    Great job. What paint did you use? Color code?

      That is ace hardware's safety blue. I couldn't find rustoleum safety blue which was recommended but this was close enough. And thanks. As I get a little older (27), I start to realize that I should take my time, especially on something I will own for the rest of my life. Don't wanna look back in 25 years and be like, "That lazy bum."

        I really like it. Nice work.
        How hard is it to roll?

          Rolls great. Not too heavy. Only thing I wish I would have done differently is mount the plasma cutter higher or atleast put the cords elsewhere. They get in the way of my drawers.

            Looks like you used the original wheels that came off the 251 to put on the back of your new cart. Word of caution: those wheels were designed to be used on the 251 only. I added the twin bottle rack to my 251 and with the weight of two large bottles of gas, those wheels will give out pretty quickly. Just ask me how I know. You've not only added the weight of 2 bottles, but also the weight of that other welder and the weight of the new frame. With everything you have on that cart I'd say that you've pretty much tripled the weight on those same wheels. I'd highly recommend that you invest in some heavy duty rear wheels for that setup, or your investment wil, more than likely, come crashing down rather quickly. Those wheels aren't steel, at least mine weren't and mine looked just like yours, they're just made of a hard rubber/plastic combination and were never designed for that much weight.

              I appreciate the input on the wheels. I will definitely look into that.
