Sounds as if to get my feet wet I go with the 125 size bottle leased and keep an eye out for purchases that my LWS will exchange.
All in all it sounds as this is the introductory point of developing a relationship with my LWS start with a lease and developed the relationship from there.
good point about developing a relationship, I would bet money the LWS I deal with wouldn't swap out the O&A bottles for C25 or argon bottles for someone off the street but I do almost all of my business with them even if it costs a few dollars more and it pays off, several times I have been there to buy a dinse connector or some other item and the manager would just give it to me because he was out of single packs and had to break a pair or whatever the case may have been.
the heck with the duty cycle on the welder, tell me about the duty cycle on that grinder !!
