    Yes, I realize that, Sonora, but is this a welding table, or part of the space shuttle????

    Hey these guys get carried away with these welding tables!
    I remember the days when I was glad to have a stump to work on! Most of the time we got a short cut off laying in a mud puddle!

    I'd cut out the whole 'top' section, all 5 tubes, and re-weld in only 2 tubes going straight accross, one at each outter edge surrounding the perimeter of the table, no joints in the middle.

    I don't understand why it needed the extra tube crossing the other way in the middle. One tube along each side would have been perfect. To support the top in the middle, a single tube going straight accross the middle parallel to the other 2, with no extra tubes joining it, would support the middle fine with no chance for warping anything.

    how far out is the top?
    can the low spots be shimmed
    and/or the high part be ground down?

    Default stump

    i got an oak stump under my table be it a small one but drag a dirty torch over it when its burning and it cleans it real nice, if that tube table was mine, i would put a spacer in the middle, lay some channel on it and push it down with some c clamps, mayby a hammer to shock it, mild steel dosent take much to move,
