Howdy one and all. I am in the process of finally starting to build my welding table, my first one, and my first real big project by myself outside of work. SO I am using 2x2x1/4 steel for the frame, and using either 3/16 or 3/8 plate for the top. I am not sure which one I am going to use, I have a call in to my local steel shop to see if they have any remmants of plate. It's a bit pricey I have discovered. So my question is about the setting when welding the plate to the frame. Do I set the maching for the plate thickness and be careful of burning through the frame, or set it for frame thickness? Or is this such a small difference in thickness that it does not matter? I want to make sure I do it right, thanks for your advice and guidance.
