    Default Another aluminium welding cart

    Originally posted back in January but got lost in the forum software update…


    I see plenty of folks building welding carts here and especially like Dave’s diamond plate job.

    I was originally going to build one from steel but since receiving my PowerPro 205, I’ve gotten the aluminium welding bug. A good friend of mine constructed a TIG cart from square aluminium tubing a while back so I decided to go the same route and get in some welding practice.

    First job was to build the frame out of 25x25x3mm square tube. This used about 15m of tube. Bends were done on my mate’s home-made bender.

    Next came the sheet work. Shelves are cut out of 3mm sheet. I also added a piece of 6mm plate to mount the air regulator and another piece to secure the gas cylinder. The cable hangers are formed out of 12mm round bar.

    So here we have the finished cart. My new Everlast PP205 is angled back at 17° and my portable lightweight DC Tig/Stick welder sits on the flat shelf. I still have to add a bin to the bottom shelf to store my helmet, jacket, and gloves.

    This is my mate’s Tig cart that gave me the inspiration. His cart houses an EWM Triton 220 Tig along with a nice Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 52 plasma.

    Hopefully our carts will give you some ideas.

    Chris,

    Very nice cart, sure I probably mentioned that in the thread that was lost in our forum conversion. Thanks for re-posting. I'm sure all the members would want to see your work. I like the wheels all under the cart (on the new one) so not catch things and making it less wide. Guess with a bottle back there you need a little more wheel.
