Slightly off topic, i was also home schooled. Take advantage of the flexibility and graduate early. I was able to graduate at 16, while my younger brother graduated at 15 and is now enrolled in college, for his second year. his 18th b-day is this month.

Enough home school ranting.

Ebay is a great resource. just watch for deals, and dont buy on impulse.

This is OT as well, just adding another vote for home schooling, I've got no ambitions to go to uni, but I'm now in tertiary education. I got in at 15 as well.

It also meant I could study more on the subjects I'm good at (most sciences) and less so on subjects I've no intention of using (music and artistic pursuits).

Back on topic, I'm going to try a cylinder testing place in town, they sell them for scrap so I don't think they'd mind me paying double scrap price. They have 6000psi N<sub>2</sub> tanks there, the tanks haven't passed inspection but they'll suffice for my uses..
