    Default What can i build with a old shopping cart?

    My buddy at the scrap place had a couple ole shopping carts and asked if i could use them. All the wheels work well, so i took em. Now i dont know why i want them...Anyone have any ideas what a shopping cart can be used for?

    a Mig/Tig cart with bottle holder and filler rod holders. You can also attatch a drawer for consumables or hand grinder storage, along with a self retracting spool for an extension cord to run it. Your only limit is your imagination.

    Ya, thats what i was thinkin since my chinese mig cart is so weak it feels like its gonna bend in half every time i pull it. How could i balance it so the bottle doesnt tip it?

    Hi Leeboy,

    Default shopping cart uses

    Hope ya got a since of humor The best people to ask might be Johnny Knoxville and Wee Man. LOL! JK!

    one ideal comes to mind of a project that might not be real useful unless you are a trapper.

    Using two baskets I built a collection cage For a government trapper in West Texas quite a few years back for Temporarily holding a small bob cat to collect the urine for trapping, worked out pretty well didn't own a camera back then or I would post picís.

    Thats actualy a good idea for a thread on all the uses of old shopping baskets
    I'm sure there are alot of uses other than what they were intended for.
