Finally finished the cart off with some lead hangers and a paint job.

Very nice!

I'd like to ask what the dimensions are? Mainly interested in the width. I am interested in a single tank cart, and would like something narrower than 24", which most of the 2 tank carts are. Your cart looks stable with a single tank.

Ideally I'd like to have a small table that could flip up, or be stored on the cart to be used for welding on, that way it would be a complete mobile solution. I don't know if that is asking too much or not, but could always use a Nomad type table if needed.

The cart is 13 1/2” wide not including the hangers. With the wheels on it is 38 1/4” tall, each shelf is 16” apart. I built the shelves out of 3/4” square tubing and welded the 1/8” plate inside of the Square tubing making kindof a tray so that if for some reason anything shifts it won’t fall off. The sheet I used to cut out the decorative sides was 1/8” pickle oiled hot rolled steel. Basically the same as hot rolled but they dip it in acid to remove the slag so it has that cold rolled shine. I went with it since it was as cheap as normal hot rolled but I wouldn’t have to do a lot of carbon clean up. It roles really nicely. I used Caster’s from northern tool and some pneumatic lawn mower wheels for the rear. Not including the tank it has about 110 lbs of equipment on it. I was worried with the design it would want to tip especially without the tank but it doesn’t.

Yes, I like that size Graveyard. I'm been pondering something narrower than 24" for a single tank, this looks stable.

What size tank is that, it looks like a 330cfm possible?

Looks really nice.

I have a 125cfm, so this size cart would be perfect for me. Thanks again for sharing!

Graveyard,

Stumbled on your IG page and must say you do some really nice work! 8-) I stumbled upon your page after looking at the unobtaniumwelding page...so I have to ask, are you guys cornerng the market on beautiful tig welds up there in Alberta? :lol:

And it looked like your beautiful Shepard approved of the cart...

Hats off to you, nice work.
