your only hope is to find a scuba shop or fire station that has some tanks for sale or out of hydro. We use SCBA tanks from a fire station that hold 4500 psi. You then need to get a nipple from the SCBA setup and put in a three way so you can have a fill nipple and a bleed off. The local fire station fills them for us each week, and I just bribe them with a free pound of coffee.

good luck. And filling HPA tanks really has nothing to do with HVAC, so I doubt he could help out much other then threading together the fill adapter.

A HVAC guy probably wont have the parts, trust me. You need a 3-5kpsi air source with an on/off valve on it, something to connect to the air source, a QD for the tanks fill nipple, and a bleed off valve. A scuba tank works great for this and you can buy a paintball fill station that fits a scuba tank for $40.

AIR SOURCE W/ ON/OFF>TEE>HOSE WITH QD>TANK TO BE FILLED

..........................BLEED OFF VALVE
