    Default My new 175 cart with dual bottles.

    I wasn't completely happy with the stock cart for my needs so I made my own and added a few things to it.

    And in DeWalt yellow, too! VERY BEAUTIFUL!! Can you make me one for my new Passport? Pretty please?

    Do you have room to open the wirefeeder door without taking everything off the lead spooler next to it?

    Not with the cord wound up. When it is in use the cord is not wound up like that and it opens easily.


    The round holder has a container of tip dip in there.

    Also my gun is not shown because I sold it and got a killer deal on a 15' roughneck gun which is much easier to get parts locally for.

    Here is what I have on the cart.

    I used most of the old cart for the shelves and the handles but the rest is all 1" square 1/8" wall.

    The second tank is Argon for the spoolgun (RWII) in the pelican case on the bottom for doing Aluminum and the larger bottle is argoshield (25C) (20% Argon 80% Co2).

    I made it so that controls are all near eye level as well as the side panel for ease of changing rolls and working the drive rollers. Plus I plan to build a work bench very soon and I want everything at or near the same height. I also have a 15" gun and a 20" ground.

    I want to add 2 more T's near the large tank to carry all my clamps. I also plan to add a plasma to the base and a air hose reel to the bottom for connecting to the compressor with a build it air drier/filter.

    Tools that are on the cart now besides what is easy to see.
    - 4 magnetic corner clamp
    - 1 mig plyers
    - 1 12" round ******* file for cleaning the nozzle
    - 2 bessy 12" clamps
    - 2 bessy 6" clamps
    - 2 bessy 8" clamps
    - 12 butt welding clamps
    - 2 squares
    - 1 magnetic level
    - 1 magnetic angle finder
    - 3 or 4 various wire brushes
    - 3 pairs of gloves (1 pair of welding ONLY gloves)
    - 1 shade 5 goggles for grinding
    - ear plugs
    - 2 tape measures
    - 1 metal ruler
    - 2 spanners for the angle grinder
    - and LOT different grinding/cutting/flapper wheel/wire wheel/velcro sanding disks

    I'd be interested in verifying that. Do you have the percentages swapped? And then, wouldn't that be C-20?

    Very much so. I have a large project in the works for this summer and it should do everything I need it too and more, it has so far.








    The design has been re-worked a bit and I just picked up the tubing on Monday. 460' of various sizes of DOM and ERW.
