    off to go find my therapy tapes to listen to again - now I think I want the 211 all over again!
    You know YOU WANT ONE ! 211 ! I am not SORRY for posting that ! I'am sorry about hijacking the cart thread. There is a thread on another site where a guy is selling his 180 to buy a 211. The 110 volt feature alone will convince you. Admit
    it, IT'S A DONE DEAL ! Please do not deprive YOURSELF of what you really want.

    Nice cart, you need to find a better place to buy steel though! That is a lot of money for that little bit of tubing.

Unless you use it to build a Trebuchet, then it might go somewhere. Looks like a handy addition to your new MIG. Add bigger wheels for easier manuvering.
    The bottom space is reserved for my stick welder just haven't mounted it down there yet.

    Oh.. i got about 10 foot of steel left over. My cost assessment was for steel that was used, roll of flux wire, wheels, and paint.

    Your cart looks very nice. Just out of curiosity, is your welder secured to the cart?

    Stop thinking about the 211. Be the happy owner of a 180. After your class and a few projects you are going to want to drop the extra money on the MM252 and that 180 will only get used when you have to drag it off to your friends house to weld something. May as well get some use out of it before that happens.
    BTW I know of what I say. I started out as a hobbyist who had a few classes in high school, bought a MM185, left my corporate job and opened a welding and fab company and now own 7 different welders. Once you're hooked, you're hooked. Pretty soon you'll be pawning the wife jewelry to buy welding stuff. Good luck, start saving for the 252, but then after that is the MM350p. You are going to want that eventually, so you may as well skip the 252 and go straight to the pulsing monster!

    Yes, it's mounted with 4 self tapping screws through the cross supports under the welder.
