I have one of those benders and its not bad for what it is. The scroll bender is designed to use 3/16 material and wont acsept any thing thicker and thinner material is dificult to use in the scrroll attachment. There is a slot that you put youre metal in and any thing over 3/16 wont fit and any thing under 3/16 slips out unless you shim it up. But it does a nice enough job on the 3/16.Originally Posted by FABRAT

Welding TableOriginally Posted by WeldTeach
the best thing I have built onto them is a sliding tool holder on all 4 corners this is a tube inside a tube that makes the table frame
I slide it out to hold my Lead or Vise Grips or C clamps
when I need it when not needed I slide it in hidden from view and also doesnt interfere with top of table, these sliding tool holders also serve as a torch table when I slide them and locate a piece across both of them so slag will fall to floor.
I also have a shelf at about 10 inches from floor for fixtures and a smaller one about 6 inches from top for grinder or other tools
I will post a pic as soon as I can remember to take it with me to the shop
also I have an air hose hanger next to my blue print table and on the other side I have Oxygen acetylene bottles with a hose and torch holder"
the hose reel is on a stand and it also hold my 4 1/2 grinder on a piece of 4 " channel
keeping out of the way hope I helped you some what

Also another angle. I like a short table, 18" to 24" with a short stool. This way you can set with your feet on the floor and can reach taller projects on the table. A friend has his this way and I guess I just got use to it. He also used the heavy grating on his table instead of sheet stock.

Pictures....Bout time hu!!
Here are some pics of my table...not great ones but they are what i have...the shelf with the toolbox on it isnt in place now but it fits right up under the top and i am still working on a design to lock the foldup extensions in place. also the lifting plates are non existant as of this point...as you can tell by all the crap on the table it is in use instead up under construction. the other pics here are of a concrete form i am building for my company. i am building two of them. they are 2X2X6 and they are poured on their side an the block is tipped up after it cures. the two L shaped halves of the forms fit together with the two tabs on each end and then wedges are pounded in to lock the form together. we have two of these forms already and i am building two more. the blocks made in the forms are made from extra concrete brought back from jobs. the blocks stack and lock together. i will keep you posted on the progress of these with pics and explaination. once they are done they will be easier to understand.
