My brother just gave me a "welding table". It's 30" X 48" with a 5/8" thick steel top. Angle legs 2"X2". Underneath is rusty & top has primary rust.
Need suggestions as to best way to clean it up short of hauling to a sandblaster. Plan to put casters on it and paint the under side and legs.
P.S. I started my "FREE" welding class . . . maybe in the next 10 weeks I'll learn to weld . . .

nice table, maybe the twisted wire wheel will clean it off if not to bad rusted, I'd hate to grind it if you dont have too, maybe a sanding disc or flap disc?? How about a belt sander?? If that rusty, post some pics when you get it fixed upScott

A big grinder and a nice dust mask. I like my 7" grinder with the rubber backing pad and a 50 grit sanding disk. A wire wheel or flap disk works good too.

a belt sander with a 60 grit belt has worked very, very well for me. it finishes more evenly than a grinder does.welder_one
nothing fancy, just a few hot glue guns for metal
