    Lightbulb Mig and Plamsa rack for my Syncrowave 250

    I've got a small garage so I had to come up with something to make a smaller footprint. I was originally concerned about the weight on the tigrunner running gear but after several "test", not worried about it anymore. It's working great!

    Default more pics of the construction

    I used 1/4-20 bolts about a 1/4 longer than the originals to fasten it to the top of my 250. I poked holes in the cover to get the bolts through and I can still protect by 250, I just roll it up when I use it. The aluminum plate is easy to remove also so I can get to my lift eye if needed. The pedal hook sure comes in handy!

    Innovative design, however I'd hate the thought of having to remove all that equipment (mig, plasma) every time I needed to use my tig. Or, are you suggesting that you use the tig with the cover in place? I would suspect that that may cause some cooling problems.

    I see you have the Tigrunner with the integrated cooler originally built into the power supply. Have you upgraded to the Coolmate 3 mounted under the power supply?

    A lot of good looking "BLUE" equipment there.

    Charlie,
    Looks slick, Its good to see someone taking care of their stuff. As much as I like my equipment it seems to stay covered in coffee cups with old coffee and a layer of grinder dust in them.

    Default update

    I definately don't use the tig with the cover in place. It's permanely mounted so I just roll it up and stuff it under the mig rack. I've got the watercooled version, 250DX w/integrated cooler.
