    Can't build this one unless you own a foundry. They were going to take it to the scrap yard. Got it for free. TJ

    Default My Welding Table Minus Dead Chicken

    Here are some pictures of my main welding work table. It is 44 " x 97" x 5/8" thick, sitting on 3 x 3 x 3/8 angle frame being supported on 6-4 x 4 x 3/8 square tubing legs with a bottom shelf as you can see. It took a bobcat to bring this into my shop. My friend and I built this a few years ago. You could park your car on this table and it wouldn't budge. I will describe the pictures in order of their appearance.

    The 1st picture shows 1 x 2 C channel bolted to table for railing assembly

    2nd picture shows another view of same

    3rd picture - notice each leg has a receiver tube for a MIG torch

    4th picture - notice CNC Router machine in background that made the last picture I show here (for my neighbor who just lost a loved pet)

    5th picture - notice hardy hole (spelling might be wrong) for accessories such as shrinker/stretcher shown.

    6th picture- notice to the left of the shrinker/stretcher, the pair of 1 " round
    welding to underneath of table surface to bend/straighten metal pickets etc.

    7th picture- picture of Memorial Plaque for neighbor who lost pet made with CNC Machine in 4th picture.

    One thing I seen that I thought was cool was a guy at work welded a piece of 2" angle to the side of the table. On the long side of the rectangle work table the angle was welded flush with the top and the "V" of the angle pointing down. It makes working with pipe very nice and easy! I want to add that to my current table.

    You'd be amazed how often you drop a square tube in there, too.

    I built mine middle of last year, I had a thread about it but never posted pics when done.

    1/2" top, 3x3x1/8" box tube legs and frame to support the top, two wire shelves underneath, on 5" casters. I have four 2" hitch receives around the table for sticking my vise in, cheap bender, and any other tools I come up with. Since its on wheels the table will sometimes want to move, I have two dual locking casters but they aren't always much help. The 3x3 frame under the table is set back 6" so you have room to clamp around the edges. The inner section of the table is very very flat, the edges that hang over the frame are not as flat. If I did it again I would not use such heavy material, 2.5" box would probably have been fine for the top frame, and 2" for the legs. I built the table upside down on the floor and used clamps and people to pull the top flat when welding the 3x3 to it.

    Here is some pics of some benchs we built for the shop. Always like to see what everybody has bulit, gives me ideas sometimes. Notice on the work bench there is a tongue extension, Its for a 20,000 lb gvw trailer, the lunnette eyes wear and have to be replaced. Post more pics of tool holders or benchs or shops, theres got to be lots of ideas out there

    Here's one I built 12 yrs ago out of my scrap pile.It's 13' long and 41''wide ,the beams are 24' 85# and the cross pieces are 18'' 55#.It sets on 8'' steel casters and I have 4 - 1 1/4"jack screws to level or stabilize it.If I need a steel table I just set a piece of plate on it.I built it as a base for building truck bodies and salt spreaders at work and worked out so well the boss wouldn't let me bring it home until I built another one for the shop.It also works good for straightening bent snow plows .

    Now thats some big I-beams. Don't think we could tear that up. I bet it doesn't move when your bending something. Heavy is good in a workbench/table
