    I need ideas for an air compressor cart

    Guys & Gals,

    I need some ideas for a portable air compressor cart. Any of you all out there have a pic I can look at for ideas?

    Thanks,

    I thought about the one in this ShopNotes once, but never made it. Hope to see some pics of some others too!

    Scott,

    Posting a pic of your compressor, or the make/model, might help. Might even get Dave to render it up in Sketch-up

    I have a Craftsman with wheels and a handle, but not a cart as such.

    Or perhaps the 4-wheel version?

    I thought that most portable air-compressors already had wheels under them. Or are you talking about one of these "contractor air compressors"?

    Its a HF model 4 gal. pancake style w/handle (no wheels), My 30 gal. Craftsman has wheels but a lot to lug around its piped up in the shop. Tod, I thought about a hand cart but I wanted to out hose storage of some sort on it and I was looking for some thing kinda square in design that I could strap into the bed of the truck without moving around. I forget who posted the ShopNotes issue but thanks I think I might actually have that issue around somewhere. Anyways thanks for the ideas.

    laugh all ya want, when space is a problem, everything has to be on wheels, its fast, its easier, and it keeps it off of cold damp floors.I was looking around the site to get some help making a decision, and came across this thread.

    I bought that red wagon over 20 years ago for my kids, been sitting up in the rafters of my garage.
    A neighbor of mine asked me to help him hang a couple hundred feet of mouldings after he stained it, so I put my compressor and crosscut saw on the wagon and wheeled it over. Its been on there since.
