    Default Anyone have plans for an O/A cart? Are there any here on the projects board?

    I am looking at buying a couple bottles this weekend, and it would be fun breaking in my new welders by making a cart for my O/A setup. Any plans or pics with dims would be great.

    Thanks!

    what size tanks are you getting ??
    i ahve a small set i built a cart for but if you have larger tanks it might be better to just buy HF's $35 version as it will be more $ to build it your self, unless you just want to build one. again what size tanks will be needed to help build a cart to fit.
    do a serch you will likely fine many here and at the ask andy site.

    Here's a pic of the tanks I am looking at. He is asking $400, they are supposedly big ones, and full. This seems a little high to me, what do you think? Thanks!

    if the reg's and torch set comes with it its not too bad. if its just the tanks i think i would pass and get a set localy. also be shore to check and see if you can get your LWS to fill them. they may be picky about this.
    i would not call them big ones by any means. at first glance it looks like a B acet. and an 80 oxy. that being the case you could get them at your LWS for less. thats what i have. but its hard to tell in the pic. also i dont have the 80 in the pic i showed as its an old pic. i'll get you a new pic today soem time. again it all depends on if the gages and torch es and hoses come with it, if its a compleat package and they are not e-bay cheepo stuff its an ok deel. if its e-bay look-a-likes for torch and gages, run dont walk away run screaming from the building like it was on fire. leave him standing there with a torch in his hand wondering whats the matter with that guy, even more so if you screem "FIRE" on the way out.
    sereously though do not get e-bay cheepos when it comes to torches. you can get a set of med. duty ones at TSC for about $160 i think it was and thats the cheapest i would go on a torch set. well the cheapest i would go now. i tryed a e-bay special and it burned back all the way to the regulators and they were black into the reg's. scary to think how close ly i came to going boom!!! i now have real victors and am verry happy with them.

    Actually, it's just for the tanks no regs included. My guess is they are approx 48" and 24" tall, based on the size of the tires and compressor in the background, and come to think of it, that doesn't seem all that big to me. How big are the ones you mentioned that you can't get locally, are they still 48" but just larger diameter, or taller as well? This is a pain, as I want big ones, but I want to own them...

    Here are some pics of my cart. The tool box on top is removable. I useed a 2" ratchet strap to hold the tanks, and there is room for the safety caps. You can't see it, but there is also an eyebolt that lets me use a chain fall to raise the whole thing off the ground for easy loading into a truck.







    And this is one that my Dad built. The handles are a little too short for me, but the big wheels make it easy to roll on uneven ground.

    Cool beans! Nice looking carts, and the one your Dad made with the big wheels looks Old School, I have seen them like that before, from the 1st 1/2 of the 20th century. Kevin, thanks for the pics too, your cart is quite the setup, talk about multi-tasking!

    More ideas for me to use if I am going to end up building my own. Thanks, guys!
