  • TIG welding cart

    I finished the cart for my 280 and the plasma cutter. I decided the bottom shelf was a good place for the Milwaukee Saw.

    It is a bit tall but has proven to be quite stable with the considerable weight on it.

    It's showing the spare tank as I had ran out of gas with the previous project.

    I hope you enjoy. I sure like it.

    Here is a link to a youtube vid for the weldable brackets I made for the cart...

        Good looking cart, I'm sure you will get a lot of use out of it.

          Tig Rod Storage

          Hey there Robert:
          Nice job on your cart! I built one similar in design as far as tig storage is concern. One thing that I did and changed was that the 2" PVC storage tubes.
          I cut the tubes right above the half way point and glued screwable connections so that I can store half used tig rods back in the same storage tube. I just bunch up the full tig rods at the top with my hand and slip over the top with top PVC half. http://www.millerwelds.com/resources...rother)-Part-1

            Thanks NDAV8R,

            I don't mind the caps at the top as I have other storage for the short sticks when I have them. I would like to know where you get your screw tops though. I don't think I have seen them.

            Ill be working on a cooler, but I won't stick it up top as I would worry if I sprung a leak it would drain directly into the Dynasty. (of course).

            Rockin cart you have there.

              Just take off the chop saw and plant the cooler down low.

                Thats what is going to happen, but I hate losing the spot for my saw.

                Here are some images so far of the cooler...

                16 Gauge stainless, about a 3.5 gallon capacity.





                Scoring the aluminum to make feet for the base...





                Here is the base (upside down)

                  Just for completeness sake, here is the final product. Works great.

                    I did take in consideration of a water leak from my tig cooler...the base for the cool has a slope that drains to the back in one corner away from anything electrical. Besides, if would be too top heavy with the welder on top.

                      Nice Work-

                      I think everyone wants to know-

                      Where did you get the alien in a dress, in (80's) high-tops, with predator dreads, wearing a welding helmet, holding a dandelion and a hammer from anyway..?

                        Think of it as a rorschach test.

                        You see in it what you bring to it.
