Default THE welding cart thread

I know everybody's built a welding cart or two ... post up some pics of them!

Here's a couple of pics of my cart in it's 2nd revision

The pics are already out of date. HF just had the solid rubber tires on sale for $4.99 each and I got two to replace the continually going flat pneumatic tires on my cart

Jack I noticed you have the Speedway Plasma cutter, how do you like it? I have saw some at some of the tool sales around in the past, don't recall what kind of price sticker they had on them. Have you used any others to compare that one to?
Oh also wanted to tell you that your cart looks good.

Nice looking cart Jack. I'm afraid mine is still in the thought process, so seeing everyone else's is just what I need.

hey Gnewby, for the price it's hard to beat that little plasma cutter. It only has a 5/16" rating which is a downside. But for $399 ... it was hard to pass up. It's worked great so far ...

Thanks for the info Jack, I wondered about them when I saw them in a tool sale or two. I don't recall if it was a Cummings sale Homier or just who it was that was having it.

Default Cart in progress

I finally got around to sticking my little mig cart together; still got a lot of little detail stuff to do: floor under bottle, clamp for the bottle, expanded metal in the tool tray, trim the axle & drill it for cotter pins, hanger for the cable in the setback area under the welder tray, some kind of handle and golly, I may even decide to paint it. More later, as it progresses.
