  • OH.......Another.......Mig Cart

    Made several years ago. Works fine. If I had it to do over again, I would have sloped the top shelf up in the front, less bending over to make adjustments.

    Just a couple of things:

    Welder is bolted to shelf (spacer under case). Just one or two bolts could save a major disaster.

    I put at least one duplex outlet on nearly all similar projects. Can't have too many outlets.

    Gun tip rests inside plastic 35mm film canister, inside pipe, welded to side of cart. Bottom of pipe is partially open.

    Shelf for rear cylinder is bolted to back of cart (can easily be removed). Wood spacer between cylinders (cut to fit diameters). Contact surfaces are covered with rubber. Front cylinder is held in place with 1/2 diameter steel band, bolts to bracket with thumb screws. 1/2 diameter plate in front of front cylinder is covered with
    "slit" rubber hose.

          hey dave

          my only problem with your designs and projects is that you don't build them heavy enough...

          all your stuff would blow over ... in a hurricane !!!!! you must get paid by the pound Dave

          nice work

              Dave,
              Nice job. I have the standard Hobart cart for my HH175, But I would like to make a taller cart with a little more storage. I think I just found the design I need! Thanks.

                Great work Dave! I really like the tank set up. This looks like it will with stand the test of times. The torch holder is a good idea. I put a couple of those on my table. Works great for the welding torch and cutting torches.

                  Dave,Thats a nice cart,and the two cylinder setup is the only way to fly.The outlet was a very handy idea.Its not copyrighted is it?One of these days when I get a camera,I will have to add mine to the posts.The welder will kind of look out of place here though.(wrong color)

                    Dave, super nice cart...neat and no cables on the floor, just hate stepping on cables....Rocky D, That's next on the list just after getting the box on the top. Yes my cart will have the "textured " steel for handles and eveything else.

                      Real nice cart Dave,

                      What size castors did you use? I think mine are a bit too small. Does your cart turn without effort?

                        looks great Dave! I think you are running low on wire.

                          I bought my Yellow 7 outlet block from Walmart but have seen them at building suppy stores. One end has 3 prongs for 110V supply other end has outet, 2 outlets on frount and 2 outlets on both right and left side. It has thin plastic web between side outlets. Drill holes through side webs so block can be mounted on 2 studs welded to side of welding cart, & retained by wing nuts.

                          Works for me.

                            Al T,

                            The casters are 4-inch. It turns and rolls easily.

                              thanks Dave, I'm swapping my castors out. The 3 inch ones I'm using are hard rubber type and are terrible. I have some 4inch rubber coated swivel castors, cast iron type from HF. They came last week. I couldn't pass up 3.50 each.
