    Default Project Specific Thread: Welding tables

    Just had an idea to start a project specific thread. On this just post ideas and pictures for various welding tables that you have built or use regularly. This way we can start compiling information for easier research instead of looking for a dozen different threads. Not to sound rude, but if your table is simply a slab of plate with four legs, you might abstain from posting. On the other hand, if you have an idea that you think the rest of us would benefit from, by all means post away, especially with pictures. SSS

    Smile Welding Tables

    Great idea! I was going to use the Miller project table on this website but I wanted to put some type of threaded rod or screw-type thing on the legs so that the table could always be leveled and could be adjusted to the height of the table saw, BS, drill press, etc.

    I've got some nice slab tables. Very handy for many things. But more of my tables are a skeleton design, of various sizes. This allows clamping at many different locations within the framework of many fabrications. Some of these tables are very lightweight, others are made from 5/16x3x4" angle. When I get a job that a current table won't do very well, I build another table. Eventually, it's rare that I don't have a table that does the next job.

    I'll have to find some pictures later.

    Great idea, especially when you drag it to different spots in a shop and no floor is perfect.

    For just leveling purposes in fact, you only need the adjustment on one leg.

    I doubt you can level it with one adjuster unless it's a three legged table, and that would only be on one axis. What about three adjusters and one leg.....maybe that needs more thought

    Sorry, I said "level" but I was thinking something else. Good catch. One adjustment will allow you to prevent the table from rocking on any surface. But yes, you would need more adjustments to truly "level" it. Thanks.

    I usually just shoot for level in one axis (on both sides). That guarantees that it doesn't have a bind, which is all that's important for most fabrication.

    So, probably just putting the adjustment on each leg is best for meeting any need.

    How about a slab, four legs and a dead chicken? Now that's funny....I don't care who you are

    Default Welding table ideas

    i built my welding table a few years back, i put caster wheels on mine so i can roll it around where ever i need to as i work or put it in the corner out of the way when not in use.I also use it like a forklift with heavy projects on top of it and roll it where i need it instead of cracking the ole back toting heavy stuff around. I do not have a forklift, have two jib cranes set up and this table works great, caster wheels are cheap at Northern Tool , I went with 4" steel wheels 2000# capacity, fix them up where they can be raised or lowered by using square tubing ,2"x .250 and 2.5" x 3/16 wall so the 2" will slide inside the other, welded a 1" nut on top of the 2.5" with a hole in the top and cap the 2" tube then put a 1" bolt in the nut and you can raise or lower all 4 wheels,weld the casters to the bottom of the 2" tube, and then all you need is a crescent wrench to turn the bolts and bingo! Everyone that comes by my shop are impressed with the setup
