    Easier to roll backwards while still sitting. Just watch your step when you get up, right?

    Here's what my helper and I put together to hold my Miller Dynasty 200DX tig, Hypertherm 45XP and Miller 211 mig. Used a Kennedy base cabinet for general storage, fabricated the cart from steel, and the cable hangars and top from aluminum. Tig wire storage is made from aluminum angle. Machines all plug into a box with a 50' cord. Wheels are ball bearing.

    Heres how I wired my two TAs so that only one cord was plugged in for power.

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

    This is a test fitup before all the final touches where put on (gun holder, cable holders, tank straps etc). The design was largely influenced by super cheap 14ga 1x2 tube and 1/8" 1 1/2" angles at my local steel supply. Buying drops for the sheet and diamond plate all the materiel including the paint and wheels/casters came in at about $100. The black is spray bed liner

    I had experimented with offsets and angles for a little while and this setup works well for me both sitting on a super low stool and standing. Everything is readable and reachable.

    Between the wire feed and the power supply is a shelf for supplies. Its just 2 1 1/2 angles making a C- there's a backing inside it to keep it from being full length and stuff becoming unreachable. It holds a couple boxes of rods and a small homak parts organizer I found which is perfect for holding the various tips, feed wheels and other gun consumables.

    There's just enough width to hold 2 tanks if I want to add a second, as long as I stay in the 80/125 size range 150 would be pushing it.

    Thinking about cutting up a little more sheet and adding sides to the bottom.

    Heres my cart build.

    I built it from a $50, 750 lb capacity warehouse cart.
    Heres the cart in its original form.


    I cut it up into its major pieces for easier storage till I could turn it into a cart. My aim is to reuse the rounded corners as much as possible.


    Heres a shelf cut to 18 wide.


    I narrowed the tall back frame to 18. Wide enough to accommodate two 110 cu ft tanks.


    Here is the frame tacked onto the base. I mitred the corners for a clean look.


    I cut more of the parts up to make the shelf supports and the top shelf side guards.


    Im going to put a drawer for TIG consumables under the top shelf and possibly one on the base to hold grinding wheels and other gear.
    Plus Ill add hose hangers, filler rod holders and pedal holder.
    Oh and wheels

    Thanks. I thought I might be able to use the base as it was but it wasnt a good fit. I will chop it up for the 1x3 tubing though.

    Just about finished the cart.
    @lis2323 provided some excellent tank straps so no chain or ratchet straps required.
    Still need to add a drawer, cable hangers and some rod holders.
    Pretty happy with how it came together.
