    Default Why did I wait so long

    This weekends project was a welding table 3'x5'x1/2'' The first problem I see is I had 4 swivel wheels without locks, might have to change them.

    The table looks great it should make your life alittle easier. Good luck with the wheels, don't chase the table around to much.

    Nice looking table! The power strip is an nice touch,
    With your welding skills I don't see why you couldn't build a parking brake out of an side crank tongue jack, with some sort of linkage to all four corners.

    Nice looking bench. The vise looks like one I inherited from my grandfather. It's been in steady use for about 60 years. Put it to good use!

    Where is the hole for holding a lit torch?
    It is a nice table.

    How about a piece of 2" x 2" or 3" x 3" angle iron stitch welded to each side of the table. That is how we make our pipe fabrication tables on the construction sites They are ideal for holding pieces of angle iron or pipe. you can lay 2 pieces in the "tray" and it hold them perfectly aligned for the first tack weld. Smaller angle can be used for light work.

    Nice work ! Been looking for a 3x5 or 3x6 cut but not too sucessful as of late. Neighbor built one 4x8x 5/8 or 3/4". Nice for layouts and it doesn't flex with a little heat. Thanks for the push..... have to get back to looking.

    Nice. Wish I made mine that size. You'll wonder how you ever welded without it.

    Thanks for the replies, I like the idea about taking the weight off the wheels, better than chasin the table. Hole for a lit torch, never thought about that soon to be added. Gary do you ave some pictures of you setup. Working on mounting the vise(5$ garage sale) and chop saw. The grinder is mounted on a tube that goes in a sleeve under the table so I can take it out and flip it over for storage or out of the way for bigger things
