  • Dynasty 200 DX Crazy Cart

    Well seeing I got my new Miller Dynasty 200 DX and the Coolmate 3, I decided to build a cart for both components. We have a small automotive repair shop and also do some welding and fabrication for a side line. For a hobby I restore old vintage gas pumps, Coca Cola Coolers and other items and customize some of them so when it came to building a cart I wanted to do something a little different and to fit into what I really needed while having a bit of fun doing it.

    I decided to go with the automotive theme while making it a practical cart. The cart is built all out of 1/8 th steel. It's total weight is 210 lbs making it a good sturdy cart with no flexing and feeling very sure footed when moving it around. To keep with the automotive theme I added the following:

    Mag wheels.
    - Custom built fenders.
    - Tail lights.
    - Custom front and rear bumpers and the rear bumper is a step bumper. I machined a trailer ball for it as well and added a small license plate representing our province of Newfoundland, Canada
    - I added the exhaust.
    - A spare wheel in the back that can be moved up to where the tank is when the tank is not on the cart (The tank is also used on my MM251).
    - A dashboard looking feature on it to store the Tig rods. Just on top of the dash is a windshield and by that is a removable rod to hang my Miller helmet on.
    - I made another small compartment by the windshield to put gloves in.
    - Extension cord reels on the rear and to dress them up we went with the NOS decals.
    - Just above the Coolmate 3, I integrated a full sliding drawer that's a must for all your incidentals.
    - A special hanging bracket for the foot control pedal.
    - I painted the cart with Base coat clear coat paint as well.

    To add the finishing touch to the cart I asked my buddy Brian who is about the best there is when it comes to graphic design to come up with a design for the cart. We tossed around a few ideas and he ran with it. My wife came up with and made the tank sock to hide the ugly tank as well to give it a cleaner look. I think the cart compliments the Dynasty 200 and making it a matched set.

    I think it turned out nice but I'll let you be the judge of that. Some ask why and my answer is why not!
    I call the cart "Crazy Cart" . If you want to see some more of my work you can see some of it here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/15602393@N05/

    Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy seeing it. Paul

                    Thanks everyone. Happy you like it. Took almost a month to build it and 7.5 hours just to paint it and add a few more days to design the graphics but it don't matter.

                    Well do things some times that we spend too much time at but as long as we all enjoy it, it's worth it. The tubes are the ones that come with the pack of tig rods. It was cheapier to buy packs of steel rods with the tubes than try and just buy the tubes themselves. No point in getting older without getting smarter

                              Stunning

                              A truly remarkable piece of craftsmanship.

                              The wifey done a good job on the tank cover, perfect match.

                              Attention to detail, the squiggly black lines along the rail; cool.

                              How did you 'black' the ends of the exhaust? I'm copying that!!

                              And a V8, too!!
