    My old man rarely gave me compliments and I worked with him every day until he died

    He had high standards and his expectations were that everything was to be done right. (probably from his stint in the army)

    Silence was his form of praise.

    The piece on the left looks like there is some undercut from another weld, where this break happened

Usually I run hardwire here but last 2 boxes I ran the core wire. Really tough to run it downhill tho. I’ve learned to long arc it to make it run colder downhill.

    I like it! Have ya thought about a spring loaded latch for that swingy-outy bit? One less thing to drop on the ground and bounce up under the workbench.

    Nothing wrong with that! I have a bunch of those "hex head pins" kicking around. A lot of them have cross pins made out of bent stick electrodes.

    That's a really nice cart. An enormous amount of time goes into a nice tricked up cart like that, but once it's done it's there for life and shows off your skills to anyone that comes through your shop. You also see it every day with pride and it can become a family heirloom even. Fitting addition to a well organised shop with top notch tools and gear in it.

    I like that clamp setup. A lot better than a piece of chain or a ratchet strap.

    Have you considered a standing platform behind the cylinders and some electric motors on the wheels? That way you can just hop on the cart and drive it around the shop.

    Here I made you a picture

    Seriously though I did try to buy the electric shopping cart retriever used in parking lots when Target closed up shops in Canada. The plan was to use it for moving a welding table.

    Really not a bad idea!

    Naturally, I have a solution for moving the welding table, too.

    Go buy a surplus M274 Mule. Already has a flat deck on it. It's about the right height. Just throw a piece of 1/2" plate on it there any yer good to go!

    Need to level it? Adjust the tire pressure!

    I like the cart, perfect job to do a piece at a time. Time makes for great finish and paint.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    I built a few things we sand, tape the welding joints and prime before assembly. Spatter doesnt stick, easy to resand and prime again. Not that it matters in the case of shop equipment, most paint looks and lasts but where we using epox primers, usually an industrial grade to reduce the cost they can mottle a little etc, doesnt hurt on most equipment but show piece or car truck finish we scotchbrite a little between coats. They blame it on thje paint sometimes when its really the primer. I got a bunch of equipment paint tricks and paint follows welding. Its what is seen in the end.
    You should be shipping that stuff somewhere to a "collector: crowd, you have good design, useful art. Benches should be in a "gallery"
