    Default Miller Welding Cart

    I augmented the standard cart which came with my MM180 to also accommodate my new Spectrum 375 Extreme. It is basically a "side frame" with seperate cable hangars for the welder and the plasma cutter and a shelf of sorts for the plasma cutter. This is just a temporary measure to bring some sanity to my small shop until I have time to build a proper cart for these two excellent machines.

    Nice mod to the welding cart. How is the MM180 w/ auto set. Came out a month after I bought mine.

    Thanks. I could not be happier with the MM 180.

    I really did not expect to use the auto set feature all that much. But in practice it is much quicker than refering to a chart or relying on memory for speed and voltage settings. I like it. So far I have had no regrets about my choice of welder or plasma cutter, they are both impresive machines.

    Thumbs up nice mod.

    great little cart addition. looks like the shelf is small enough to still alow the door on the MM180 to be opened for wire replacement.
    thats a lot of function in a small space with that cart combo, congrats on getting some great equipment.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    Thanks. Yes the door will raise fully on the 180 with the plasma cutter in place. Also if you remove the plasma cutter there is a gap to allow clearance to use the handle of the 180 to lift it off of the cart. I will need to add some bracing from side to side on the cart and put some larger wheels on it before I am satisfied with the result.

    Glad you like it. That pic got in there by accident but the grate over the garbage can makes a decent cutting table for the plasma cutter and prevents a lot of sweeping up....

    Braced it side to side, installed 3" casters and 8" wheels. It is solid and rolls 10 times better. Now I'm not sure how temporary this set up is....
