    For a welding cart, I like using a small roll around tool box. The drawers are handy to have for all the torch parts. I move the bottle around with a small hand truck. Sometimes I stick weld, so not having to move the bottle around everywhere is OK with me.

    Not trying to go further off track, but the lap disks, how thick are they, do they need a backing plate?

    I haven't used them but seen them before. They look like thick paper. Along the lines of Emory cloth. They don't use a backing plate. Usually used flexible for polishing or sanding.

    Check ebay they have a bunch for sale and it can give you some pics...

    Update: An 85 lb box was delivered to my place this afternoon. Too bad 'cause I'm 1100 miles away right now. Would otherwise be out in the groj unpacking and admiring the fresh green paint. Home in a few days. I'll tend to it then. In the meantime I'm thinking of all the metal things I'm going to melt together.

    Don't you worry yourself one bit. Just let me know your address and where you put the spare key and I'll make sure your package is put in a "safe place" ....

    Congrats on your purchase! Melt some metal when you get back and take some pictures for the rest of us.
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    Too late, I'm home.

    Opened the box yesterday and checked for damage. For the benefit of the folks at Everlas, there was none, though the shipping box had clearly been dragged around by the guys in the brown truck and it showed evidence of spending a lot of time on its side, which the package was not designed for. Perhaps some stickers "This side up" and "Glass" would be helpful.

    Spent some time looking at the PP256 and my old MIG cart. The 256 is about the same size and weight as the MIG, and can stack on top of it without becoming too to-heavy. Will post pics as I proceed.

    I need to find out who at Everlast to complain to. The PM feature doesn't seem to be working anymore. I didn't get your note with your address ....

    Had to chuckle when I read that. I've heard of people who have seen the guys in brown "rolling" boxes of furniture end onto end down the block to deliver it. Not all of them are like that but some of these guys don't / won't read the labels.

    There's no reason for them to--their job is to get it there, that's it.

    I had a friend who worked at a UPS distribution center for a few months unloading/loading trucks. They'd run over something on accident with a fork lift and laugh/ship it on through.

    "Fragile" they called "projectile" and threw them harder. The goal was to get a glass shattering sound out of whatever was in the box.

    Not saying everyone there is like that--but you better package your stuff good, because they're going to move it in the fastest way possible regardless of whether it damages it

    Yeah, you're probably right. I'm probably expecting that they actually care. The foam pieces covering the front and back bezel did their job, as did the one on the "bottom" of the box that the welder stands on (when it's upright).

    Haven't yet applied power to it. This weekend . . .

    Got my tungsten and filler rods in from McMaster.com 16 hours after I placed my order. Their truck stops by my work, so that's a no-brainer. Last time I went by the local welding supply shoppe, they had plenty of SMA rod and plenty of MIG wire, but nothing remotely TIG-like. And their prices are always higher than I can buy online, so . . .
