    Nice job, keep up the good ideas. I do have a small suggestion though. In pic #6, the way you have the torch cord warped will kink over time and could put undue stress on the wire feeder. Try to keep a good radius in it when hanging the cord.

    Crap, I hate it when I don't read all of the post before I respond. Sorry about the same thought.

    The problem I see with the storage on top is that you're gonna want to use that space to put your plasma cutter up there someday. And when you go to put small parts (like tips, etc) on it they will fall through the expanded.
    Nice work though.......

    Actually when that day comes it will be a good reason for another project "New Cart"

    Thanks

    Default MIG Cart Addition

    Hi, Garrett.
    Nice job. I know you will enjoy the improvements you made on the standard cart.
    I wonder if you have any problem changing wire, adjusting tension, etc.?
    Here is my version. The handle is bolted on in case I want to take it off in the future. The handle makes it much easier to move and manuver around. The lead hangers are great, and I can hang my helmet there to.

    yes #6 does have a hard bend but if you look at #8 i softened the bend a little. i will more than likely push the machine back some.

    thanks

    garrett,

    Do me a favor and reinstall the guards on those grinders (4 1/2" and 7").

    I've seen what a 7" grinder can do when it "gets away", and it's not pretty. I'd hate to see your welding progression stop because you lost the use of a hand or arm.

    Next time post a few more pictures.(Just kidding) looks good,but as mentioned by Sundown put those guards back on and leave the grinder accidents to the professionals.Gloves dont do no justice when a wire wheel or grinding disk meet.Maybe we should start a thread pertaining to grinding incidents.My last run in was last year while on my knees grinding a piece of metal on the ground.Grinder got lodged between the metal and my knee(which was being used as a hold down device) only for a split second but long enough to make a 1/4 inch gash in it.Then add to that I had to stich it up myself.(didnt have insurance.)Like the saying goes "If your going to be dumb you better be tough."
