uses for an old thermo tank

so no pics, unfortuantely my camera is at the studio where I am working and I wont be able to get to it until tuesday...

but yeah, I have an old thermo tank that I received with a project kp I recently got. what can I do with it? the valve obviously cant be filled with today's standard equipment so can I replace it with a regular co2 tank pin valve?

also, will it fall under the 2inch rule? here is what is stamped on it:

DOT - E7737 - 1800
CLIFF DIV
10 - 87
ALUMINUM ALLOY

any other uses?

Drill a hole in it, all it is good for is display and recycling.

What size tank is it? If its a 7 or 10 oz tank.... Just swap out the valves for a modern one and keep on using it. 7's and 10's fall under the 2 inch rule.

you can still get them filled - gotta drop a flat washer in when screwing it onto the manifold to make the seal

You are the only one that can determine this. Measure it.

As stated already, just measure the tank to see if it will pass the 2" rule. Most 3.5s, 7s, 9s and 10s would all pass. The valve can either be replaced with a new pin valve for about $15 or as stated the old valve can be filled by dropping a flat CO2 washer in the bottom of most new fill station ends. The Thermo valve uses standard CO2 threads just like on the large tanks. Of course most kids these days have never seen one of these valves and may be unlikely to be willing to fill a tank with a "wrong" type of valve.
I would be inclined to find someone willing to fill it and keep it with the gun, it adds to the old school look.
