The first Pic I built the frame and attached the steel wheels.

Hey Purple here's a pic of the plasma cut you've been wanting to see.

And here I'm setting up the height from the smoker to the frame, working on the mounts at the moment.

I've also cut the top of the door, just waiting see if my source on some hinges works out before i do anymore on that, if not ill go with the ones i used on my last smoker.

Thanks, I guess it just depends on your situation, did you get the swivel wheels? 2 of mine are swivel and 2 are not, but seem to be working fine for me so far.

Looks like you are already making some big progress! I am planning on building something very similair next. (After I graduate from college, have a job and buy a plasma cutter and welder) So maybe in the next 5 or so years.

Thanks, They'll be plenty of pics on this build, I'll have the legs finished in a little bit, 3 of 4 done, and hope to have the pipe welded to the base and back on the floor this evening.

Good luck with that, I had big plans after college 15 years ago Very Happy

Now I have a wife, house, and 2 kids that put a damper on the plans.

All good though Wink

Hillbilly Smoker, great looking build so far!

Post pictures of the counterweight when you get that far so we can open some old wounds. Wink (And teach a math lesson)

Well....., looks like I'm down till next weekend, i left my Argon bottle on last night and got a leak somewhere and lost it all, 1200psi. Mad , Oh well, needed to fill my Oxygen bottle anyway. There are things i could do to the build but i hate being limited.

Umm.............., No. lol.
I don't have flux wire and i don't plan on buying any. guess I'm spoiled on gas welding, I'm in no hurry i have about 2 1/2 months till deer season so it'll be done in plenty of time.
