  • New Welder Cart

    You guy made so much fun at my previous welder cart, that I decided to build a better one. I didn't take the time to photograph every step, mainly cause I designed it as I went. Normally, I draw everything out to scale first, so that I can correct mistakes on paper, first, but this time, because of some convoluted angles, I didn't. So what you will see is the as-welded product, all loaded up. I will try, if it doesn't rain tomorrow, to get more pictures of it unloaded.

          Close up of the grinder rack

            Close up of the hinged tray...I had to make it hinged so that I can get at the grab handle on the welder. I tiied to think of all the tools I use in most jobs and build a place for them on the cart, that will be easy to reach...I forever using a tool one minute, and then the next, it dissapears.

            I have two quad outlets, one mounted underneath the welder shelf, to plug the machines into, and the other on the front to plug the grinders into and any other tool I might be using.

            I didn't have room for the kitchen sink, tho

                    Nice cart, you and I think on the same lines, why bend down to get anything. I too add the tray tops for my gringer and what such saves on the back.

                    The only defferance from mine is I like to angle the machines so you can acess the connectors and the controls with out moving around much.

                    Real nice set up.

                        Rocky, nice cart; simle design, strong and not over-built. Two comments:

                        How do you like the Milwaukee grinder?

                        Isn't it about time to get a 21st Century hood?

                          Rocky, I'd ignore that nasty comment about the 21st century hood, and spend the money one of those fancy hoods cost on a pair of gear motors. You could mount 1 on each rear wheel and make that cart self propelled.
                          I'd love to have all that open floor space.

                            Nice cart Rocky. Seem to be short a few safety guards on the grinders thou.
