Yeah, it's actually a good call saying lifting the cylinder by the cap is a big no-no. My buddy at work who used to be a welding instructor told me the very same thing today.
Thanks for the heads-up! I would like to see my kids grow up.
And now I and others know.
Now I need to fab something with a lifting eye that the cylinder can sit atop and strap to. Time to roll out the MIG.
