You will like running gas, less mess from chipping slag and way less smoke too.

Flux core is best used out in the wind where gas dont work.

The cart looks nice. Not criticizing, just a note, but I would have probably made the front axle as wide as the rear, just to be more stable. I'd hate to see that new welder take a tumble if it gets bumped.

I had a similar typewriter table but mine had to be WW2 vintage. It had cast iron skirts around the casters and was OD green. I think I gave it to a gal at work who still used a typewriter to make shipping labels and whatnot. It was pretty cool.

I inherited the typewriter table from my wife's late aunt's estate... After I dis-assembled the legs and cut off the drop-leaf tabs, I had a sinking feeling that I probably coulda fetched a few bucks for it! It too had to be vintage! So, a quick search on a popular bidding site confirmed my suspicions... They bring anywhere from a few bucks to near $100! Oh well, I just a have to settle for the fact that my wife's aunt, who just happened to be my favorite "aunt-in-law", will always be a part of my project...
