    how high a welding table should be?

    I'm planing my first table.
    i thought about 90 CM from the floor. so I can stand and work comfortably.

    Keep the saw off the table you don't want to un-clamp a project to cut the next piece for the same project..

    My top is 39" with some adjust-ability to it.. it is the same height as the work bench..



    If you look at the metal rack on the wall you will notice the removable rollers, they match up to all of my shop equipment stands Chop saws, miter saws, planers ect

    40 3/4"

    My table is a piece 3/4"(19mm) plate 36"(91cm) in dia. I put 3-40"(101.6cm) legs on it.
    It's fine for little things, but any thing very tall I have to stand on a box.
    For tig welding I can sit on a bar stool and work the pedal.
    Mig welding it's fine. Stick welding, it's back on the box again.
    Before I would cut that one down, I'd build one a litte shorter, maybe 4"or 5"
    (10cm or 12.7cm) shorter.

    I built my table 42" high. it's very comfortable standing / working if the projects aren't too big. However it puts the vise way to high. I'm thinking about receiver tubes on the legs to bring the vise lower.

    Table Height

    Of course it depends on the height of the work and the height of the operator.

    All of the tables in my plant are adjustable from about 28" to 38". Some legs are a tube inside a tube with a quick pin. Others have back to back channels with slots.

    You'll need a ladder to reach the table

    I am 5' 10" tall. All my benches are 40 inches tall. This seems to be the perfect height for me and those I have made benches for in the past. You obviously can make the bench any height you wish. If you are going to stand at the bench like you said you are I am sure you will find that 90 cm is too low for most tasks and will be hard on your back. I also suggest you add some receivers as others have mentioned. Good luck.
