Default Under Bench Mig Cart

I needed a cart for a HH187 that would fit under my workbench so it would be out of the way.

This is what I came up with. It might be a little low for some folks, but it does what I need it to and has some storage space to boot.

Neat little drawer. Good job. What size material did you use?

Blue collar,

Cart looks good. I do like your drawer and the offset on the top tray so you can still access your wire feed without moving the welder. I like your paint scheme too as it is the same as I have on most of my stuff. :evil:

Take care and enjoy the forum.

For the material, most of it was leftover stuff from a trailer I made several years ago. I don't think I would have intentionally made it so heavy if I didn't already have the stuff. The sides where the drawer is are 6" channel, the base is 3x2x1/4 angle. Most of the rest is 1x1x1/8 angle. No worries about this thing tipping over.

Thanks for the complimenents.

The true benefit of making your own stuff, it made to fits your particular needs, not some general purpose design, that you have to make do with. As stated before the offset top and drawer show a well thought out design. Your lack of paint show your concern for the enviroment. :evil:

Very nice job. Heavy is good! As far as paint is concerned it is used to hide bad welds. Be proud of your welds don't paint them.

Well, in order to keep the rust demons at bay, paint has been added.
At least it's not gloss. I believe it's only the shiny paint that causes cancer in California:evil:
