    Welder & Plasma cutter cart

    Today I finished up the new welder cart I've been building. Got tired of using the rickety old Harbor Freight cart I had so I designed this one to meet my needs. It holds a mig welder and plasma cutter as well as an 80lb tank of C25 gas. I even tucked in a small inverter stick welder I have. A small plastic tool box on bottom rear shelf holds the consumables for both machines. Lots of hand made hooks for all the wires and leads.

    This is constructed of 1-1/4 16ga square steel tube for the main frame, 1" 16ga square tube for the handles and expanded metal for the shelves and back panels.

    A neat option about this cart most won't notice right away is that it rolls on 4 wheels for smooth surfaces or you can tip it back like a hand truck to roll on the large pnuematic tires for "rough terrain" like my yard. lol The machines and tank are securely mounted so they won't fall off or move during travel.

    The square tube/expanded metal theme was carried over from the welding table I recently made but a color change was made and choosing it was the hardest part!

    That looks like a work of art.
    Looks well thought out, but then you knew what you wanted and built it to the picture in your head.

    Well done matey. Top Marks. I like it.

    That's an 87 Jeep YJ wrangler but it's not on the drum. There are blocks behind, it's sitting on the lower shock mount.

    Doing some typical rusty frame repair.

    Sorry, I meant the thing that is on top of the brake drum. You have left something on the brake drum. In picture 1.
