Place the information on the Oxygen tank and cover with clear tape. That way it will be handy when you need it for reference.




You need to consider adding comments after-the-fact to some of the items. For example Joyce suggests taping Victor's cutting guide to the oxygen tank. A good idea until you exchange tanks. However, if you transfer the guide onto a flat "refrigerator magnet", you can transfer the material from tank to tank. You can buy vinyl covered magnetic sheets at Lowe's (and presumably other similar stores). They are sold cover up hot/cold air registers that don't have internal dampers. A pair of 9" x 18" magnets cost me $5 or $6 the last time I got them. 3M's Super 77 spray adhesive works well if you want to paste onto the surface. Magnets can be easily cut to size with a pair is scissors. I have charts and tables "pasted" everywhere. Drill press speeds, welding rod spec's, lathe pulley speeds, resistor colors, etc. One note, if you are putting a paper label onto a magnet to be curved around a tank, do the lamination on the curved tank itself.
