Does anyone use a lower cost supplier of welding gases compared to having a contract with BOC?

Thanks Dave, looks like Hobbyweld is the way to go for me. I gave up my oxy-acetylene contract a couple of years ago as for my limited use the cost was prohibitive. Still have BOC Argoshield but will change when the contract is due for renewal. Oxy-acetylene I would like to have again as I find it useful when making repair sections, etc.

Me too....used to have an energas contract....but my welding activities can be hit 'n miss...didn't see the point in paying out every quarter...so cancelled.
Will now get hobbyweld [mig gas] when I actually need it..local stockist [well, local in my terms,even if 15 miles away!]

Has anybody tried out one of those small, compact, cheeeeep, inverters?
