Both are hypoxic - neither of them will support life. Both require adequate ventilation...

I'm not entirely convinced by the claim that welding gases are less contaminated than the air (or nitrox, or O2) in my dive cylinders; it's commonly accepted in the UK at least that welding O2 isn't a good solution.

However, very little of that has anything to do with running an airgraver off it, and all the theory is good

I would steer well clear of using O2 on it however - pure O2 is very, very dangerous if you don't know what you're doing with it; the stuff will support combustion in the strangest ways. Drop wire wool into O2 and it'll go up without any obvious ignition source.
