I was in the steel supplier a few weeks ago and found this cut piece of pllate that would make a perfect table for me so I got it. I was going to call this post portable welding table, but at a little over 300# I didn't think that very portable. The idea behind this table is that I have a small shop with lots of tools crammed in it and don't want grinding grit all over everything. That meant I needed a welding table/ work area outside, but welding tables don't do well were they get wet. welding table 1.jpg

Weding table cont.
The result was this table, it has retractable pneumatic wheels that come completely off the ground when retracted. This is so it can go through grass as I don't like grinding on the driveway were it leaves rust stains after a rain. It is rather easy to move by myself and is rather solid in stance.weld t wheel down.jpg

Very nice work, I agree with the nice and clean design. This is what is so great about the forum, so many different ideas is a great way to inspire a person.

I like it, well thought out. As I'm looking the only thing I might change is a fender or spark deflector for the wheels.I like making a mess. I might have to do something like that.
How hard is it to drop the wheels?

Excellent concept and execution!
Please post up some photos of the wheels lowered into place and how it sets up to move.
Thank you for sharing!
