      Safety First

      My simple answer is **** NO, you are not following safe welding practices. If you are welding in anything less then a 6'X6' non-combustible surface (including surrounding areas) you are looking to start a fire. Buy some heavy duty welding blankets ($70/each) and protect yourself.

      Have your fire fighting equipment at the ready - you will need it!

      Always ground your work and not the table if practicle.

        Assuming you meant the work lead on the welding circuit, why is this a "safety first" issue?

        And if you did indeed mean an electrical "ground", why is THAT a "safety first" issue?

        I'd venture to say that the VAST majority of welding that is conducted on a table has the work lead on the table.
