Ok i got a Miller 225 Thunder Bolt stick for my birthday and some how i didnt measure right and though itd fit on the bottom tray of my cart ive built... well come to find out i built inbetween the trays bout 2"s too short for it to fit, so i was wondering if any of you guys have built a cart just for a stick welder, not for 2 or 3 other welders/plasma cutters and what not just for a stick welder.. I need some ideas on a cart just for this stick welder... i aint tryin to copy anyones work just looking for ideas so...

My older thunderbolt has a wheel kit and handle (you could fab both easily), making it a snap to roll around. Why add bulk and weight?:)

I agree....get two wheels ,an axle, and bend up some flat stock possibly add a couple hangers for the leads,power cord,and a hook for your hood.

I saw one set on an old lawnmower that was cool but this is a simple version.

Well... Last night i sat out in the garage, pondering, looking at the framing of the cart ive got complete,... and its gonna get an add on to it, im not gonna raise the distance between the top and bottom trays, ive came up w an idea that will work quite well, be neat and also quite diffrent... so once i get my 3rd tray built and all of it welded on ill post up some pics of what ive came up with.. :D

If you want to add your stick machine to the cart just lean it back.....
