    i had the same problem as you do, too much yard not enough concreet under my welder.
    i got one of the garden wagons from walmart or tractor suply with the drop down sides and took off the sides and built a welder suport system on that. even added a droor to it to keep lil stuff in. here are a few pic's to get you some idea's to play with
    hope it helps.
    first pic is it with my tig on top, 2nd pic is it with the removable O/A setup on the back part. i use nylon 1" straps with D rings (like a motorcycle helmit ) to hold every thing in place. 3rd is the O/A setup off the cart, the O/A cart sits on the back and is held in place with pins. i will look for some better pic's but i have been using this cart for 5+ years now. so i knoe i have some better pic's
    4th just fond this one its a little more empty so you can get a beter look at the cart, the front has a cradle of sorts to strap in a bottle and the top platform was made with 3/4" angle with the L used as a ledge to keep stuff from rooling of if it was not level. i also sprayed the top and the inside of the droor with truck bed liner (like ryno liner) to make it durable and rust free.
    the best part about having a welder is not needing to spend $350.00 on some thing to hold it. his carts look nice but a bit over the top and way to high priced. just think about what you want it to do. make a quick ruff drawing of it look at it a bit and see if you see any thing you want to change, if not get out and build it. after all you can weld so if you decide later it needs to be a little diferent or get another welder you want it to carry, no biggy cut it up and start over, or just add a little here and there as needed. have some fun with it, dont be afraid to screw it up. you have a welder and a saw you can fix it.
    BTW; the droor was made from some sheet i had laying around, good chance to work on your corner welds on thin stuff.

    A little off the subject of building the cart---- but......... As far as the comment about hauling 10' lengths in the Subaru with the seats down. I have used a "Ru" wagon for my econo-material hauler for years- I made a removable front rack and haul all my lengths up top. Able to hual the 20 footers as long as they are not too thin and flimsy, if they are I just pick up a piece of angle and bungee them togeather in a few spots and strap it to the rack. 33 m.p.g. - $600 heavy hauler. I have built about 20 of these types of racks for the local hanggliding people who haul their gliders on their roof racks.
    thought people may find it interesting????? or maybe not ?

    You know want you don't want (Red Wagon) and you know what you need.The next step should be easy - design what you want and fabricate it. Once completed - share your project with the rest of us.

    Scrap Parts...

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't usually have access to things like junked riding mowers or piles of steel. Where do you guys get all of this stuff, and where do you keep it until your ready to use it?!?! My better half would have a fit if we just had piles of stuff lying around that you could see from the driveway or street. I still hear about how ugly my 40' shipping container looks to visitors, and its hiding behind a fence and some trees. (Maybe I just need to paint it the same color as the field behind it.)

    I did however find some scrap angle and some wheels so I'll be tinkering this weekend on some type of cart. Right after I weld up the frame for my gate.

    Shopping at the Restore.

    Garfish,

    Well I headed out to our local Restore. I was really looking for some cabinets for our dog rescue, and free steel, but sitting inside the door I spotted a familiar looking red box. I started to inquire about the red box. The man running the show said it was just dropped off and the person that donated it said he was using it last week. I ask to try it out and they gave me the go ahead. So a little tinkering to get the right plug and bam! Works like a champ.

    What I found was a older Lincoln AC/DC 225/125 stick machine. Even though the past owner said he used it just last week, I don't really believe it. The Ground clamp and Stinger holder were both brand new still in the bag. The machine was cover in dust and dirt, but still had a bow tied to it. The leads showed no sign of ever being attached to anything. I'm guessing it was a gift that was never used. I'm quite happy with my new/old $75 welder.

    I guess I'll just have to wait a little longer to break down and buy that Maxstar.

    Thanks for the advice,
    Chuck

    I'm a hack hobbyist. Go to the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore if you got one and you'll find all sorts of steel for next to nothing. Sometimes they just say, 'take it.' I got 2 bedframes yesterday. Also go to a dumpster dropoff in the county on Saturday and people drop off all sorts of stuff. Most landfills now have a swapshop of stuff they think people will haul away. Great source for metal, particular if you need a dead gas grill for a cutting table (per Vicegrip at Hobart Weldtalk) or black pipe, etc.

    Take an hacksaw with you to cut it down to fit in the vehicle if you dont have a p.u. I just put the seats down in my old Subaru wagon and I can get a 10' length in and still close the back.

    Granted and caution this kind of steel is mystery-meat sometimes, but for me it free or nearly and suitable to my needs. If I need something good, I buy from the local supplier.

    My wife asked the other day, How big is that pile gonna get?

    My personal feelings on this is all selling of goods should be done through ones private e-mail not advertised on a projects forum. With the exception of the host.
    Not to mention, if your product is good, someone will post your site.
    No anymosity, just my 2c.

    Apology

    I think my first reply sounded a little harsh. It was not meant to be.
    I was just trying to say the most gratifying thing about making something is designing and then creating your design. You already seem to know what you want, so you must have a vision. Put your vision on paper and then figure out your materials. Find some old lawn tractor and canabalize the wheels and axle. The rest is metal scrap or the start of your new metal bone yard. Since you already have the cart, all you need to do is frame it up. Keep the wheels at a nice wide stance with low center of gravity but keep your ground clearance.

    Somewhere I read the phrase:
    DREAM IT! WELD IT!
    Just can't seem to remember where??

    Maybe not plans..

    I guess I'm not really looking for plans, but more Ideas.

    I'm pretty new to world of welding. I took a class last year at the local community college and then bought my MM 175 used on a deal I couldn't pass up. I still hope to find a good deal on a AC/DC stick welder. I'd love to get a Maxstar so I could lean to TIG weld next semester, but right now It's a little out of my price range. But while I'm wishing, if I had a MM Passport, I wouldn't need to build a welding cart.

    Anyway, since I'm pretty new to this, my pile of steel is still pretty small. I have a few pieces that I used to build a frame for a gate, and some other stuff people have given to me. If I have a good idea what I'm going to build, I'll have better luck when I head out shopping for Steel.

    Plans?

    You don't need plans. Just whip out your tape measure and a pile of scrap and get to weldin'. This way you get what YOU want.
