where to buy new aluminum lp tanks..

I just got back from a trip this weekend and I need to replace both of my 40 lb. original aluminum propane tanks..uh, well....don't ask!
I seem to remember seeing some discussion of places to buy them on these forums, but I just can't seem to search them out for some reason...
Any leads?
Thanks...(or would that be...forgive me...."tanks"
JG

John,

Here is the link to the thread where this was just discussed. Let me know how you make out, as I need to replace mine as well.

Replace LP tanks?

If the reason for replacing the tanks is to get the new OPD valves, you may not need to purchase new tanks. On a recent trip to Wisconsin, I was able to get my two original (1971) seven gallon tanks recertified, new valves, and filled for about half the cost of one new tank.

The recertification is good for five years, but that seemed like a reasonable trade-off. I keep the original tanks and maintain the esthetics of the rig and it cost far less.
