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!
