    Homemade welding cart thread

    I torched up a cart for my Syncrowave 180 a couple years back when I got it. My plan is to add to it and add filler rod storage and an upper shelf to hold a plasma cutter (getting the plasma first though) and most importantly a handle of some sort to wheel it around with.

    Post up your creations!

    (Can't find MY pics - will post up later)

    I picked up this up from Harbor Freight a service cart on sale plus a 20% coupon for about $20. Basically cheaper than it would have been to purches the metal and make it myself.
    It is huge at 24x36, but it can hold my mig, oxy-fuel, safty equipment, grinders, brush, and all the other odds and ends.

    Here is a quick picture of the cart with some junk on it. I haven't gotten around to cutting out spaces for the tanks but I am sure you can imagine how that would go. Add a few hooks to hang cables and hold the gun and I think it will work out real nice.

    I got the Harbor Freight 28x16" cart. Mig machine on bottom, Plasma on top, bottle in back. I just cut a hole to fit the tank with a jig saw, then lined the hole with some old cut airhose.

    Great idea with the air hose

    I threw this together in about 30 minutes from scraps and some recycled lawnmower wheels. It works pretty well. ....very "all-terrain".

    I'll bet that cart is easy to roll around with those nice big wheels. Looks great!
