particular kind of regulator I should look for- ie- up to a certain psi or anything? Do you fill yours with co2 or just air? I've been told to get real results out of it I'd have to use co2. Any idea how many 35" tires one fill up could handle?

    I have about fiteen of these tanks if any one is interested.

    I don't know if they can be shipped. Any one KNOW if they can be shipped. I got these froma local pepsi guy at our school. They never wanted them back. We make Bells out them and sell them to people that would like a good aluminum bell.

    Sorry I didn't mean to HiJack your Post.

    Thanks. I know they are picky what is shipped. What is one worth? I might need some extra cash for my blazer.
