Default Gas bottle refilling

Does anyone know how to fill the small camping gas 907 cylinders from a
larger bottle, is there an adaptor one can buy or use to "decant" from a
large bottle. Is this a big no no or is it done on a regular basis.
Thanks for any info
Regards

\\\i've known some hooligans that have tried it, well, one, but the
slightest spark and you have a large explosion on your hands and if you are
not a licensed gas retailer (I am informed) such activity is illegal and in
the event of an accident Insurance companies would rub their hands in glee.
It looks expensive energy but it ain't that dear.

Stuart,

I don't know if it's done on a regular basis, but I have *filled*
907's, 904's and 901's from a Calor 15kg bottle. It's done with
propane frequently in the U.S. where adapters are on sale for the
purpose.

There's nothing ready made to do the job in the UK, you have to put
together your own decanting set with the emphasis on safety. I don't
know if the necessary parts are still available here.

I've never tried it, but...

If you know what the normal full pressure of the bottle you're trying
to fill is, and you also know the pressure in the big bottle, then
as long as the full pressure of the smaller bottle is at least equal to
that of the big bottle, no danger.

Except of course if you use a leaky tube to connect them, but that really
wouldn't be a disaster (unless you were stupid enough to try this indoors).
