Default welding cart

I know, I know. I've been watching waaay too much TV. Only for the sake of everybody's love of pictures do I post this and open myself up for the ridicule . Anyway, this is a cart I built about 6 months ago for a TIG machine that I still don't have yet (soon hopefully).
Alright, good or bad, let me have it. I can take it .
BTW that paint job took me about 3 hours so take it easy Cutter .

Ya know, that just might be a halfway decent lookin cart, if you stripped the gawdawful paint off, and let it get a nice coating of rust.

Franz, for some strange reason I was hoping you'd say that.
Maybe you'd like me to touch up that trailer for ya.

Well Elvis, now that ya mention it, I do have a good quantity of Rustoleum in stock, and brushes. Of course, you'll need to mask all that high priced reflective tape on the trailer, I can't afford to replace that.
If you really get into it, I have a few other things you could paint too, and I'm sure LN would let you paint the house too. You can paint over top of a flower garden without damaging plants, can't you.

Default wow, a kitchen cart!

Wow, for a minute there I thought I'd stepped into this antique store over on 34th St. He's got an elaborate display of red enamel kitchen untensils........

Now that ya mention it, it does resemble some of that Good Housekeeping stuff from the 30s, with a little Youngstown Kitchen thrown in.

I didn't think blue went with red??
This is the ITW board, so I thought I ask here first.

Elvis,
You got some nice things going on with that cart but,
I don't think this matching setup will fit on it???

Good grief, I knew that was coming .

Hey Scott, I knew someone would post a picture of that 'thing'. Someday soon I hope a T/A 185 will be perched atop the cart. I hope my blue machines won't mind .
