    Here is a couple pics of my cart since its improvement. The best addition to this cart was the 211AS. Its not much but it works well, the large casters in the front are big enough to roll well over my rough broken driveway. That was a big plus.

    This is a link to the album with all the pics.

      I needed something that would go over very rough ground outside to weld on the unimog or plow, or whatever. I also needed it to be relatively easy to pull, rather than needing two men and a small boy to tug and drag crappy hard wheels. I opted for a rugged wheeled dolly as a good base.

      The last picture shows it reclined. This IS NOT a position I welded from, simply a picture to demonstrate some of the versatility of the cart.

          This is what I made for my 211.
          I gleaned ideas from many posters.
          I want to change the steering wheels to pneumatic casters, if I can't get some 1/2 in stainless rod for the handle, as it flexes too much and limits the steering.
          I've had the drawers arounf for over 25 years, so included them.

                Nice job, I am sure we would all like to see some other shop pics as well.

                    My attempt at a aluminum cart for my dynasty. It's not finished but is anything in a welder's shop ? I'll update as progress continues.

                      Can you post a pic of how the steering was mounted

                      The bottom of your welding cart...

                        Here are some steps that I took, including a revision in design.
                        It was all new to me, so I struggled until it worked (kinda worked).
                        If I change the handle to 1/2 in it will be better but I may change to pneumatic swivel casters and keep the handle, it will steer better that way.
