K well think what you want and argue all you want. I've said my piece and every organization governing welding and quite a few people here agree with me. Knock yourself out with the examples!

Building non back purged manifolds are a thing of the past. But I can say I have 2 Ramhorns with 40k+ miles still holding up wonderfully from almost 6 years ago.

Back-purging isn't important all the time. (when welding your own parts or to help a non paying friend)
As long as you can live with the way you welded it.

If its for someone else, even if they request it to be non back purged. Remember that when that Manifold is in the hands of its 2nd, 3rd or 4th owner. They may assume that "all" of your manifolds are done this way and judge you on a product that doesn't fully represent you and your business/hobby.

so if i run ~5 cfm, i should be good? now what size bottles are you guys using,
using different bottles or have another (inexpensive) way than buying a regulator that has 2 gauges and adjustments....

Dual flowmeter regulator on a 150 cf bottle. HTP sells this regulator on ebay for a little over $100.

If you already have a regulator you could just get one of these and another regulator:
Argon Inert Gas Y Adapter Connect 2 Regulators to 1 Bottle Western T 92 C 2580 | eBay

Cheaper than buying a dual flowmeter.

As dead as this section is anymore, you almost can't post without bumping something from the grave.
