I was bored...

...didnt wanna work on the '50, kinda fed up with it right now, so I built this little welding cart. I always had my welder on the workbench but lately it's been very unversatile. A buddy needs me to weld in rockers in his Cougar and I dont wanna drag my welder across the floor everytime. Built out of scrap steel tubing, and some wheels I got of an old golfing bag at the rear with swivel wheels (that I cut off from a shopping cart) at the front. Enough hooks for all my wires etc. Simple and boring but I thought I'd post anyways.

Take care,

Mike

Looks similar to one I built. I bought some pipe to use as the legs and frame, angle iron for the top for the welder to sit on, and pops gave me some casters for the front, and put lawnmower wheels on the back, also have the bottom part of the frame go out past the legs a little ways so when I finally get around to getting a gas bottle I can put it and chain it there. Its crazy how much they want for a cart if you actually buy one.

I made one too. I never got around to painting it though. IT's been four years.

Yeah buying one shouldnt even be an option if you have a welder (which obviously you'll have if you need a cart for it) and some miniscule skills.
Kevin, the '50 is doing great, I still drive it every day, it just needs TONS of small things, and it seems a bit overwhelming. I have about 10 leaks to fix, tune up the engine and find the leak at the engine which I cant seem to find, my mufflers falling off, need new shackles. Nothing mayor, just a ton of small details that add up in the end and contribute to a big picture. Just gonna take a break for a week...

Good job on the cart.

Don't blame you on taking a break form working on the '50. I took a break from messing with the general for awhile. Now Im moved down here, and have access to a welder and all the stuff I need to finish the body work and maybe even paint it myself, and a 454 block and countless other stuff for it....and now I dont have the time for it.

Oh well, keep up the good work dude.


Brad

Good work on the cart. Don't let all the little things get you down. Take a break and then work on one thing at a time. If you get bogged down on one job like the engine leak work on something else. When done that job take a look at the engine again. You will probably figure out were to look whileyou were doing the other job. Good luck - only eight weeks of school left.
