    Here is my list of indispensibles

    !. clamp rack
    2. Pencil, punch tape tray
    3 torch sling or mount
    4 open ended tube to slide a smaller tube in for vises or a table extension for longer projects
    5 an electric outlet
    6 hooks for cords etc
    7 place to hand grinder
    8 make sure there is at least a 2 inch lip all around the top for clamping
    Great point about the lip for clamping. I'll have to remember that when I get to building mine.

    Actually the table was just working with what I had on hand, not a lot of pre thought went into to it. But to date nothing has crushed it.

    If that's the case, then why so small? Surely you could have found a piece 8'x20'x1" lying around somewhere.

    Something I just thought about and found funny. My welding table is going to be bolted together.

    When I get to where I think I can weld good enough, I'll weld everything in place, remove the bolts and weld the holes up.

    I've decided on 36x48. I'm pricing the plate tomorrow. If it isn't too expensive, I'm going with 3/8" plate. If they want too much for that, I'll go with 1/4 and add some angle underneath to stiffen it up for the 48" stretch. Countersunk bolts of course, at least for now.

    If you can afford 3/8" or 1/2", I'd go that route.

    My thinking is it is a steel plate they put over an opening in the road that was dug up so people can still use the road until the opening (hole) can be filled in. Like a temporary bridge, heavy steel plate. Probably need to re-mortgage your house in order to buy one.
