    mini tig cart

    want to build a SMALL holder and cart for my dyn.200dx to haul in my jeep
    i live near a marina and get calls on weekends and at night/ great pay to do aliminum and stanless rails and ladders/ the $ people that have the boats ect.will pay the money so they can go out the next day/i bought the dyn. because of the 110 volt capibility( the docks don't have 220) and the size/i bought an argon bottle today that is about 18 in. tall and 5in. diameter/the dya. is about 22 in. long X 14 in. h X 8 in. w/am trying to build an aluminum or thin wall molly box (carrying case) and fold up cart to haul it down the long docks to ease my (60yr old back)am thinking of a box for the welder and foot control and torche and leads + the bottle with gages/ that i can put in the truck/ all in one /then a break down cart with air tires to haul to the job
    please put your brain in gear / thanks pat from texas
    thanks for all the ideas/ i like the caster size and the open end/ yes the docks are steep and kinda rough /i really don't want to dump that kind of money in the lake/ they don't pay that well/ maby i should make it water proof and put flotation on it/ belive it or not?i almost lost my 180 sync. last year/ the lake was really low and the ramp was steep and wet/ 250 lbs is hard to hold/lost a batch of skin but not the welder ( with less than 20 hrs)that is when i decided on the dyn./also i won't for get the fire bottle thanks again from pat in texas

      Yeah James that is what I was trying to get across and the boat slips down here would not be easy to mobile w/out the larger tires due to the warping lumber that they use. The pic is of an offroad a fellow created that has the larger pneumatic caster I spoke of.
      BTW James, I also added a pic of my tig/plaz stacked unit I built several yrs. ago, unfortunately long before I started to frequent these weld forums. I certainly could have use a better idea, but both of these units are so heavy this seems like a good idea at the time,
      Good luck James and Patrick w/your projects

        i still think converting a dolly is the simplest way to get you mobil with tank and dyn. you could even use one of the fold down versions for taking up less space.

        i like that 6 wheeler.throw a motor on that bad boy and you could ride it to the job.
        here is my allterain version. i built it back when all i had was MIG and O/A but now with TIG, plasma MIG, and O/A its time to remake some carts. i realy want to seperate them all into indivigual carts of a smaller version so i can just pull in the one i need and park them all out of the way when not in use. also looking forward to making the TIG cart out of aluminum, just seems like a cool idea and good practice with the new TIG.

        first pic is it without the TA on it, as you can guess from the extra wheels on the O/A rack its removable. just pull a few pins and she lifts right off and is ready to role.the handle for the cart dose the same thing, i got tired of tripping over it.
        next pic is with the TA but no O/A (the TA is facing away)
        last pic is the front of my TA-185

        for now i have put the plasma on the shelf abouve the welding table, its got plenty of reach for most stuff but its not moble any more. put the TA-185 under the welding table as i also did with the MIG. so i have an empty cart, with any luck this will motivate me to get off my but and get started building carts.

            mini dyn. cart

            thanks for all the welder smarts/ can't believe it took me so long to find this site ( yes i can it took me 6 months to log on/ and only with my WONDERFUL wife doing it)/i'm into welding not puting / but with the dyn i can see it on the wall/all the ideas are great/Leons is that a walking beam axle ?/fun4 now/ i am swaying to the fold up dolly/some of the moving guys had really neat alum. two wheelers/my whole rig weights less than 60 lbs. and if i lay the bottle sideways it will be 24" long x16 " hi. x16 " w./ should be able to build a .060 alum box to enclose the welder and bottle/then with some quick couplers for hoses and dzus fastners for doors i should be able to disasemble load and reasemble quickly/i got a plastic box for the ped & leads with the welder/probably build an alum box for them also ( you ever try to put something back in one of those boxes?)thanks to all of you pat from texas
            p.s. fun4 now you know where i could get the the neat winter coats for the welders???? reeder @ aol.com --- to you and all melters

              you know where i could get the the neat winter coats for the welders????
              i dont understand the ??
              i shot you an e-mail to the address above, or you could clear it up here if you want.
              DYN200 is a nice welder i wish i could have gotten one but i'm ok with the TA i have for now.
              if you lay down your argon bottle be shore to build a gage guard into the cart to keep it safe.

                      Agreed!

                      The first thing that crossed my mind was a 90mm main gun wouldn't look too far out of place. Maybe a flex mount .50 cal. for secondary armament?

                            In progress....

                            ......her is my modified Hobart/Miller cart.....I added 12" to the front legs and 20 1/2" for the rear supports.....rear wheels are from TSC two for $9 and the front are Northern Tool specials........the material used to add to the cart came from Sam's club....well there dumpster anyway

                            UPDATE:
                            I tossed the modified into the scrap pile after a couple of issues and decided to go the way of Da Catt (BillDaCatt) I used his basic design and added a few touches to help make it my own......what do you guys think of the paint job (flat black and beige for the wheels).

                                I made this welding cart for the wire welder & oxy/acc. many years ago. It's actually a revamped stand for an old table saw that had seen it's better days. Since I got the TIG I never use the wire wilder (needs parts) but I still use the cart to move the Oxy./acc. around when needed.
