If you are comfortable to be in the presence of a cylinder that is holding that sort of pressure that Billy Bodgit has butchered in his garden shed, and that no-one knows sod all about then fine, BUT you cannot make that decision for everyone else or accept that that risk is acceptable on their behalf! All I have called for is good engineering practice, nothing that is difficult for the vast majority of good engineers carrying out this work.
It's nothing personal, this whole thread is bollocks, it's a problem that doesn't exist, if there was genuine concern about things going bang it would have shown by now. I just quoted your post as it was on the last page, that's all.
