View Full Version : Welding Cart... I call it "Cartzilla"
05-31-2008, 11:25 PM
This is a cart that I made recently. It's my second project. I did some windows before this. I looked over every cart I could find pictures of on this forum and the net and took the best of what I liked and then added some stuff of my own.
It's 1/8" 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" square tubing with a 1/2" top and drawer front. Fully powered, with on board grinders, tank, drawer, grounding bolts, etc.
Right now it's down at Andrews Powder Coating getting it's finishing touches: a "wet Black" finish.
Like I said, I call it Cartzilla. I'm interested to know what you guys think....

Definitely bomb proof! when the "Big one" hits, you'll be safe sitting next to it. Great design, well thought out. That looks like a piece of half inch plate on top. is it? and the drawer front as well? Did you make that squaring tool? I've never seen one for sale..I used to make my own. Great job, Dominic! :)
(Just saw your other post which answered my questions.)

Sorry... couldn't resist. Used to love that show!
Thanks for the props! If the big one hits I think that thing will suck up enough radiation that it will glow on it's for a few hundred thousand years.
Yeah, the squaring tools are for sale. Got them at a local welding shop. I really love 'em. Without a good, solid, level, and square table they're a necessity to keep things proper! When I bought 'em they only had 3 in stock. I should go down now and get another one so that I have 4 which would really help! (I should say that I saw them originally from some guy who was building his cart and posted pictures on the Miller Blogs)
Thanks again for the love.

Where is Andrews?

They are in Chatsworth, CA. I just got turned onto them from a guy near me that makes Pro Bike Frames. These guys are REALLY good, and they were super cool and had a really impressive operation. They took the time to give me the full tour and go completely through their philosophy and individual take on the process. Check them out if you have some time or just look at the website. They're all about quality. I dig it.
Can't wait to get my cart back from them!
