    I think some of the designs by members of this forum for the smaller machines that include a FILING CABINET are very useful for storage of gloves, welding consumables, welding helmet and lenses, extra wire spools. argon cylinder cap etc., to keep the grinding dust off are the best I have seen.

    Here is my cart for my Miller Syncrowave 200 with Coolmate 1 cooler.

    Thanks Donald,

    That was the intended use for it.. I can do the "Outback" of the shop without having to use warp drive . I have 65' of main lead and a 25' torch.. I sure love how the unit blows through 1/2" plate...

    Default Welding cart

    Here is a cart I built to help protect the machine. The guys that use these out on the jobsites are rough on equipment. The electrical panel and plugs were added for running multiple drills and grinders that were used at the same time. The other is just a cart I built for my dad for his b-day.

    What is the recommended material thickness for making a cart with a MM140?

    The material thickness also depends on what shape of material (angle, box, sheet, etc.). I like working with 16 ga 1 inch square tubing, it's overkill for a cart to hold a small welder though. You could go 16 ga angle and it will still be plenty strong.

    22 ga sheet is strong enough for a shelf, but may bow if not supported in the and not welded to the frame well. You can go up in thickness or design so that there is support brace under the machine.

    If you are going to ever run gas I suggest that you design the cart for a good size bottle (48 inch tall or larger). The upfront cost of the bottle will be a little higher but the lower cost per unit of gas will pay that off.

    See the link below for a bunch of pictures of the cart I am building (almost done except for paint) for my stick welder but with storage and a grid-type welding table on top. I need to conserve space to making things do more than one thing at a time is a good deal for me.

    I will most likely use angle.

    Talk about weird I set up my spectrum 625 with the same exact cart!!! Got lucky and my dad gave it to me. Ripped all the electrical guts out and now have my mig on top with the 625 below. going to add a mount for the argon bottle.
