The title means just what it says
my little Miller 210 mig welder has been suffering from a gravel floor for far too long
very difficult to move around on the factory wheel kit
So I dug a few items out of my classed for reuse pile of scrap and made a cart that can be moved around very easy.
I started out with the front frame of a Toro walk behind mower
First up modify the frame work
Next cut the hubs out of the rear tires
then lengthen the forks for larger tires
he modified assembled cart frame
I managed to make 2 hubs out of 1 so this gave me 4 hubs
2 of these will be used on my torch cart later this week
here I have just welded the hub into the center of a doughnut spare tire these can be bought for next to nothing but I had 2 the same size just laying around
the finished cart may never win any beauty contests but it is very functional

One thing is for sure it rolls easy.
Later I plan on adding a shelf on the back with some bottle supports to add one of my cutting rigs to it this way I will have both welder and torch at hand at all times. I have 2 or 3 sets of bottles gauges hoses and torches that I am not using just now anyway
Never try to tell me it can't be done

Great build. Similar concept (though slightly more complex) as some of the "off road" floor jacks we've seen, like this one by am4x4 on Pirate4x4.com:
I'll bet she rolls like a champ. There are fewer things more frustrating than being a grown man, and forced to drag a wheeled cart over a rough surface. It makes you feel like a caveman who hasn't quite finished inventing the wheel.
