Default welding cart

i bought a new welder last week and was in need of a cart.
also, the hobart 187 only holds up to a 10# spool and i wanted the option to run a 33# or 44# spool if i wanted to.

so this is what i came up with. i have a total of $40 into it and that was for the rear tires and 5/8 rod to mount them. the rest i had laying around the garage.

Wayyyyy nicer than mine

One suggestion - if your garage is like mine, fabricate a cover for your outside spool - your liner will thank you!

How does the spool holder work? Also, How do you like that welder. I am planning on picking up that model soon.
