  • lets see your TIG carts Dyn200 TA185 and the like

    i'm about to start my cart and as im going to do it out of aluminum i kinda want to get it right as i have a limited amount of free aluminum to work with. i'm also thinking of polishing it up when im done so i dont want to get dome and find out i forgot some thing real important i should have added (kinda like i did with the last cart ) as i'm still new to TIG i think odds are good i'm not thinking of some thing i need to include in the cart.
    so how about helping me get it right the first time. pic's of your carts and what you did or did not add or wish you had added.
    thanks guys.
    nothing like an excuse to show off your stuff.

    well here is the stuff i have to work with.
    1" aluminum tube with some pre-bent 90%'s, 5" swivel wheels,some 18" 110% open bearing slides for a droow and enough diamond plate to make a neat lil foot controle holder.
    1st pic is a quick look at the suplys i'll be using
    2nd is the pile of the rest of the suplies, man i gota clean up the shop.
    3rd is the foot controle idea.
    4th is the old all terain cart i'm using now that has gotten over filled
    i got my covers on e-bay and only have 1 more order to fill befor i can start the shop clean up from the last 4 or 40 jobs then i can get started on the new cart, with any luck that will happen this week end, wish me luck.
    ill post pic's as it progresses.

    Hey James
    I've been saving welding cart pictures from wherever I can find them for months (years?) I have about a hundred pictures in a file on my computer.
    These are NOT my own pictures, but OTHER PEOPLES ideas. If you want me to burn a CD & send it too you, you can sort through them & post a few for the other guys, if you want to.
    If you want a CD send me your mailing address. My e-mail is in the member info.

            My TIG Cart

            Hey Guys
            I'm a newbie here. I've been welding as a hobby for a couple of years. Here is a TIG Cart for my Dynasty 200 made from 1" thick walled steel tube and sheet metal for the shelves. I'm gonna try to attach a couple of pictures.

                Here are mine

                I know that Fun4now and many others have seen my carts that I made recently over on the Hobart board but for those that have not:

                The first three are of my TA185 cart.
                The fourth is the foot pedal retainer.
                The fifth one is all three of my carts.

                        I welded the shelf under my 3/4 square tubing so it has a 3/4 inch lip all the way around.

                            thats a realy cool loooking tank lock down, i have not seen one like that befor. top shelf.
                            i guess i'm just a big scardy cat about wanting my welders straped down but i guess having a dirt floor makes mine a bit more needed.

                              Smooth72,

                              Where did you purchase the knobs for your tank lockdown?
