  • Welding Cart... I know, I know.

    It seems like most people make a welding cart as their first project.
    Well, I finally got around to making this one... work... kind of.

    I have 5 of these red utility carts that I paid $49 a piece for some 10+ years ago. This one has gone under the knife multiple times and has kept coming back for more. She may not look like much, but I think there are a couple of ideas buried in here that are worth sharing. You can be the judge if they are good ideas or bad ideas.

    1) The cart. I use a small tank on this so it's not too cumbersome.
    2) Drawers.
    3) 3/4 view.
    4) I put this bar on so I could hang my sanders/grinders and keep them close and off the table, floor, under my feet, etc.
    5) It's all about the wheels, baby. Built for speed, just like me.

    Nice job on the cart. Where did the wheels come from?

      Thanks.

      I think they're roller blade or scooter wheels.
      They roll very quietly and smoothly and have bearings.

        Chris,
        Very nice cart. If it were mine there would have to be a few additional compartments for the items that have high use and I typically misplace when I am hurried.

        1.A place for my saftey glasses.
        2.A place for my hearing protection.
        3.A place for my actual glasses.

        Thanks for posting the photos,
        Nick
