I figure if I am welding, I will be cutting, so I mounted mine on top of the welder and joined the input power cables together and ran a 50 footer cord. The plasma is up off the floor and the whole unit is easily rolled around. Also on top is provisions for the plasma leads to be rolled up, can't stand all the cables not being tied down and put away cleanly.

I like the idea of the mounted air reel.

Thanks for the input everyone. It looks like I going make a cross between the Dave Haak cart and the Ralenr cart.

Default Cart

Here's my cart for my spectrum 625. It still needs a place for consumables. If it gets painted it will hve to wait for warmer weather since it's about 20 degrees in the shop right now.

I'd post a pic of my plasma cart again, but some may deride me for the liberal addition of "mother natures fibrous" structurals. So I abstain.
