So I had this old cart laying around and decided it was taking up room and so was my welder. Why not combine them to free up some room???



Tore out the drawers. Thinking I might be able to do something with them to. Maybe mount them under my bench??



Cut the cart down.



Weld on some tabs to keep the welder from sliding off the cart.







Some of the tools hanging/stuck on. Probably use the bottom shelf for my welding jacket and helmet.







Painted..

That's a nice machine you got there, love mine, with da bottle.

Cart came out real nice.

I put all my magnets and other junk on that bottom shelf. After you wrap around the gun, the ground, and the power cables for storage you won't be able to get to stuff up top. If you add a bottle you can put the helmet and welding clothes on that.

Well at the time I don't have a bottle although it is in the near future. My plan is to set the bottle behind the welder. That is why I left so much room.



Shadow I have used it a bit and I have to say I like it. It is the 187 model which is the 220 volt machine.

Nice welder stand 79f150, with a ratchet strap on either of the rear arms to hold the bottle it will work great. When i built mine in the mid 90's i went to a scuba place and got an old tank holder that was no longer safe to use for scuba work and bolted it up to mine. It works great for holding the tanks.

Not a bad idea.. I am also thinking of cutting a hole in the top shelf and let the bottle slid down to the low self.(depending on bottle hight?)

I think setting the bottle on the low shelf is a very good idea. It would be very top heavy otherwise.

Nice table and welding cart guys.

No fullsize right now, but acquired an uncut I could not resist!

Now you're cooking!

You got the solid core wire? And read directions on proper hookup. On our hobarts (at least on mine, it's a bit older since it's a 175) you have to open up the cover and reverse your polarity for mig vs. flux core/shielded wire. I just did it all when I changed to a big ol spool of solid .035 wire.

Unless you weld a lot, you'll love the tank size and getting a big 11 lb spool. I'm finally getting a low on both, maybe this year I'll actually need a refill (been about 4yrs since I don't weld that much).

remember mine, complete with tennis racket handle:

Yep picked up an 11lb roll of solid .035 and the tank at the same time. I have been welding a bit around here with the flux core (thicker metals) to get back in the swing of welding.

couldnt find a 6mm 12 point scoket so i bought an el cheapo 6mm wrench and bent it. but i couldnt get enough leverage so i cut the end off and welded it to a 1/4" socket.


before i had quick access to a trailer to haul my lawn equipment i would pull it all behind the mower in a cart. but i needed a pushmower too. so i added a hitch to the cart and made this.

and it stands up for storage.
