    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.

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

    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.

    Pretty standard 4'x8'x1/2" top, 4" channel, 3x3x1/4" legs, and a pipe rack on the back consuming otherwise useless space.
