Any up for a challenge? I've never liked my cheap harbor frieght welding cart i bought with my welder. The cheap metal is bending and it doesnt roll very good in my driveway. So here is the challenge, design a welding cart out of a radio flyer wagon. 1 rule has to fit under my work bench so it cant be over 35" high.

heres my $20 wagon

here is a mock up

after some cleaning and removing the rotten sides, cutting hole in floor to keep the bottle under 35"

My thoughts welding a lower shelf to support the bottle, and carry misc, raising the welder up to railing hieght, some hooks for the cords, i kept a side support to use as a template to make new wood sides if i need.


So what are your ideas?

I'd also post this in the main forum to get more ideas but i type to slow.


Then these will be my next projects.
1st one use a old power wheel and combine it with a radio flyer, for a electric wagon. w/o the wood in the pic id use metal.

2nd a full on go kart radio flyer, i already bought some used go kart wheels and slicks and hubs.

I'd add a tower/frame to raise the welder to max allowable height with hooks on the sides to hold cables/hoses and maybe add a shelf to hold misc tools goggles welding helmet etc.

I'd also put the wood railings back on stepped the way you it's shown in your mock up :Thumbup:

Why do welders sit at a angle?
