    Welding Cart for Miller 211 with 2 cylinders

    I had a need to hold two cylinders and my new Miller 211 welder. I had a lot of fun building it and I think it turned out pretty cool.

    The frame is made by 1.25" square tubing and reinforced in the center because the thickness was only .065. The sheet metal I used was also .065 thickness. The 4" sides were 1/8" because I didn't feel confident that the .065 would hold up with the weight and constant movement over time. Plus, I always like to overbuild a little because I would rather not have problems in the future.

    I still have to make a handle for it, and a place to wrap the cords. I left the front of the bottom shelf open in case I decide later to put a pull-out drawer in it.

    Updated pictures

    Hi all, thank you for your comments on my cart. I have finished painting it and mounted the welder and tanks, I also threw some Miller decals on it to make it look like the Millermatic 211 welder belongs on the cart. This was my first project with my new 211.

    My thoughts exactly! It is amazing how we can draw on paper and it looks pretty awesome, then we build and improve, the awesomeness gets even more awesome!

Drawing it out is a key element for me to get my ideas on paper. It is cheaper than building what is in my head and then cutting, making changes, re-welding, etc. I have done that too.

    Hey Lindley, thank you for the comment. Glad you liked that, I think I'll start doing that with some more of my plans.

    Hi, thanks for the comment. The fenders were totally an afterthought I had to protect the tires from sparks.
