    looks like it'll protect the lead pretty good. Name:  thumb.gif

    I used the same stuff on my smaller plasma years ago and it’s held up well.

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

    Does anyone have a picture of a 2 wheeled welding cart? I have the rear inflatable wheels and axle from my old miller bobcat and I'm wanting to make some type of 2 wheeled counterbalance cart for my Hobart Handler 140. That way it would be easier to push over the ground if I have to travel with it to do a job. Thanks for any help or advice.

    It's at the lake so I don't have access right now, but I built one for my 140 pound stick welder. I used a 2 wheeler and added 2 swivel casters to the front end. It can be taken over rough ground and it easy to maneuver on concrete.

    Here’s the wheel kit I made for my Forney transformer welder. It can be tipped back on the larger rear wheels on rough terrain or maneuvered easily using the casters on shop floors.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm thinking about just having the 2 wheels and a welded on handle to where I can move it around kinda like a hand cart. But with an added shelf underneath along with a half cut pipe to mount my tank in.

    I found this Kennedy box for a good price on Craigslist.

    I knew just what to do with it.

    This is very nice! The gussets are my least favorite though.

    Looks good flat bastard. Where is the handle to move the cart around?

    I didn't want to use gussets but the angle is only .125 wall, and I was afraid it was going to be flexy. So I tried to make them simple, yet elegant-ish.

    Any suggestions for better looking gussets on the next project?

    Just a few suggestions, you can even buy some of these on Amazon.

    While it's fresh...




    Got one to build from scratch for the MIG, but I barely use the thing so it doesn't get any love.

    I like those ones from Amazon. Shouldn’t be too hard to duplicate although prolly cheaper to buy.

    Here’s a few of my gussets I made for my carts

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

    You know what. For anyone running a plasma table with a lot of scrap from your cutting projects “ahem cough cough turbo cobra” you could or should look into nesting some gussets like those into the waisted material on all of your cutting projects to help reduce scrap and increase profits. I can imagine that would be one way to keep the cost of those gussets down for customers while being able to stock up and supply a good amount for future orders. Never mind me, I’m just thinking out loud.

    That’s a great idea

    You could also dress the gusset up a bit to look like spider webs. A quick google search shows them from $5-25 or so.

    Yeah it was kinda hidden.

    You can see about 3/8ths of the end of the handle in one of the pics.

    Also, that is a great idea about cutting gussets from material that would be scrap. If I had a plasma torch, air compressor, and plasma table, I would definitely put this nugget to use. But since I don't, I am relegated to cutting out the pleb level gussets you see here, on an as needed basis.

    Nothing wrong with your gussets - not works of art but plenty functional. Question for you, since I have a similar tool chest and thinking of stealing some of your ideas. You show two configurations - one with wheels under the tanks, and one with the wheels inboard under the chest. I'm guessing you ended up using the wheels outboard under the gas?
