ID:	4591Ok here is project one for me. Ithougt it would be easier to start with a flat dolly that I had what a mistake. No matter how I turned it welder just would not sit right because had two pieces of angle in middle so had to cut off with o/a torch then weld 3/4" square tube braces in middle. Then started to build rack out of 1 1/2'x1/8" square tube for upper shelf and water cooler shelf. So here are some pics will post more as it comes together.

    Here are more pics you can see where I had to remove the two angles from center of dolly and rewelded one further back then add two 3/4" tube braces and 1/8"X2" down center. Frame is mainly 1 1/2" square tube the small square in back is for cooler, welder and hi freq. will sit on bottom shelf and I will put plate and sides on top shelf to hold helmet and tools. More to come.

    It looks good, I like teh idea of using what ya got. If we went out and bought all the material it would cost more than a store bought one. I was it Menards teh other day looking at tools and they had one for $59. I think Im getting close to that with my cart.

    Looks good, very functional, better to over build than to have a flimsy cart. Shop looks great \, what size is it? If I had a shop like that the first thing Id put in it after 220v and a compressor is a car hoist.

    I kinda like the welders on the bottom with the cart open on top like that. It could be used as a mobile tool cart if needed to.
