Well I didn't get a cart made for work but little by little I made one for me.

Ah man I was hoping you would build it with a boom for the torch, so I could have a cool drawing to copy off of

Was just thinking, don't know if it was mentioned, but maybe adding a spot for a bottle of air, for those jobs too far away from air?

I'm just curious. Why do so many people build their carts so the machine sits at an angle. I assume it's so they can get a clearer look at the face of the machine while standing.

Most welders own squares and view levels?

Personally, if a shelf, tray, or table is at an angle my JB and coke will slide off or worse yet, tip over. Mine are always flat.

My being 2'-9" tall, allows me to see the faces of my equipment at all angles.

My garage has too much dirt/metal dust too much of the time, plus uneven flooring. So, my carts if used are built low in height and because some of the machines have strong fans, they stay on the horizontal, zero decline.

FWIW

Digr,

I like the cart. Some nice refinements and some original thinking. Is your air dry enough or do you plan on using some type of drying filter on the cart?

Thanks I have a water separator before the plasma but I am looking for something better to put on the cart.
