Ain't ever going to happen :)

Last place I worked at where I did any aluminium welding we had 6 large
argon bottles all manifolded together. Not because there was a high demand
for the gas ( I was the only one using the argon and the required flow rate
as only 20 litres per minute), but because the torch was literally running
all day and we needed the capacity.

No Oz, 45kg "plumbers bottle".

They're about 4 feet tall, hold around 100 litres when you fill them at the
servo, and they're commonly used by roof plumbers.

I thought you'd know all about them, but clearly that ain't the case :)

Not carrying it around in your back pocket.

Clearly you ain't ever welded aluminium either.

What kind of boats did you build again?

Don't worry, we got that.

Um, no Oz.

You don't use liquified Argon for welding, and I thought that would be
obvious to *anyone* who has ever picked up a tig torch.

Clearly, you haven't, or you wouldn't have asked.

What did you use to weld stainless?
