Northern Industrial Welders Deluxe Welding Cabinet
Love this cart!
This cart is solid, easy to assemble and well worth the money. I use it for my Lincoln mig and the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is due to the tank storage. As someone who does aluminum, it would be nice to be able to store 2 pup tanks on the back. There is space and they would just need to modify the bracket. One other thing to note. It arrived with a broken drawer latch. Not a biggie as stuff happens and they got me a replacement very fast. But, we had a hard time finding the part as some of the newer cabinets do not have the latch. Some of the pictures on the description page show the no-latch version. All in all a great cart though!

Very high quality cart
I bought this cart at the same time I bought another vendors 5 drawer rolling tool cart so I had a chance to compare them. I was impressed with the 5 drawer but this cart is an order of magnitude above. You won't be disappointed.

Great Little Cabinet
Was concerned about the brand but am pleased once arrived. Heavy duty construction and easy to assembly. Shipping carrier left box at garage door and got rained on but contents were fine. Nice easy to roll wheels even with cabinet weighted down with welding machine, gas bottle, and a cabinet full of tools. The sales literature did not mention the safety latches on the drawers, nice but takes two hands to open. Would recommend, good product.

Deluxe Welding Cabinet
Very easy to assemble, gather tools first and you should have it up and in service in 20 Minutes. Had a SMALL dent on the corner I was going to take a photo of it but it was so small I could not find it again. All bolts had welded on backing plates so NO nuts required for assembly.

Finally a product you'll be proud to own. Quick shipping, easy to put together. and guess what? It is actually as represented, a good quality piece of craftsmanship. I like that it brings the welder up to a comfortable level and the drawers organize accessories well. Best of all it has a small footprint and doesn't take up half the garage.

Awsome Welding Cart!
This cart is awsome! All the features are great from the bottom drawer to hold my welding helmet to the top divided drawer to hold my tips and other small things. I got the cart and the first one was damaged, But Nothern Tool set up a free pick up of damaged product and sent new, With no charge to me!! Great product, Great company. Will buy from again. ;)

Great welding Cabinet
This cabinet is perfect. Assembly takes less than 10 minutes and it's a very sturdy cabinet. Drawer pulls are fairly nice and all drawers are secure. I'll be buying another one in the future.

Very nice cart
Very pleased with this cart. All the carts I found locally were either twice the price or too flimsy to even bring home. I was worried about this cart being a little top-heavy, but my MillerMatic 211 seems very secure on it. Caster wheels were alot bigger than they looked on the picture, a nice surprise.
One work of caution when assembling:
The first step is laying the cabinet on its back to attacht the bottom. Before doing this, open the top drawer and remove the divider, it is not fastened in. When I tipped the cart back the divider fell out of the drawer and wedged itself behind it making the top two drawers not open and close. With a couple of long screwdrivers I was able to fish it out, lay it back in the top drawer and all was good.

Well made Cart
I bought this cart to support a Miller Diversion 180 Tig Welder when it went on sale early in 10/2012. I went to the Columbia SC Store and picked it up after confirming it was a stocked item. I opened it up, inventoried the parts and hardware, then assembled it in 30-40 minutes. All of the parts and hardware were there, all the threaded bolt holes lined up and there was no damage from shipping. The powder coating looks pretty good and all of the drawers roll on bearings like some of the more expensive cabinets. The drawer latches catch and hold as they should and the front casters lock to hold the cart parked when needed. The bearings in the front casters are exposed and will require frequent cleaning with air presure if you can remember to do so. Assembly hardware include 10 and 13 mm (Capsize) bolts, lock and flat washers, 2 cotter pins and 2 flat wahers. The cabinet ships mostly assembled. You will have to install a plate for the axle and rear wheel, front casters, cable storage hooks, tank chain brackets, chains and the front handle. I read the assembly instruction after a parts inventory, put washers on bolts,started all of the hardware, then snugged all the bolts up with an air ratchet. Then I tightened everything with a hand ratchet to avoid stripping hardware. All my parts fit together easily and took a lot less effort than I expected for an "Imported" item. This cart is heavy enough to provide good stability and support to tall 7.5 inch tanks and 50-80lb welding machines. The drawers are a nice feature if you plane to use this as a specialty cart. I only move my welder 10-12 feet from tac projects, confined space and frame welding, so the wheels and casters that come with the cart fit my bill. But if you need something better an upgrade in hardware would be easy to do. This little cart will prevent a lot of damage to cables, torches and foot controls. There is adequate space for air flow between the tank and the rear of my welder. The height of the cart places the welder controls at about shoulder height when sitting in an office type work chair. I would recommend you confirm the demensions of your welder agains those of this cart. Some of the Miller and Lincoln Systems are close to the same as this top tray on this cart. I looked at a lot of carts before buyimg this one. I am satisfied that I made the right decision for what I need and would look at these carts first if the need arises for another one. If you need a cart, check these out then look at some the ceaper ones. You will spend a little more money, but you will get a lot more cart for what you spend.

My Welding cabinet was received in good shape and went together very easily. The only problems were,one drawer latch was too loose in the opening and that was quickly fixed with a little silicone rtv. One of the handles had a slight bend in it and that was also a quick fix. This unit is very sturdy and has tons of storage for supplies and helmet. I like it a lot.
