You mentioned a cart for your welding gear, here's a pic of the one I build for mine. Just an idea. Started life as a HF yard cart.
Great use of unused materials! I have this cart like that I picked up at Sams a few years back to help in a move which It was used for the move and then was always in the way in the shed. It held junk. Now it sits outside my shop to aid in the removal of the mountain of scrap. When I get enough scrap where it can't hold anymore, I load it in the truck. That is my scrap timer as my wife would call it.

I have an idea to adapt a project on the Lincoln welding site. If you ever need some inspiration for a welding project, I suggest you visit there and see the projects with instructions and shopping lists that have been submitted.

I hope so! I am considering making the whole thing into a hitch cover for my truck so I can display it as well as cook on it. I will toy with that idea when it's nearing completion.

My CNC plasma was about as easy as could be to use. I have played with some standard machines like the one from Torchmate. It is all numbers and coordinates. Mine is more of a GUI based application. Think, HTML programming to web interface drag and drop. I have the option to use coordinates for my fine tuning cuts which offer me accuracy to within .005".
Also, I can cut from very thin gauge to 1.5" thick steel. I have cut Stainless, hot and cold rolled steel, Brass, and aluminum with it.

OK! I got it.. I will create a line of Micro cookers entitled "CHiPs" short for wood chips since these guys are small...

This little guy is called "Officer Jon"

The little stumps clone I am drawing up now will be "Officer Ponch"

What do you think?

Lol! Im actually toying with the idea of making this a hitch cover or at least mounted from my hitch on my truck so I can rock it daily and then use it too!

That might be doing too much though.

I don't think "Mini the Moocher" has been suggested has it?

I'm leaning twards the CHiP's theme though cause I can then go into more mini cookers with different CHiP's names.

Just so you know, I am not spending all my time thinking of a name for these.. lol!
