This'll be the second DIY gaming project requiring welding skillz this month! If you shied away from the DIY DDR dancepad due to lack of welding equipment, tool-blog Toolmonger has some suggestions. First, check out their awesome guide to inexpensive welders (they settled on the $380 Hobart's Handler 125 EZ), then head over to their guide on how to build a totally badass gaming chair with $80 worth of materials. That covers the chair, steel, and paint; it's bring-your-own-steering-wheel-pedal-set.
The best part? Even though they've spelled it all out for you, you're still not going to do anything about it ... but you could enter their contest to win the thing! Just make a comment somewhere on Toolmonger before July 31, and your lazy ass might win an awesome chair to stick it in.
