    Do you guys hand paint or spray paint this stuff? Whenever I spray paint metal with any gloss spray it NEVER hardens and comes out like crap. This is with following directions to a T and using self etching primer.

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

    i could'nt make up my mind on a cart type to build for my old hobart. So i just painted a Harbor Fagget cart white and pinstriped it to match. Not as satisfying as building one yet sold for more than i paid for it new.

    I built this one several years ago to hold my mm172. Only thing I had to pay for was the chain and paint

    Wow!! There are a lot of great welding cart pics. Here is a pic of mine.

    Attachment 739181

    Here are more pics I took while I was putting it together. It has two errors. The MIG should be on top so I can open the door without pulling it forward. And I am very unhappy with the Everlast 210EXT.

    If you are shooting automotive paints with a gun, there is a hardener that you have to purchase separately from the paint that you mix in. Be sure to ask where you buy your paint. If you are using some of the cheaper rust coating type paints (Tremclad, Rustoleum) I've seen instances where they don't seem to harden very well. Often if it's a smaller project, I'll get lazy and just use spray bombs and I haven't had any problems with curing. Make sure you are leaving proper dry times between primer and paint, and some tack time between coats.

    I redid the cart for my 180 SD, it's just been painted. The first wheels I used were rubber but over time they developed flat spots so I rolled steel wheels for it.

    Nice idea on the steel wheels but instead of rolling I would just cut two rings off an 8" pipe.

    +1 on using hardener. I used it with Rustoleum quart cans and it works great - makes the paint darned durable.

    Retired the AC buzz box in favor of an AC/DC stick/TIG combo. Had to add to the back of my cart to carry tank and extra depth of new box and argon cylinder. Safety gear, manuals, consumables in drawers above. Still need to figure out a spot for filler rod storage.

    What brand of hardener did you use with Rustoleum? Be careful mixing brands and types of paint...they don't always get along.

    If you look around the threads and lid of any USED can of automotive hardner/activator, you will see this hard clear dried super glue like glass all around it. You actually cut your fingers sometimes unscrewing the lid... Just less than a little cap full for a pint will help considerably on other off brand paints, don't do more than that or you will get some coagulation and weird reactions fuked up paint. Also, with Rustoleum and other spray enamels, its about a two coat maximum per 24 hours and that sh;t is surprisingly strong.....overdoing it, sandwiches the inner layers and never dries

    I don't see how that's fair going and making your own when you could buy one at the harbor freight? ... Oh. Sort of answered my own question.

    the casters are going to come in handy, that table looks heavy.

    Yeah Robert,I thought about buying one, but I had all of the materials taking up space in my garage.
    Doc, it's a little on the heavy side but not too bad.

    Nice table. I will need to make something similar for my garage. I will want it nice and heavy, but still compact and mobile.
    How do you like it?

    Are those spring loaded locking pins? I had originally envisioned a heavy table for my bench grinder and Anvil on grippy feet that has kick-down wheels that lock in place to move around.

    I like your table for welding/misc. though. Maybe a latch/ hook system to hang on the wall as well.
