Handy Portable Shop CarFrancis Peroutka, New Prague, Minn., built a handy portable shop cart that lets him put his pto-driven emergency electrical genera-tor to use even when there's no power outage but yet keeps the cart ready for emergency use whenever needed.
The generator powers a 180-amp welder, a 3/4-hp. electric motor that runs a flexible power shaft fitted with an emery stone, as well as any electric-powered hand tool. The shop cart also carries a gas welding unit, a portable 2 1/2 by 3 1/2-ft. plate for welding on the ground.
A work table mounted above the genera-tor is made from 4 1/2 by 6 1/2-ft. plate steel and is fitted with a pipe vise and a jaw vise mounted at either end. Brackets are fitted to a sidewall to hang C-clamps, vise grips, welding helmet, fire extinguisher, and 4-in. dia. tubes to hold welding rods. Welding tips are stored in a small cabinet on top along with wire brushes and spare gloves.
