Greg Dittmer's first project for his new Lincoln Electric Power MIG 140C was to build a cart for the welder and shielding gas bottle. The carts that are available from Lincoln were too tall for the welder to sit on them while stored under his welding table (total height could not exceed 27").
Greg made his welder cart from salvaged square tubing, rectangular tubing, angle iron, round stock, flat bar and chain. He used the drawings supplied in the welder's Operator's Manual to layout the mounting holes in the top angle iron frame and worked down from there. A couple evenings working in the shop and the cart was done.
At the high school where he is the shop instructor, Greg uses a 208/230 volt-powered Lincoln Power MIG 255. He had this to say about his 115 volt-powered Power MIG 140C, "Lincoln built a champ in the 140 and I am well satisfied with my home welder." Good luck on your next project Greg!
