  • Welding table... Scrap metal, cannibalized parts, clearance table casters....

    I'm brewing up a welding table....
    Here's some pictures so far.
    Most everything except the 3/8" plate pieces were scrap or clearance table stuff.
    I paid an unheard of $17 (total!) for the 5" casters (truly $110-120 value in casters)...
    Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time...
    Paid $14 dollars for the bolts nuts and washers to fasten them!

    Well done! If you take the time to look, sometimes you'll be suprised at what you can find. It seems like it all averages out for me. Sometimes I get smokin deals on stuff and other times I pay through the nose.
    Sometimes there's no second chances.

            98 % done after today...

            I added some tool widgets.
            Added a bottom shelf for more storage.
            Wrestled with taking the cup out of the two 3/8" plate pieces.
            That's a whole other story....
            I got the flatness down to a little under 1/16" over the 5 foot dimension.
            OK, time to have it start paying for itself....

            PS Jigantor... Close enough to Miller blue in real life... It is Ace Hardware (Rustoleum) "Safety Blue"

              My 2 cents.
              The grid is nice for clamping stuff.
              The platform makes it portable.
              The foot keeps it in place.
              The spacers allow height adjustment.
              This started out as a grid that fit over a taller table.

                  Sweet, Add a couple of reciever tubes for the chop saw and vice and your good to go for just about anything. Perhaps a little more overlap on the edges, but a darn nice design. 3/8th thick top will be nice and the 1/16 bow is not really a big deal over 5 feet. Especially since you know about it and its direction, so you can work around it.
