Brief Description:  Welding Torch Cart

Now that I've picked up a torch set I am going to need gas bottles, and a place to keep them. I've priced several models locally... some were better than others, and with quality comes a price, many in excess of $100. I considered building one myself, but how would I weld if I didn't have a safe place to keep my fuel? Plus, once I figured the cost of materials and my time, $100 was starting to seem like a good deal. I put a request on Craigslist for a gas cart and the next day I had an e-mail from a neighbor (literally on the next street)... he offered me a used cart for $85. Tyler and I went over to have a look, and while it was a little rough around the edges, it seemed to be made of heavy gauge materials and very sturdy. I informed the seller that I could have a new cart from a seller on e-bay for $75, and I offered him $70. He accepted, so I brought it home.

A label on the tool tray indicates that it is a Dayton model 5Z082. It has 10" solid steel disk wheels with semi pneumatic rubber tread, which is probably much better than the bicycle tire models I was considering. A quick hose down and it should do a fine job holding my welding rig.

Just a quick follow up... I searched for this model online and found that Grainger and DrillSpot both sell it for $187.50. Not a bad deal at all for $70.
