    Very Carefully. My fiberglassing is like my welding glob it on and grind it smooth.

    Smooth72,

    I could use a few lessons with fiberglass (welding myself. Got a 76' in the garage getting a new heart. After the greasy work is over I'd like to do some mods to the body then paint. 90,000 miles and garage kept for the past four years, but the origonal paint just keeps turning to dust.

    Built from scratch out of scrap stainless steel, all TIG welded.
    The bottom drawer is a homebuilt TIG cooler.
    The small tank on the back is the cooler reservoir, also stainless steel.

    Just curious, why are all the carts so tall?

    I have a Millermatic 150 on it's original cart, and it would fit under my bench if I didn't have a 80 ft^3 tank. I have been thinking of building a cart and laying the tank tank fown under it. The added length would package a nice gun, ground and power cord reel in front of the unit.

    I just got a used ESAB PCM 875 plasma and the cart it came on leaves the lines pretty messy and hanging out, so that's gonna get changed probably to a single side or top reel. I'm one of those guys that likes to make stuff out of busted car parts, I'd love to find a bent 10" racing wheel to make my reel out of.

    I guess I find it more useful to be able to tuck the welder and plasma under the bench when not needed. I am constantly running out of space in the shop, and lack the wall space for carts like all of you have built. DOn't get me wrong, all of them are very nice. Lots of thought put into all of them, just a philosophical Q.
    I agree that the reason most guys build taller carts is for comfort. My Thunderbolt is on a short cart, but I'm fixin to build a taller one, I'm close to 6'
    and my knees aren't too good so bending down isn't an option.

    It was an aqueous chemical dispense tank that was taken out of service. (The place I work at disposes of alot of cool stuff. That's where the stainless steel came from as well.) This one has a 3 gallon capacity. I have a few more in 3 gallon and some in 6 gallon.

    i never even thought about a keg, i think there is one out at the property in the contry my brother plays at i'll pop by tomarow and pick it up to see if it will fit the bill. i also have a lead on a bunch of SS sheet. so i'll work at it from all directions and settle for the best i can come up with .
    some day i'll be rich and famuse and i'll be able to just go buy the stuff i need, but that will probly take 1/2 the fun out of building stuff.
    ok maybee not.
