Propane tanks, and meters

Unread postAuthor: Spitfire » Wed Mar 05, 2008 11:46 am

Last week i built a propane meter for my combustion.

Here it is with my chamber ( The meter has been shortend since)

I then go looking for a propane tank, and cant find one apparently they dont have them here in south africa, one that looks like a paintball guns tank anyway.
1) Does anyone know of a place that distributes those type of propane tanks to, or in south africa?

2) I then remembered that i have a little tank at home

How can i fit that tank to my gun without it looking stupid?

3) Or can i use a old CO2 tank and just get it filled with propane?
