    Default O/A cart - something a bit different

    OK, here's my first project post. This Oxy-Acetylene cart is my 4th project with my MM180. I'm particularly pleased with the unique design and fairly decent execution.

    Made for 80 and 75 cf tanks, this cart is fairly overbuilt, with 1 1/2 x 3 x 1/8 rectangular tubing, 3 x 3 x 1/8 square tubing, and 1/4 plate as primary components. Most steel came from the scrapyard for around $20. The wheels were slightly more expensive. I had originally run the axle inside the frame, but didn't like the balance. So, I welded on external ears and foot bars.

    There's a haze of loose red overspray on the floor, even though I did the spray painting on a canvas dropcloth at the other end of the shop; it was bloody cold outside!

    best I've seen.

    Default Thanks guys...

    I appreciate the kind words.

    Headnut, I had to look up Villa Rica on the map. Looks like you could make a quick run into Atlanta, if needbe. Heh, I so try to avoid that! I'm down in Columbus, and get my stuff from Jones, also good guys. I have been to Carrolton a few times, having bought my Kawasaki cruiser at CycleWorks, still more good guys.

    Nice looking cart, most people(myself included) throw something together to get by with. Having the intention of doing something better later.
    Good to see you did it right to start with.

    Very nice professional job. I would rather overbuild than underbuild then you won't have to rebuild (hopefully).

    Talking No chance . . .

    No chance you would have dimensioned drawings, plans or more pictures . . .
    I would really like to build one . . . It looks well balanced and sturdy.

    I considered building one similar with the addition of a third point to the rear with a a small "dullie" wheel so it could be rolled without HAVING to support the weight. Like a small "wheelie" bar with a small dual wheel on it . . .

    Not sure if making the "dullie" pivot out on it's own when ever the cart is leaned back in preparation for moving . . . Suggestions appreciated . .

    Again, that is a very impressive looking cart . . . .
