    Default Welding cart question...

    I apologize if this is a repeat question. I just picked up a new Millermatic 211. My first project will be a nice cart with big tire since i live on a farm and will use this outside alot. Now for the question...

    What is the or is there a proper angle to mount the welder so as to minimize problems with the argon flow?

    thanks in advance for your assistance...

    Cool

    The Argon will flow anyway you put it. I have a 20' hose from my argon/co2/75-25 tanks to my welder. I don't want to drag around 3 bottles on the back of the welder...Bob

    thanks for the info. i noticed some negative comments bout the extreme angles some other people had their machines on the cart. i wanted to be safe rather than sorry.

    Cool

    I guess some guys do tilt the fronts of the welders up pretty steep. I would just mount it flat if it was mine...Bob

    I just finished on for mine with basicly the same need to be able to move it around outside or take it with me. Just the other day I picked it up with the tractor and when down to Mom's hose and built some security bars for her front door. You can see all the pics and info a page or two in under MM211 welding cart if you like. I built it to have everything right there were I was using it.211 Welder cart.jpg

    How about the argon bottle itself ? Can you use one while its horizontal on its side as long as the flow meter is vertical?

    As far as I know the only bottles you can't lay down are Argon and Propane for cutting as they are both a liquid in the bottle and you are using the gas fumes off the top of the liquid, as for shielding gasses (the common ones anyway) they are just compressed gas.
