Default Finished welder table

I finished the table/cart whatever, to get my welder and torch cooler out of the dirt and dust on the floor. I also included a picture of the view while I was outside painting this morning.

No wheels - I'm tied to my 300 CF AR tank and do my work on my bench. I may add some down the road.

Thank you. I wanted to make sure it didn't end up on the floor if a cable got snagged. The inverter and cooler are actually pretty light in weight. The position of the cables didn't allow for a sunken table.

Getting expensive things like this more safely settled on a nice stand/table makes things so much more workable. With or without wheels, if it works, it is good.

I really like the welding cart.. Nice design.. Must be really strong..

But, How come you didn't make a welding cart with wheels and tank holder as conventional methods dictate?

I know from experience that the wheels aren't really necessary in a small shop where you don't have any room to move it around but even so..

because of how My shop is setup I also use a CK rotary amptol on a CK18 torch.. for outside work.

I know the CK18 is huge but I use it as my beater torch.. I also have Weldtec's most expensive hose protector TOC-24 (not that I'm bragging about it being the most expensive. I'm actually complaining about it but it is awesome. Wish I wasn't so cheap I'd buy another one) since the cable gets dragged over everything in the shop and wanted the best protection both from punctures and burns..

I love the view as well. Prime MTB country..

Conventional and I don't really go together in the same sentence ;-).

The primary design goal was to get both the inverter and cooler off the floor to minimize the dirt getting sucked through the machines. A result is the cart is wider than more common designs and not very cart like - more of a table. If the need to go mobile pops up , the inverter and cooler are lightweight, I'll just grab them off the table and go wherever needed.

My 300 CF Ar bottle is my mobility limit, so I have a 75' hose if needed.

Wheels are an option in the future, but I don't have a need for them at this point.

I love the view as well. Prime MTB country..
The boys were out biking around yesterday and had a great time.
