Welding cart

Post  Posimoto on 12/1/2014, 8:24 pm

I built this welding cart from scrap metal and a 2 draw file cabinet I found on CL for $10. I added some shelving for my chop saw as well. I store my welding gear and tools in the cabinet.





Someone wanted it more then I did so I sold it. I found another 2 draw cabinet so I plan to build another one.

Great job on the cart,,that's the first thing I made when i got my welder, had to make mine smaller to fit in small garage.
I have a Miller welder also but it's a model 130 works ok for a 110 volt mig welder.

Thanks Mark, my next cart will be a bit more streamlined. The 211 is a good unit, able to run on either 110 or 220. I have 220 in my garage but the 110 is useful on jobs away from home.

Sweet! Very polished finish.

I'm taking a 10 hour a week welding course at a community college next semester and super excited about it, but not looking forward to having to purchase and make all the supplies needed after I'm finished, ha ha

I'm thinking the combo 220/110 will be what I end up with as well, as I've got both in the workshop at the moment.

Thanks, if you do decide on the Miller 211 you won't be disappointed.

That's a beautiful job.

Many years ago, when living in Florida, I decided I wanted to learn how to weld. No community colleges offered classes, so I posted up on JeepForum's "FL local" section and told them my desire. One guy knew an F.A.A. certified welder by the airport, and convinced Jony to teach us to weld. $50 out of pocket to the guy and the cost of a dimming helmet, and we got 6 Jeep guys in a welding shop for 2 nights x 4 hours each to learn. Seriously some of the best money I've ever spent.

Picked up a Hobart 140 a short time after, and have since built steering box skids, rear tire carriers, fixed Geoff's cargo rack, and a dozen things in between. Absolutely an invaluable skill.

/end rant.


Great rack.

Thanks Ryan,

Having a F.A.A certified welder personally teaching you was a good opportunity. Community colleges, and tech high schools that offer welding classes is a hit or miss. I enrolled in a autobody course at a tech HS a few years ago and was disappointed by the lack of enthusiasm and professionalism by the instructor. I later tried a different subject and tech HS, but ended with the same results. I'm not saying all night courses are like what I experienced rather it depends on the instructor, some care about their work, some are there to collect a paycheck.

I had the opportunity through work to enroll at no charge to an American Welders Association (AWA) certified 80 hour 2 week course. At the end of the course  was a written and physical exam. On the other hand, one could spend a few nights with some welding literature and videos and a weekend burning wire or stick and feel confident in their welding abilities.

This is the time of year I like to use my welder to make family members gifts.

I'll out for a hike in the woods I found the bike below and dragged it home.





And built a guitar  



Some others



2 spoons and a fork

I was lucky enough to have a class offered in High School for welding and auto tech so I took both of those. I need to pick up a welder so I can start fixing some crap and some small projects haha.
