  • Welding Cart

    Just joined the forum and thought I'd say hello and post a recent project. I have to say I stole a few ideas from several other projects to come up with my own. I built this cart because I had a welder cart, cutting torch cart, and plasma cart and was running out of room in the garage. My space is small when the wife's car is inside so I made this cart to make a bit of room. It holds my millermatic 175, miller 375 extreme plasma and mu gas torch set up all in one. I also put 2 electrical boxes on the back to plug in both the welder and plasma at the same time and made a 20ft extension cord to make a single plug in to my 220v power. My airhose stays with the cart as well. It made a big change in my space to work as well as it gives me mobility with the extension cord and air hose. Hope it inspires someone else to make room in their small shop.

      very cool

      Very nice cart, it's fun to look at all the good ideas out there. I'm in the same boat, very little room in garage.

              Really nice job on your cart, good use of space.

              May I suggest putting the guard back on your grinder before it kicks back and takes a finger or two off? You know how fast it will eat steel, imagine what it would do to skin and bones!

                  Very nice cart and the paint job looks excellent.

                  By the way, the boss, my youngest daughter who is extremely critical of my work said "it looked awesome". Hey, what more could you ask for?

                    Nice looking cart. Looks like Krylon Ford blue paint. Always did like that color. (But not as much as I like Chevy orange!)

                    Good job. Neat and tidy.

                      Thanks for the comments. It is shaker can Krylon direct from Wal Mart in the closest to Miller blue I could find. I should have some pic's of the new welding table soon. It was also a project to save room in the garage. I was working off of 2 very uneven saw horses. Hard to make level and I had to move them often to make room for the rest of the garage things that come up. I should be set for my own piece of the garage soon.
