A while ago I was given a stand up style showing cart that I modified into a welding cart. The first pic is the old version of the cart. It was great. Held everything.

UPDATE:
My old cart got a facelift.
My neighbor and I nicknamed this newer version of the cart the “World’s BEST Welding Cart in the History of the World EVER”. Yes, I said world twice on purpose. Very tongue in cheek!
I needed to update the cart to make room for a second welder. The new welder is an Eastwood 200A MIG + STICK and uses a 220 plug.

So I cut up the old cart and used some scrap angle iron to build shelves etc.
Here’s a short VIDEO OF THE CART.

The “IV POLE” is very helpful in keeping my ground cables and torches organized. There’s a few hooks on the back side for winding the electrical cords. Best of all, I can now access the side doors to the welder to check on wire feed and wire supply whenever I need.

Anyway, my neighbor is a welder and he came over to lend a hand and some ideas. I had trouble getting the torch away from him, and IT’S MY WELDER!

I think I have a few side jobs if your neighbor isn't busy . Nice cart, I have one from HF, it does the job but doesn't have enough storage.

The single-wide carts are easier to get into tight places but the cart I made fits my needs. HF has a really nice price on a welding table. You can’t make your own for that unless you are given free steel.

The greatest teacher failure is.
I love building things with my welder for my welder too! Nice job, Jay.
