Dont use a Freon tank for Onboard Air!

Somebody asked about using a freon tank for air a while back, I talked to my brother(HVAC man) about it- he says its a really bad idea- theres no bleed off valve, and those things can have a perfect looking exterior, while the inside has moisture build up from condensation, and the metal could be close to paper thin. Its not a really thick tank to start with. On the other hand, if you have a reclaim(for capturing used freon) tank, it is much thicker and would probably work. Just to let you know a HVAC mans 2 cents.
