The bigger problem is the stability of the cart since the goal is to keep the tank from tipping over if it ever did start to fall. 4 small casters are not ideal for that, and why most people use larger wheels on the rear of their welding carts to create stability, where the tank resides. That goes for commercial welding carts as well. Also, IMO, why a shop cart is not ideal for a welding cart. As long as the cart is stable that shouldn't matter. With the tank inside the cart might make that a moot point, but any cart that stands a chance of tipping over stands a chance of the tank causing damage to the surrounding area. My $0.02...worth what people pay for it. I'm not criticizing your or other carts, just offering some fact. I have no idea what type of wheels you even have on your cart, it looks like a decent design, simple to secure the tank and get off easily as it is mounted outside the cart, yet another thing to think about. Having tanks inside a cart makes it difficult to get them out easily and get filled.
    The tank is supported on a independent 4 caster dolly. The cart isn't supporting any of the weight from the tank. The vertical bars are bolted to the cart. The velcro straps tie the tank/dolly to the cart by the vertical bars. With the weight from the welder, and water cooler, the cart isn't going to tip over.

    You must have missed it, the man of the house that f#@$'d up and married an unemployed jagoff like me is the one that pays the bills. Lucky for me that man of the house has never once said no to me buying any of my machines or tools, and I've had some pretty big pieces of iron follow me home. Also lucky is that my wife is not actually a man, and doesn't have a d!@$ swinging or an @$$#O!E planted on her shoulders like the guy in Indiana does.

    That sounds like you thought it out and planned it well. No fault in that type of thinking.

    Ok, I'm going out to contaminate some tungsten, something I'm an expert at.

    Wow! I understand none of this conversation! I thank God for my sheltered life!
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    Indeed it is, but you can't see the driveway in the picture. This is the driveway, the foundation can't be seen from the street, it's on the other side of the big blue oak tree to the right of center in the pic.

    It is a ways to the water, about 400-500 feet, but I own 90 feet of lakefront.

    With a view like that I'd be putting in a thunderbox out front with the doors opening out so I could take in the view while choking one. Very satisfying.

    The basement is going to be the shop to build the home, I have the log shell up to the top plates close to where I currently live.

    There are 2 sets of French Doors that open from the full walkout basement. The doors will be 8.5' high, so I can fit my band saw in/out.

    My first project for the home will be a driveway gate at the street. Most likely a slider.

    I plan to build a detached 30'x40' shop after, if I live that long... My plan is to leave this to my kids, debt free. Has water rights to the lake with a building permit to use the water for domestic use.

    I love these things, I make about half a dozen at a time when things are slow. Two 7 foot pieces of pipe and 2 12 inch pieces of 3/16" chain. About $400 per hour selling them for $100 apiece. Really...
    The hay haulers use them to keep the straps from cutting into the end bales. It's also a DOT requirement to have them. Name:  20200605_092821.jpg

    Yeah, pipe is probably better than two 2x4's and a couple feet of webbing like we usually use...

    I remember those days. These are a bit more durable and easier to store. I have a pile of used U-bolts that make good hangers under the decks.

    Made a "scotch eye auger" for bushcrafting.
    Used the Bridgeport and a dividing head to put the bevel on the tube, and got a sale/clearance self drilling 1" bit.
    Definitely doesn't work on oak, but does a decent job on pine

    Well, I told you I was up in Lake County... it's mostly lake up there! There's some great bass fishing there, 10+ lb. bass regularly being yanked out...

    I'm not really on the lake, my property is at the top of Buckingham Park, and about 400-500 feet from the lake. My lakefront footage is a bit rough, but my main intention is to put the pipe in the lake for water. I would need to build a pier if I wanted to build a dock. I have access to a private ramp with 2 docks I can launch from.

    There's a lot of oaks down to the lake. I've hiked down it a few times, it's steep, about 50% grade.

    The other pic I posted is where the gate would go, I will probably have some work done to open it up some, but it will be a slider as I mentioned to you. I remember you saying you would never do a swing gate anyway. I don't think my driveway is very well suited for a swing gate.

    I could do it out of aluminum if needed, but it seems steel is the most common.

    That auger looks good, do you use that by hand to auger holes for rustic furniture? Did you use it to put that handle on the mallet?

    No. I cut with a silkie hand saw, and split off the outside to make the handle.
    The eye doesn't like oak at all, it gets wedged in there impossibly tight

    As for use, you just find a stick of the right diameter and put in the eye to use as a T- handle. It's the first one I've made, I'll probably improve on it eventually.

    What's the point of the bevel? Is that to cut into the T-handle to hold?

    I'm sure you must have seen the tenon devices used on cordless drills. Often people use either forstner or auger bits for the hole. Sounds like you used your silkie for the tenon portion. I wasn't sure if you used the side of the bit on your mill to form the tenon or not, not to be so inquisitive.
