  • Bought 2 new machines this week.....built a cart

    Nothing too fancy but I bought a Spectrum 375 and a Millermatic 211 MVP with a Spoolmate 100 this week and just had to build something with them. I had an engine stand I no longer use and some various other metal so out of pocket cost was a can of paint, some gas and welding wire. Beats the heck out of $80 plus for a flimsy cheap cart.

      The engine stand was a good idea.

        It was what I had lying around. I reversed the vertical riser and used the extensions you would bolt the engine to as cord wraps. It was narrowed at one end and the fixed casters were replaced with swivel casters. All joints,were welded because it was bolted together from the factory and was quite wobbly. The plasma made quick work of all modifications and cutting of the other metal. It was my first experience with one and all I can say is wow! Really beats using a die grinder! Here's a few more pics, its a little tough to see, I know.
