Welding cart
1 Attachment(s)
My old mig cart was made from bed frames cut up and welded together. Yes, it was cheaper. It also left much to be desired.

This past weekend, I bought one of these:
Craftsman 2 Tray Service Cart

They were on sale for $40. I would watch Sears for the price to drop again.

After I put it together, I had a thought: Why not cut a hold in the top tray for the air tank? So, I did. I cut a hose and used that for the edge of the hole.

Nice, easy, cheap welding cart. If I had to do it again, I would've put the hole on the other side. I'll just switch the handle one of these days

I picked up another, since the stick welder will fit on the bottom shelf. I just have to put it together around the welder.

Saw a new design for a cheap welding cart that used to C sections of tubing to give it a lot of rigidity. My cheap cart was a starting point and I needed to weld on reinforcing straps to keep it from wobbling when pulled around. I always end up adding a tube for rods as well so every cart is only a starting point.

Mig Welding Cart, Old to New!
I like what you did with that Mig Cart. For $40 bucks isn't a bad deal. Just wanted to let everyone in on a newer model for about $45 bucks I found. You could find em on ebay for probably $40, but they look durable, and useful. :cool:
