My pancake air compressor is stored under my table saw when not in use. It was a hassle to grab it out and carry it to where it was needed. I built this compressor cart to make moving and storing the compressor easier on my back. The cart measures 18” x 18” x 35”. The cart was built using plywood and oak scarps that I had in the shop. The $8 was used to purchase a furniture moving dolly from Harbor Freight. The dolly was 12” x 18” with 3” swivel castors rated for 1000 lbs. The dolly was too narrow to use as-is so I scavenged the castors and hardware for use on the cart. The handle and arms were made from leftover 1” dowel and oak. I cut a 6” slot in the arms and angled the bottom at 10 degrees. To close the handle, you loosen the bolts, pull the handle up and then fold it down.
