Portable Work Station


This is my portable work station I made with my Lincoln Precision TIG® 185 (current model is Precision TIG® 225) and Pro-MIG® 175 wire feeder welder (current model is Pro-MIG® 180). All the metal used in this project was recycled material from the garbage. I am a private sanitation engineer (I like the term "garboligist") in the New York City area and I build hot rods in my free time. My work area for building cars consists of the basement and the side of my house (there is no garage).

When I first got your Precision TIG® 185 welder I was unsure of using it. I went to your welding school which was very helpful. It really inspired me to weld everything for everybody!

I needed a place to put my metal shear, panel puncher, shrinker and stretcher, vise, and grinder. I decided to use recycled steel and put it on a bud wheel from a tow truck. I found the 4 inch pipe and 1/2 inch flat plate in our transfer station. So I didn't misplace any of my tools I decided to hook everything onto the work station with steel rods.

When the work station needs to be moved, I just lean it on the rim and spin it to its next location.

My next project is to make a stand for the Pro-MIG® 175.
