    Default Welding Cart for Miller 211 with 2 cylinders

    I had a need to hold two cylinders and my new Miller 211 welder. I had a lot of fun building it and I think it turned out pretty cool.

    The frame is made by 1.25" square tubing and reinforced in the center because the thickness was only .065. The sheet metal I used was also .065 thickness. The 4" sides were 1/8" because I didn't feel confident that the .065 would hold up with the weight and constant movement over time. Plus, I always like to overbuild a little because I would rather not have problems in the future.

    I still have to make a handle for it, and a place to wrap the cords. I left the front of the bottom shelf open in case I decide later to put a pull-out drawer in it.

    This will be painted Miller blue of course.

    Hi, thanks for the comment. The fenders were totally an afterthought I had to protect the tires from sparks.

    Very clean. I like it! I also like the way you put the edge on the shelf.

    Hey Lindley, thank you for the comment. Glad you liked that, I think I'll start doing that with some more of my plans.

    Thank you for the compliment. I had some help from my father who is a cad designer so I was able to see it before I built it. Even then, I still made improvements as I went. Drawing it out is a key element for me to get my ideas on paper. It is cheaper than building what is in my head and then cutting, making changes, re-welding, etc. I have done that too.

    I make sketches of all my projects before starting. then, while constructing it seems the light goes on and come up with a better method or change.
