    i would think for the dyn200 a simple shelf added to a standerd dolly would do the trick. just chain the small tank to the bottom and add a shelf above that for the dyn to sit on, maybee a hanger for a few cords and a tube for some filler. would be quick easy and verry portable.
    strap every thing down of corse.
    hope this helps.

    Patrick, I think I would build a cart typical of Billdacat of post #8, but for the front use the same wide track as the rear and use pneumatic casters as well, maybe lower the tray for the tig to reduce the top heavyness. The front leg could be created so as to fold up for trans. I assume your cylinder is typ. of his as well so should do well. For transporting the unit, maybe build a box w/the door at the end for easy access, mount to the rear fender well. I would mount a fire extinguisher as well.
    Good luck,

    bill has a good simple design but it lacks a good steering option or a long hall down to the docks. and larger tires (front) would be needed for the docks also.

    thanks for all the ideas/ i like the caster size and the open end/ yes the docks are steep and kinda rough /i really don't want to dump that kind of money in the lake/ they don't pay that well/ maby i should make it water proof and put flotation on it/ belive it or not?i almost lost my 180 sync. last year/ the lake was really low and the ramp was steep and wet/ 250 lbs is hard to hold/lost a batch of skin but not the welder ( with less than 20 hrs)that is when i decided on the dyn./also i won't for get the fire bottle thanks again from pat in texas

    Yeah James that is what I was trying to get across and the boat slips down here would not be easy to mobile w/out the larger tires due to the warping lumber that they use. The pic is of an offroad a fellow created that has the larger pneumatic caster I spoke of.
    BTW James, I also added a pic of my tig/plaz stacked unit I built several yrs. ago, unfortunately long before I started to frequent these weld forums. I certainly could have use a better idea, but both of these units are so heavy this seems like a good idea at the time,
    Good luck James and Patrick w/your projects

    i still think converting a dolly is the simplest way to get you mobil with tank and dyn. you could even use one of the fold down versions for taking up less space.

    i like that 6 wheeler.throw a motor on that bad boy and you could ride it to the job.
    here is my allterain version. i built it back when all i had was MIG and O/A but now with TIG, plasma MIG, and O/A its time to remake some carts. i realy want to seperate them all into indivigual carts of a smaller version so i can just pull in the one i need and park them all out of the way when not in use. also looking forward to making the TIG cart out of aluminum, just seems like a cool idea and good practice with the new TIG.

    first pic is it without the TA on it, as you can guess from the extra wheels on the O/A rack its removable. just pull a few pins and she lifts right off and is ready to role.the handle for the cart dose the same thing, i got tired of tripping over it.
    next pic is with the TA but no O/A (the TA is facing away)
    last pic is the front of my TA-185

    for now i have put the plasma on the shelf abouve the welding table, its got plenty of reach for most stuff but its not moble any more. put the TA-185 under the welding table as i also did with the MIG. so i have an empty cart, with any luck this will motivate me to get off my but and get started building carts.

    Default mini dyn. cart

    thanks for all the welder smarts/ can't believe it took me so long to find this site ( yes i can it took me 6 months to log on/ and only with my WONDERFUL wife doing it)/i'm into welding not puting / but with the dyn i can see it on the wall/all the ideas are great/Leons is that a walking beam axle ?/fun4 now/ i am swaying to the fold up dolly/some of the moving guys had really neat alum. two wheelers/my whole rig weights less than 60 lbs. and if i lay the bottle sideways it will be 24" long x16 " hi. x16 " w./ should be able to build a .060 alum box to enclose the welder and bottle/then with some quick couplers for hoses and dzus fastners for doors i should be able to disasemble load and reasemble quickly/i got a plastic box for the ped & leads with the welder/probably build an alum box for them also ( you ever try to put something back in one of those boxes?)thanks to all of you pat from texas
    p.s. fun4 now you know where i could get the the neat winter coats for the welders???? reeder @ aol.com --- to you and all melters
