    Re: The Welding Cart Thread... Post 'Em Up!!

    I was laughing at the dog pissing comment. Good points on the height, It is low for sure I just liked the compact look. I don't weld as much as you guys so that spool will probably last me a year so I doubt I'll be fidgeting with it too much once I get the settings dialed in. As you can tell I like using the red Harbor freight wheels cant beat $7 for a pneumatic tire. It's done for now until I figure out a handle setup.

    Dave, someday you can buy a Miller cover for your welder, it's a nice looking unit, if it fits your needs that's what important. Have fun but maybe look into getting the cover water proofed.

    Nice drawer and work table, looks like you used the wheels off the welding machine, good idea. A piece of 1/8 plate on top would be nice.

    Thanks, I just use the top for tools. Heavier wheels and I could beat on the top though. Never gave it a thought, thanks. The original idea was just to make the spool gun handy.

    How do you all secure the welder to the cart? Bolts through the bottom of the welder?

    The cart is stainless, a good 14 years old now.

    Here's my cart I made several years ago for my MP210. It's on an old industrial cart and has a fold out welding table extension. It has served me well

    Thanks. In practice it's proven to be a bit too big for my home shop. It works but is sometimes a challenge to squeeze by the lift / vehicle etc.

    Looks great! More pictures of this would be great inspiration. I still haven't built mine yet. *sigh* Need to find the time.

    I came across an interesting "cart" for small inverter welders in this YouTube video:



    It's basically a cylinder cart with a shelf welded near the top to hold the welder above a shorter argon cylinder. Looks pretty slick for places where floor space is at a premium.

    I have been making these really easy and very cost effective welding carts for a while now. I just made one this weekend for my new 200 amp Stic/Tig welder and figure some of you guys might be interested in building one. I have added a picture of my print incase anyone wants the dimensions. This cart can be built from 20ft of 1'' x 1'' x 1/8'' angle, one 12'' x 48'' x 1/8'' plate, and two 4'' casters. The handle and lead hangers are made from bending some 3/8'' rebar.

    Nice carts but I would chose smooth HRS rod instead of the re bar for your handles and electrode holders, or I would slide hose over the re bar cable holders to keep the re bar from chafing your cables and electrode holder. Just to share handle idea's here is how I made mine so they store out of the way when the machines are parked.

    Re: The Welding Cart Thread... Post 'Em Up!!

    Just wanted to give a shout out here.
    typical story, I had to knock out a project in aluminum so I borrowed my buddy's set up. decided I liked it so I sold my ****ty hand-me-down MIG and bought a real TIG machine. Needed some more experience with aluminum so I decided to do put some pieces together and the next thing I knew I was building a cart for my new machine. Spent quite a bit of time on here looking at everyone else's set ups getting some great ideas. I took all the stuff I liked and tried to make one super cart. Here's what I got:

    Under the handle I have an accessories GFCI for plugging in grinders and other power tools. Also, I get so sick of watching my torch bounce around on the ground so I added a torch holder last minute.

    Filler rod holder, argon bottle drop down, and chain. why is it everything looks wonky in photos? I swear it's square... mostly.

    The casters are all drilled, tapped, and bolted onto the cart, which I'm really glad I took the time to do because they turned out super solid.

    The back side has four 5' tall hooks for leads, which makes wrapping up a 25' tip handle super easy. it also keeps my leads for my TIG and my cutter separate.

    I'm sure you all noticed the circuit breaker box in the bottom of the cart. I happened upon a free 50' 240v 50amp NEMA 14-50 power cord through no mischievous wrong-doing on my part... I swear! so I decided to wire the cart up for it's on power supply. the cart plugs in the wall in my shop. and has 2 50 amp NEMA 6-50 plugs on it for my TIG and cutter, which are always plugged in. each on their own separate circuit in the cart. The accessories outlet on the front is also on a 30 amp circuit. so when you plug the cart in everything has power and is good to go. the cart itself can only draw 50amps @240 so you can't run both machines at the same time, but i'm never going to do that anyway as I only have two hands. it's just nice to not have to unplug/plug/replug **** in all the time. here's a look at the power cable hanging on the back. it's great because the cable is so long I can plug it in the the one outlet I have access to and use my welder anywhere in my shop.

    I also plumbed a air hose quick connect fitting on the front of the cart under the handle for the plasma cutter so all you have to do is walk up and hook an air hose to the front and it's ready to cut. but I don't have any pictures of it. I'll add some tomorrow if I get around to it.

    Thanks again for all the ideas I got from on here. let me know what you guys think!
    also, please don't judge my welds too badly, this is only the second TIG project I've done. lol. still getting the hang of the whole two-handed thing.

    Re: The Welding Cart Thread... Post 'Em Up!!

    Part #1 of 2......Haven't posted here for a while, since I've recently moved to Africa, and it took a few months for our stuff to get shipped here. I shipped over my mig / stick / lift tig welder and lots of flux core wire and various rods. I didn't know what would be available here, as it turns out you can get pretty much all the welding supplies here. (Kitwe, Zambia). So I needed to fab up a welding cart, choosing larger casters for rougher terrain, and a wider cart to hold my tools / supplies all in one place.
    The steel is very cheap here and I made all the cuts with a little hf 4-1/2" hand grinder with cut-off wheels.
    Since I didn't know if I could get gas here, I built the cart for flux core only. If I find a convenient source for gas, I will add a tank mount to the cart.
    It was a fun first project here in Zambia, and the welder will get a LOT of use here. Many things to be fixed! I have a Zambian friend that is helping me while I teach him some fabrication skills.

    Noticed the converter and plugs, what's the standard line voltage there? 230/240V?

    Silver paint turned out well, looks good. Never used that on a project, I'm boring and prefer plaim old black or blue lol.

    Great looking little cart! Be careful with pneumatics around welding. Its pretty easy to burn a hole in a tire and get a blow out, although it wont cause much harm on that low ride cart if you use those tires on something with weight that is a bit tall, you could get into some danger. Experience unfortunately speaking here, so we dont use pneumatic tires for anything anymore other than road vehicles.
