    Welding Cart... Ideas Space Saving.

    Shop space is limited

    I have

    Miller 211 "Mig"
    Miller Diversion 180 "Tig"
    Soon Either a 625 or Hypertherm 65 'Plasma"

    3 Cylinders Argon, CO2, & Mig Mix,

    Looking to make a Cart that holds it all is as Compact as possible with accessibility.

    Just looking for Ideas maybe someone has built one for this combo.

    There is something you should realize the operation of plasma cutting produces lot of very fine metallic dust. I mean close to baby powder like and it gets into everything. I would not want to have the 3 items you are thinking about combining on a single cart. I have Mig, Tig,and water cooler on one cart with 2 cylinders, And my PM65 is on a separate cart. Most of the time the plasma is attached to my CNC table which has a water table to collect the dust. If I hand cut plasma it is far from the other cart.

    Harbor Freight just came out with a cart designed to hold three welders. I think its called their Vulcan line.

    Contract_Pilot,

    While it may sound good in theory to get everything on one cart it's been my experience that doesn't always turn out to be as nifty in practice as what you'd hoped it'd be. I think you should give serious consideration to leaving the bottles off the cart all together and keeping them secured against the wall. Then get enough hose and some quick disconnects to reach out to what ever machine you need to be using. If you can afford to have a regulator / flow meter for each of your different bottles it'll make changing between gas mixes quick and simple.

    Boy howdy, that looks like if you took the bottle off it, it would want to tip backwards real easy.

    Re: Welding Cart... Ideas Space Saving.

    I used an old tool box for my MM 180s cart, it's worked out well for me, if I take the welding machine off I put a block of wood under the bottle to keep the cart and bottle from tilting, but I never take the machine off.

    Re: Welding Cart... Ideas Space Saving.

    Limited space you say? My entire shop is 12' x 16'. I borrowed the basic design from the welding carts at school. I scaled it down slightly for my needs. I suggest using casters that swivel. Having a couple stationary ones makes it harder to maneuver a cart into & out of tight spaces. My machines stay covered/protected until they get fired up. I disrobed them for this pic lol

    Nope, the weight of the welder & cooler is centered above the axle. All the cables, rod storage & tungsten grinder is in front of the axle. It is easier to tip back without a bottle but it wont fall over. The only time it doesn't have a bottle on is when im changing it.

    I like it..simple and easy to move around.

    I may build a small one similar to yours. I like the handle you made to push it around with and the cable hangers.

    Considering how much the machine weighs it moves around the shop effortlessly. There is plenty of storage room in the box under the machine and on the expanded metal shelf for the pedal and cables.

    Mine's only two bottles, a welder and a plasma cutter, but if I did a shelf instead of drawer out could fit another machine...

    I have the same hand cart(tractor supply) that I have been sizing up for a cart for my Lincoln 210. I like the two wheel design because of the small footprint. Well done.

    Re: Welding Cart... Ideas Space Saving.

    I have a similar need, but for a Lincoln 200SW and a bottle, and misc. tools- but it has to roll over gravel- so big wheels are a necessity. Anybody have favorites for wheels and castors for gravel?

    Re: Welding Cart... Ideas Space Saving.

    I have the same issue. MIG, TIG, plasma, and four bottles. I took my cart and added some frame above to be able to lift the thing into my truck, and to have a cover. I still need to make the cover.

    I have never found a caster that works good in gravel. Thats one teason I use the hand truck design. This is my 2 carts. The one with the XMT 304, suitsase & plasma I just lean it back & get it off the big cart to take it outside. I have 150ft of gas hose. When I work out of my trailer I leave the gas cylinders in the trailer.

Welder Cart

All terrain welding cart build

I appreciate the input. I did decide to go ahead and at least make a version 1.0 to at least get me going.

Welding%20Cart_zpsuqsi3myr.png


This started as the HF garden cart in my original post. I took the wheels of my HF mig cart, and cut a few inches off the back and bolted it down to the back of the car. It has to be on either the front or back so I can easily get to the controls. I decided that I will not be getting bottles larger than about 80cf, so this should help with the balance. I welded the bottle carrier up out of 1" 16ga square tubing and bolted it to the cart frame as well. I shortened the wagon by about 13" as well.

The tool boxes store my welding gear, clamps, magnets, and a pair of 4.5" angle grinders. I have plans to build a rack to hold the toolboxes so I can get one out of the stack without taking them all apart.

It does have some problems. The center of gravity is fairly high so tipping is a possibility, but realistically I am just using this to haul everything from the back yard shed to the driveway where I can work, dragging it over landscaping gravel that is pretty level. It keeps most of my welding related stuff in one place and is much easier to get things out and put them away.

I will probably widen the wheelbase on the rear wheels as was suggested by bsaint earlier in the thread.

Thanks everyone for your input.

Lee
