  • Steering on Welding Cart

    I finally got my cart on the ground for a road test and it steers backwards.
    My pivot is in the front, does it need to be in the back?
    I don't have a very good understanding about steering and this was my first attempt.
    The cart is not finished yet, I still ned to add the drawer assemblies and finish the tank retention and electrical.

    I painted the wheels blue, just for you guys.

      So you made the wrong decision on the steering pivot. Fix it.
      IMO, the most cool thing is you made the RIGHT decision on the welder itself, which it would have been much harder for you to correct

          yep. just move the pivot point to the other side.
          you might want to put some bearings on your steering shaft at the pivot points, for when your cart is loaded down with all them goodies your gonna put on it
          my daddy always said i was IRONHEADED....
          feel free to P/M me

            Here is another view of the steering.

            Do I need anymore support under the bottle shelf?

              I was looking at the steering, on microfiche and it looks like I may need the gear from the shaft, to make it work easier, then I could attach my handle to the gear.

                it depends on what size bottles you plan to use

                i would add another cross bar and make the shelf out of 3/16 sheet
                if in doubt add more suport

                  I added more support, using 1 in. angle and welded it to the flatbar and tubing, underneath.
