        The amount of weight is limited by the rating on the casters. They hold 500lbs. a piece I think. Thanks

            My top is 4x4x3/8's. Just a little advise, bolt your top to the frame. It may not be flat after if you weld it. My plate was convex, but after bolting it laid perfectly flat.

            Good luck, Ja

              Just look at used equipment suppliers.

              I bought 2 - 4' x 8' x 1" thick steel tables with 3x3 tube legs and cross braces and shelf for $500 each. The tops alone is worth 800.

              For things like this, second hand is always a great option.

                here is how I did my table. Tubing for the legs, C channel for the table supports. Slots for clamps. overhang on the edges. I can put a clamp on 70% or more of the table. Comes in really handy.

                      Get angle and weld two together to make 3 x 3 square.

                        Go with the tube, verses angle, When a wheel hits a crack in the cement they have a tendancy to want to fold much sooner than a tube will.

                        I just had a 6,000 Lb. Grapple on my bench so spend a couple bucks more and you wont be sorry.

                          This is the table i made a couple of weeks ago, and if your garage floor is anything like mine get yourself some 5/8" bolts and nuts and make levelers as in pic 2
