Cart Mobile Processing System

       This article describes a cart which can support an

      The cart disclosed herein keeps the processor elevated from the
floor surface to prevent contact with chemicals and dirt while the

supporting a wheel assembly.  A vertical triangular element 5 is
centered in each leg for strengthening purposes.  Bumper material can
be added to the surface of the legs to prevent the cart from damaging
artifacts in its environment or being damaged itself.  The processor
sits flush to the front and side frames of the cart so that the
visual lines in the processor's profile are carried through the cart.
 The rear frame 4 of the cart has a notched open detail that is the
width of the processor.  This aids in the mounting of the processor
to the cart.  The side frames of the cart and processor are in line
with a drawer 6 underneath to preserve the monolith form.

      The drawer 6 is for the storage of supplies, such as system
