    Default What's First: Chicken or Egg??

    Got my new Miller 211 earlier this week, but haven't had a chance to try it out yet. After a bit (quite a bit, I'm sure) of practice, I need to decide what I need to build first, a welding table, or a cart?? I could buy a nice cart with drawers for about $200, but what's the fun in that??
    I'm kinda leaning towards the table first, so that I have a good work area to build my cart. Any suggestions??

    BTW this little machine is a lot heavier than I expected; close to 100 lbs. Not something I'd want to lug around the shop!

    Congrats on the new welder! I bought a 252 about a month ago. Build your own cart if you can! Bragging rights are everything!! Check out the welding bench thread lots of good ideas!! I'd build the cart first!!

    I am going to recommend building the table first, that way you can work on the cart on the table and won't have to bend over.

    Kinda what I was thinking, as well. A table would be a bit easier to layout on the floor. Not quite as much cutting and welding, as would be fabricating a cart. A table would be a little more straight forward design, as compared to designing and fabing a welding cart.

    Randy, I purchased a Miller 211 back in October and absolutely love it! I've a had chance to weld with 110 and 220. My vote would be build your cart first. Yes the welder is portable but moving it is a lot easier on wheels and you don't have to waste gas disconnecting the bottle every time.

    Rwork, the best cart I have used is one I bought at an auction at a local school district for $25. It is the A/V cart used in classrooms and even has the cable hangers with it. There, problem solved, now build your table.What's First: Chicken or Egg??-black-table-jpg

    Absolutely the chicken. If the egg came first, who provided incubation???? No Brainer.
