    Here’s a couple pics of the “Tip, Slide and Drop” gas mixer base for the welding cart. Designed for quick tool-less install and removal.

    Cup holders also work for holding tig rod tubes

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

    I built this a few weeks ago using scrap metal from a clothing rack. The top and bottom panels are floor boards from a CRJ-200, they just happened to be the perfect size for what I wanted to do. The file cabinet is a non-structural part of the cart, it is just bolted on from the bottom where the adjustable feet were. The bottle holders are seat belt extensions that have a total open size of 7.5 inches, so even if the adjustment slips they aren't much bigger than the bottles.









    I'm still deciding on what if any cable management I want to do and adding some tig rod holders.

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

    Last year I made a reptile tank stand for my niece.. this year she went off to college and gave away the reptiles....

    So I took it back and re-purposed it....

    need to add some locking casters and hooks etc.

    everything together will save me room also....

    Nice repurpose and efficient organization, John

    Your multi machine setup is screaming for gas line quick couplers and Y valves if you haven’t already done so.

    Lis,
    Is there anything exceptional about those gas couplings over regular airline couplings?

    I posted this already in the Esab forum but I'll add it to this thread.
    Aluminum tube frame, steel sheet metal panels and drawer, though rear axle, bolt on front swivels, and a pull-tight MC strap for the tank.

    Handle doubles as a place for the cables/hoses and is tubing with the ends capped and machined.

    I tested the balance with just the water cooler to make sure the tank didn't make it do a wheelie.

    I haven't had the need for a cart for many years. The other machines are monsters on their own under carriages.

    Yes. They are NOT NPT. Typically 5/8-18 for inert. 9/16-18 for O2.

    Plus they need to have the ball swivel end to seat.

    OK Makes sense. Thanks.

    I see the other exceptional thing about them is the price.

    I did my best plumber impression (sans butt crack) and made up my gas line hoses and got them routed half decently.



    I even found an oil filter seal that fit tig rod canister holes to use as a grommet.

    John they were from my Utility Trailer Tautliner. (Curtainside/Chinatop etc).

    Perfect for the tanks. Adjust to fit once and then it’s always one hand to secure the overcenter clamp.

    Strain relief for input power cord. This way the cart can be pulled without the heavy extension cord pulling on the welder.






    Drilled and tapped holes for fire extinguisher mount.




    Done.

    Welding carts to me are an opportunity for shop based craftsmen to show off their skills and pride of workmanship. It's ok for home gamers to have four posts and a couple of square shelves for a cart it's a different circumstance.
    When you walk into a pro shop and see an eye popping cart you know top work is done there. Your cart is way cool, alot of thought and work has gone into it. You never get back that time but the result is there for a lifetime for all to see. Really well done!

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

    Nice, went yin and yang with the setup. Lincoln stick and (esentially) Miller mig. Nice little setup though, got most of it covered with those two!

    The duality of man.

    The cart is actually very slick looking but hidden by the welders, could be the chink in the minimalists armor. Pure function over form (though both are still nice), I'm torn haha.

    It's the black paint, btw, that hides the cart (with the lighter colored gear on it). If you'd want to visually highlight your very clean work a brighter color would make quite a difference.

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

    Thanks so very much. It's 5 yrs old and I'm going to work on a new cart. I've been looking for ideas the new cart will have the Hobart Handler 210 MVP and my Hypertherm Powermax 45 and a tig machine (haven't decided which one yet). I know that most of you guy's are professionals. So I'm hoping to learn from you guy's.

    First post. I've been lurking, looking and learning here for quite some time. I searched and couldn't find what I needed.
    My garage and workshop are unpaved and can be a little rough. 16 pages of great carts in this thread with all but one single stack 2,3 or 4 shelves with 1 welder on each.
    I want something shorter with 2 shelves; 1 for a toolbox or other container and 1 for my Lincoln 180 and Primeweld 3 in 1 side by side. Low and wide with big tires on the back and big swivel castors in the front for more stability moving it around the property. Is there any reason not to do this or is the single stack design "Just how it's always been done"?

    I expect that the stacked design is mostly about real estate in the welding area. Wide will take up more space and depending what you have/use for gas bottles they can be tall anyway. I don't see why you couldn't go low and wide but you'll still need to support the gas bottles unless you move them separately on their own cart. Also dirt, grinding dust etc. tends to eventually fall down so if your machine is there it will collect on it. Anyway just my initial thoughts. Welcome aboard and good luck with your cart.

    I thought about the bottles. I have 125CF ones now for TIG and MIG. Will be swapping them out for 40CF now that I know my SXS approach won't kill a busload of nuns like they say about other modifications. Thanks.
