Thread: Project 2 from d3javoodoo (Portable weld cart)

    Default Project 2 from d3javoodoo (Portable weld cart)

    Hello Forum...
    Here's another project of mine I put together shortly after my new Everlast Power Pro 256 arrived last spring. I managed to scrounge up enough pieces of scrap metal I had laying around to build a small, sturdy, portable cart for the new 256. Seems to work fine so far... gets the job done. However I do plan on adding sheet metal to enclose the lower half, & create a toolbox for tools, as well as designating space for a modified water cooler. I opted to build something as small as possible for ultra portability on those days when i have to take it to a jobsite. The cart measures 28"x10"x19", & stock was (3/16" thick x 1.5"crs). So far I've got about 4.5hrs. into it, & plan on seting aside @ least another 2-3hrs. for mods. As for gas, I prefer to use an extended hose for extra mobility now that I've got a trigger.

    with the dolly the whole setup is even more maneuverable than I expected...

    The next obvious step would be to maximize reservoir volume by fabricating a stainless, or aluminum box like reservoir that would fit more precisely in the rear of the lower cart. Then I may, or may not box in the enclosure.....
