99% done with my weld/plasma cart!

So like the title says, I have been working on this gem for the past few days. Aside from the cabinet it is all made from random scrap I sourced from work. Frame is 1"X2" rectangle tubing. My HF cart couldn't handle the weight of the welder and plasma plus this helps keep my consumables and tools (grinder, cutoff wheels, vise grips etc) in order. I have to add a few more things, like some sort of cord management and maybe a handle. Just wanted to show off a few pics and get some input. Whatcha guys think?!

That's a great cart! Well thought out and kept simple... the way it is supposed to be.

Take care,

Check out "YJ V6 Conversion" if you want to see a frame up restoration of my 1992 YJ.

Check out "WWII Jeep Photos AND Restoration of..." if you want to see the original JEEP in action...

Thank you!

I have the empty spot on the back next to the C25 bottle for full argon. Once that bottle is in place it will all flow much nicer.

Thanks! I don't want to paint it until I am done adding stuff. Yesterday I added a handle, and I'm debating on what type of top I want for the box. Then I gotta decide what color to paint it all.....

Nice job! I really like the idea of using a tool box or cabinet. Great way to help keep tools clean.

Thanks! I just got a new snap on box so I had this as a spare. Figured I'd use it for something! On some other forums I have seen people use old filing cabinets with their welders on top. I kinda took that idea and went crazy with it
