    Default warped table frame

    finished my welding table this weekend but i got a little carried away with welding the short pieces of tube that connect the middle tube. i beveled the edges where the welds would be flat and one pass didn't fill the bevel in so i decided to fill it up. well as you can see i warped my frame and need some help figuring out how to fix it.

    *i welded all around the tube except for the top just a note.

    i had the suggestion from a guy at work to heat the welds up then hammer away at it i did that a little bit today but seemed i wasn't getting too far.

    my first thought was to cut the welds off on the side of the tubing and then hopefully i'd be able to hammer it in place from there.

    i'm up for any kind of advice

    I cant tell where its warped with your pictures! I can guess by the way you welded it, but it would be better if youd get some close ups and Ill tell you where to heat.

    Looks like the plate is not sitting flat on it? If thats were its at, is the frame warped or the plate? 100_1687.JPG

    Thanks for the description Diverdude!
    If I understand you correctly, and the frame is high in the center, this will fix it.

    Actually, that's tubing, me, I'd just set the thing upright, go right down the center, with a big hammer, straighten it right out. Why waste money on heat, if you really don't need it???
