    Inexpensive welder and grinder stand combo

    Having limited space, I am always trying to find ways to organize my tools. A few weeks ago I found myself dragging the welder to the middle of the floor and decided I needed to put it on wheels. Here is what I came up with!



    The cost was cheap, the handcart was a harbor freight special, the rest was mostly scrap. So far, I like it, not sure what I would change given the chance to make another.

    It's a neat idea, And not to rain on your parade but there are a couple of issues I could see with this setup.
    1: It looks to me that if you do any heavy grinding you're going to be chasing the grinder around having it on wheels.
    2: I'm not sure I would want all that grinding dust shooting down onto an electrical component, any plans to make a cover for the welder?

    I actually had the exact same thoughts when building it. The welder is heavy enough that it doesn't move when using the grinder, but I also have been leaving it up against the wall. As for the grinding dust, it is what it is, I have a small work place, so I am dealing with it best I can.
