There's a gas tank market 'Helium' in the Noisebridge shop along the East
wall.  I don't know how full it is, but I think that Andy was using it for
UAV projects, therefore he may know more info about it such as where the
regulator is.

Airgas SF  (there's one in Berkeley, check www.airgas.com for other
locations)
1495 Illinois Street, SF CA 94107
415-648-9353
'Branch location and Fill plant'

Any other supply stores to know about?
Scales, guages... rangefinder, payload supplies, ballast and ropes...
