    Burn baby, burn.

    Just knowing the tank is empty of pressurized gas isn't enough to insure to me that it's not going to be flammable.

    Filling it with water back through the valve might not be easy (unless it is one of the old vented tanks), but it would insure that any flammable gases were displaced. If anyone has any other ideas to make drilling or cutting a propane tank safe, do tell.

      Argon will work in place of water as well. Though seeing as how I work in a welding shop...argon is easier for me to come by.

        Couldn't you just unscrew the whole valve assembly? No pressure= No gas.

          I suppose I could do the same thing with carbon dioxide, but I'd rather use that to push beer.

            No pressure = gas at one atmosphere.

            Ever tried to unscrew a valve from a propane tank. Let me know how that goes. I have a friend who is a scrapper and he can't seem to get them out.

            I asked him about it because I have a crap-load of the old style tanks that they won't refill anymore. I thought I'd just change over the valves. They must glue them in when they make the tanks.

              i tried really hard to unscrew the valve on mine. it was pretty much impossible!
              that's why we just cut it off flush at the valve.
              it still left the inside of the valve to rest my tapered bolt on- a good solution all around!

                Just curious how the neighbors like having a tone pole nearby? What is their reaction?

                  they are really friendly, understanding neighbors.
                  i only toss at it during the day, and not everyday at that.

                  we also have three little boys that are constantly tearing around our backyard running a muck too.

                  they're good people.
